ASEAN SCHOOLS GAMES
ASEAN Schools Games (ASG) is an annual competition for student athletes from countries affiliated to the ASEAN Schools Sports Council (ASSC). Prior to 2009, the Games were played based on satellite, single sports events. This was revamped in 2009, where a Games format was implemented. The first ASG planned under the new Games format with ten sports, was organized by Thailand and it marked a milestone for ASSC as it moved from hosting satellite championships to consolidating all sports into one annual major sporting event.
OBJECTIVES OF ASG
- To promote ASEAN solidarity among our youth through school sports;
- To provide opportunities for school athletes to benchmark their sporting talents in the ASEAN region; and
- To provide opportunities for school athletes to interact and engage in cultural exchange within ASEAN.
