  1. Nomination
  • Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) to nominate the best athletes to represent Singapore at the 9th ASEAN Para Games 2017 according to SNPC’s selection criteria as mentioned below. The final selection of athletes remains at the discretion of SNPC.

  • In their nominations, SDSC should state clearly in the forms the justification for the athletes to be selected.

  • Athlete’s eligibility:
    • Must be a Singapore citizen
    • Must be at least 15 years of age in 2017 (Calculation: 2017 minus year born)
    • Compliance with the sport specific classification rules
    • Must be in good standing with SNPC and SDSC


  1. Selection Criteria
  • Athletes who have currently achieved at least 3rd placing e.g. time/score/mark of the 2015 ASEAN Para Games. For non-quantifiable sports, they should currently be ranked 3rd among the ASEAN countries.

  • Athletes/Teams who have currently achieved at least 6th placing e.g. time/score/mark/rank of the 2015 ASEAN Para Games, will be considered for selection if they show potential to equal or surpass it in time for the Games.

  • The selection of athletes will also be based on the availability of the events and the number of slots available in each event.

  • All achievements submitted for consideration should have taken place at SDSC sanctioned championships and trials, but SDSC may submit the achievements from overseas championships and meets of athletes studying in overseas tertiary institutions. However, these have to be properly accredited and sanctioned to be accepted.

  • All achievements should be achieved within 15 months period before SNPC final selection meeting.


  1. Other Considerations

In addition to the above selection criteria, the following will be taken into consideration in an athlete:

  • Attitude and behaviour:
  • Current skill level and fitness;
  • Level of commitment and attendance;
  • Potential for future development;
  • Ability to demonstrate team spirit and work well with team mates


  1. Appeal Process
  • Appeal against non-selection by SNPC must be made in writing to SNPC within 48 hours of the announcement of the athletes being selected for ASEAN Para Games.
  • The ground for any appeal is that:
    • The athlete’s omission was a result of a failure by SNPC to properly apply the selection criteria set out in this policy
    • The athlete’s omission was as a result of a failure by SNPC to adhere to the requirement guidelines set out in this policy
  • An appeal must be made in writing with new supporting documentation and must be accompanied by a deposit of S$100.00 by cheque, payable to “Singapore National Paralympic Council”. If the appeal is successful, the deposit will be refunded in full.
  • SNPC Appeals Committee will consider and deliberate the appeal and, if deemed justifiable, will hear the appeal by the athlete concerned.

  • SNPC will, in writing, inform all parties about the decision taken to either uphold or reject the appeal.  The decision will be final and no further correspondence will be entertained.
