Singapore Weiqi Association Youth Connection

Singapore Weiqi Association (SWA) Youth Connection (YC) is a subsidiary group of SWA established in June 2007 with the aim of reaching out to more youths and young adults. It is an organization that is wholly managed by youth volunteers and leaders. SWAYC also serves as a supporting role to complement the administration of the SWA Executive Committee in the running of all SWA activities and events.

SWAYC has its activities and policies aimed at addressing the needs of current and potential youth players ages 15 to 30. With 2 current clubs set up respectively in *Scape and at Bishan Community Club, the SWAYC currently supports about 40 active members and has plans to start up more clubs in the east, west and central areas. These clubs currently offer free classes for beginner and intermediate level players in a casual setting and are conducted on a weekly basis during weekday nights and weekends to accommodate school and work commitments of its members.

SWAYC members who consistently help out and choose to take on a more active role would also enjoy more benefits such as having priority for exclusive events, increased chances of selection for overseas opportunities and a point-based rewards system among others.
