DSA - SPORTS AND GAMES (FLOORBALL)

With effect from 2019, Kent Ridge Secondary School will offer DSA to eligible students via Floorball, Badminton and Basketball. This is in line with our Learning for Life Programme which harnesses the philosophy of Olympism to develop our students through the interaction of mind, body and will.

Background

Floorball is an indoor sport that requires speed, agility, excellent dribbling skills and teamwork. It is an exciting sport to play due to its speed and variability.

KR Floorball started in 2008 with a humble cohort of 36 enthusiastic students, all of whom have little or no background in the sport. However, the CCA gradually grew in strength over the years and we have now a total of 100 students.

The CCA-Floorball programme has proven to be an effective way to help our students develop personal qualities such as teamwork, self-discipline and leadership skills. Both our boys’ and girls’ teams compete in the National ‘B’ and ‘C’ Division competitions. Our players are trained by dedicated and professional coaches, supported by a strong group of passionate alumni, who are passionate about raising the standard of the sport in the school.
