Athletes' Corner

The Singapore Sports Institute (SSI) firmly believes in long-term sport and athlete development in Singapore. To help elite athletes reach their highest sporting potential in the international arena, SSI provides a wide range of Spex (Sports Excellence) programmes and support services.

National Sports Associations (NSAs) can nominate their elite athletes to be carded (categorised) based on their achievements in the assessment period. Carded athletes can then have access to SSI’s customised Spex programmes and support services.

With effect from 1 August 2011, all spexCarded athletes are required to apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) if they need to use any prohibited medication or method of treatment.

For further information, please visit Anti-Doping Singapore (ADS) website:



Note: The online iCAN (information system for Coaches, Athletes and NSAs) will be unavailable from 16 March 2018 as we are migrating to a new platform - SportSync. Features on SportSync would include athlete's profile management and carding application tracking.

For urgent assistance, please contact us directly and provide us your NRIC number and sport:
