This year’s HSCUP is the 8th annual HSCUP which means it has been more than 8 years since this celebration of athleticism, sportsmanship and perseverance was created. HSCUP has been a benchmark for young athletes all around Jakarta to show their passion, capability and talent.
As a highly-anticipated annual sports competition among schools in the Jakarta area, HSCUP features multiple sport competitions, which include: Futsal, Basketball, Swimming and Fencing. Since the registration date was announced in April, earlier this year, the number of schools that registered were nothing short of extraordinary. With more than 30 schools and more than a hundred athletes participating, it marks a successful comeback for HSCUP.

Day 3 (June 17, 2023) was the height of the event, featuring all the final matches across all 4 sports competitions and also featuring the awarding and closing ceremony.
