NATIONAL COACHES' REMARKS
KOH RUOH JIE
I am grateful and very honoured to be appointed as Coach of the Singapore Men's Softball Team. The team has come a long way and achieved major breakthroughs over the past 3 years.
Despite the restrictions due to Covid, I am confident that with my colleagues, Coach Farhan and Coach William, we will continue to strive with passion to lead the team towards qualifying and excelling in the various world championships.
I sincerely look forward to continue working with the team to bring us to greater heights.
Thank you SBSA for giving me the opportunity to continue to contribute back to the sport and coaching the men's teams alongside my colleagues. It’s been a successful run for the men's team for the past 3 years.
The pandemic has definitely stunted our progress slightly but I hope it will not break our athletes' spirit and momentum of the team. I look forward to working closely with the athletes and other stakeholders and hope to achieve even greater success in the years to come.
I feel truly honoured and delighted to be appointed as Coach for the Singapore women’s softball team, and I would like to thank the Singapore Baseball and Softball Association for this privilege and opportunity. The team is embarking on a new chapter and faces many challenges ahead, but together with a supportive SBSA and a team of passionate players, I am excited to forge a new path.
I have a deep love and passion for softball. I represented the nation in 4 SEA Games as a player, and I have also made it a career path for myself. For over 15 years, I have coached in the school scene, graduated to coach the National Youth team for 5 years, and was an assistant coach with the National women’s team for the last 4 years.
My goals are to improve on the team’s regional, Asian, and World rankings and the team's overall quality of play. Teamwork and enjoyment of the game is a team culture I strongly believe in. Together with my experience, passion and competitive spirit, I want to inspire the players and bring newfound energy and belief and achieve this.
