Marsiling Secondary School also offers DSA to eligible students via Sepaktakraw (Boys only). This is in line with our Learning for Life Programme which aims to build leadership, resilience and persons of good character.
Sepaktakraw is an exciting indoor sport that requires quickness of mind, tenacity, speed, agility, communication and teamwork. It is an exciting team sport that appeals to many. Marsiling’s Sepaktakraw was formed in 2020 to cater to students’ interest. We aim to create a dynamic environment for the young men where they can excel. Trainings are of high intensity and yet fun. We hope to attract more young men to come forward and train with us and make their mark during their stay with us and beyond.
To date, the sport has nearly 40 students. The sport has had a huge appeal since the new Indoor Sports Hall was completed in early 2021. We have an excellent training facility and a very strong environment to nurture the players; even if they have little or no background in the sport. The Sepaktakraw programme has proven to be an effective way to help our students develop personal qualities such as teamwork, self-discipline and leadership skills.
This programme ensures that all players are competent with Sepaktakraw skills and play (skills to trap the ball, pass, juggle and defend, as well as fitness training to improve endurance and footwork).
During periods of competition, there will be additional training sessions to sufficiently prepare the boys for the tournament. Friendly matches will also be arranged to help the players gain more game experience.
Training Frequency: 2 sessions (3 hours each) per week
