On 19 June 2018, the National Youth Sports Institute (NYSI) organised its inaugural Huddle for student-athletes under the Athletics Support Programme (ASP). 

The ASP is a new programme meant to provide sports science and coaching support for student-athletes who finished in the top 16 of their events at the National Schools Track and Field Championships. It hopes to achieve continuity among track and field student-athletes in Singapore. 

A total of 32 participants attended the Huddle, who ranged from lower secondary to junior college student-athletes. They had the chance to mingle with one another through ice-breaker games, as well as listen to a sharing on sports science, athlete life, and how NYSI can support them.

They also gained nutrition tips during a snack break, before setting off for an Amazing Race where they competed in groups to complete as many given tasks in the vicinity of the Sports Hub.
