Every Saturday afternoon, James Low gets hyped up for 90 minutes of running fun in the sun.

The 11-year-old is part of the Satellite Centre for Sports Development (SCSD) organised by the Singapore Athletic Association (SAA). The SCSD, which is endorsed by the Singapore Sports Council (SSC), started in October 2008 and provides structured training for children between the ages of seven and 16.

Held at ITE College East, it caters specifically to youths, honing their agility and endurance while giving them an outlet to have fun on the weekend.

Currently, there are two training centres, one each in Republic Polytechnic and ITE College East, with a third in the works at Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
