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.

This is the entry point for access to Information System for Coaches, Athletes and NSAs (iCAN). The iCAN system allows Singapore National Athletes and NSAs instant access to their uploaded information database. Existing carded athletes can also use the system to update their personal details and sports related information.  iCAN is best viewed using IE9.0 & above, Mozilla Firefox 3.0 & above, Safari 3.0 & above or Google Chrome 6.0 & above with 1024 x 768 resolution. For more tips to use the system, please refer to the link below:
