We are a full member of the Athletic Conference of Singapore International Schools (ACSIS). The mission of ACSIS is to provide young athletes with an opportunity to compete in a broad and balanced inter-school athletic programme that is an integral part of their educational experience. Win or lose, the ACSIS schools encourage learners to demonstrate a winning effort, exhibit sportsmanship and demonstrate respect for all. This membership allows Nexus to compete in a wide range of sports with international schools across Singapore.
We enjoy our sport at Nexus but we also take it seriously. Our Health & Physical Education department is staffed by 7 full-time ex-patriate members of staff, including FINA qualified Swimming coaches, all of whom have significant individual expertise in their specialist areas that allows them to run recreational and competitive sports programmes. We have outstanding facilities (indoor and outdoor), a swimming pool complex that we are proud of and highly qualified staff including a dedicated Director of Sport. We love sport at Nexus and so do our learners.
In January 2020, Nexus will move to a $230 million campus that has been fitted with the latest technology to enhance our sports programme. The Aquatics centre boasts an Olympic-size pool, plus a 20m warm up pool and fitness suite. The 50m pool will be fitted with the latest Omega touch pad timing system. A competition-sized artificial turf pitch will sit alongside the pool. A viewing deck sits above the bleachers so the parents can give their full support to their children. There are two double gymnasiums for volleyball, basketball and netball. Sport at Nexus is free of charge and each team is supported by a manager and a coach. They train up to three times a week with weekly fixtures during the season.
As a member of ACSIS we compete in Badminton, Volleyball, Football, Netball, Athletics & Cross Country, Basketball and Cricket. All ACSIS sports cater for children aged 8 to 18 years old. We also offer other sports like Gymnastics, Rugby, Ultimate Frisbee and more. We believe that if we have enough learners that are interested we can make it happen! With two members of staff that have represented their country at international events, we are confident we are able to support and guide both passionate sports people right up to Olympic hopefuls to reach their dreams.
