Softball

The Anglo-Chinese Softball Squad was first formed in 2000 with one team of eager secondary one students ably led by teacher-in-charge Mrs Yoon Lay Beng. The squad has expanded to consist of four teams in Division ‘A’ Boys and Division ‘A’ Girls (Years 5 and 6), Division ‘B’ (Years 3 and 4), and Division ‘C’ (Years 1 and 2). Mrs Yoon remains the teacher-in-charge and joined by Mr Bobby Chew, Mr Brian Chirnside and Ms Lydia Ho.

All four teams are involved in the National inter-school competitions and train regularly under the expert guidance of Coach Daniel Heng and Coach Nimpa. The school is also an active participant at the Singapore Recreation Club’s Annual Softball Carnival.

Training occurs in school usually on the Artificial Turf, where a softball diamond has been painted out at a corner, near the squash courts.  There is ample equipment that allows the players to practice and improve themselves during training sessions. With the inclusion of over 10 different bats, a couple of softball pitching machines, practice nets, and bases, there is a variety of available equipment that ensure an all-rounded performance training of the players.
