The Sports Excellence programme is an elite programme introduced and administered by the Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) to identify and develop world-class athletes. This programme challenges athletes to excel in sports and achieve their maximum potential through a structured course of intensive training coupled with opportunities to compete at the highest levels. The Sports Excellence programme has over the years successfully produced a number of regional and world-class athletes for Singapore.

spexCarding provides an enhanced level of support for athletes by Sport Singapore. In order to be part of this programme, athletes are required to be nominated by their National Sports Associations (NSAs). Through this programme, athletes are allocated spexCarding levels based on their performance and achievements.

The Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) swimming programme aims to raise the profile of the sport in Singapore and to promote participation at both development and elite levels.
