FAS’ Reply To Media Query Regarding Youth Development


“In line with our youth development philosophy, we adopt a holistic approach to the growth and development of the player as a whole person. Hence, we place a strong emphasis on character building in our youth development programmes, including the Junior Centres of Excellence and National Football Academy.

“At the same time, we are also seeking to create a world-class football development environment to nurture our talents – as shared by Technical Director Michel Sablon at a presentation titled “Shaping the Future of Singapore Football” in late May.

“Ultimately, it is our aim to develop better players who also become better persons through our youth development programmes. Youth development is a long-term project and we seek the continued support of our stakeholders, including the media, which will strengthen our abilities to groom the next generation of talented youth players in Singapore.”
