Introduction | Contact Us



The School Sports Programme (SSP) is organised by various National Sports Associations (NSAs), co-ordinated and subvented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), and co-organised by the Education Bureau (EDB), the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU).  The SSP is conducted in line with the daily schedule of schools to enable students of primary, secondary and special schools in the territory to participate in diverse sports activities at school during their leisure time.


The objectives of the SSP are:

  • to nurture students' interest in sports so as to foster a sporting culture on school campuses;
  • to encourage students to participate in sports on a regular basis and develop a healthy and active lifestyle;
  • to raise the sport performance standard among students; and
  • to identify potential student athletes for further training.

Activities under SSP

The SSP consists of seven subsidiary programmes/schemes, namely the Sport Education Programme, the Easy Sport Programme, the Outreach Coaching Programme, the Joint Schools Sports Training Programme, the Badges Award Scheme, the Sports Award Scheme and the Sport Captain Programme.
