ASEAN School Games (ASG) is an annual games for high schools in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and organised under the authority of the ASEAN Schools Sports Council (ASSC). The ASSC is an apolitical regional sports council that promotes sports among member countries. Prior to 2009, the games were played based on satellite, single sports events. This was changed in 2009, where a games format was implemented. The 1st ASG planned under the new games format was hosted by Thailand in 2009, while the 2nd, 3rd and 4th ASG were hosted by Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, respectively.[1][2][3]

Objectives

  • To promote ASEAN Solidarity in our youth through school sports;
