Web-based database solution for sports performance indicators – the Singapore Sports School experience.
Presently, there are many software solutions developed for sports y specifically to track the performance of athletes. The Singapore Sports School developed an in-house database software that facilitated an end-to-end solution particularly to monitor the progress of the fully-boarded
swimmers who are training and studying within the school compound. The challenge was very much in obtaining the data and processing it prior to inputting to the system. This was largely due to the fact that the data must be specific to the needs of the coaches and not the other way round.
The swimming academy was chosen as an example. This paper depicts the solution that was ultimately implemented and how various components contributed 'life' to it. More importantly, it will give the readers an insight into the 'situated' environment where the process was taking place.
