Membership is free and all Singaporeans and Permanent Residents received $100 credits upon signing up.

SEA Games & ASEAN Para Games Experience Tour

ActiveSG was a key enabler for the 2015 SEA Games, with many of our staff performing a variety of roles such as venue management, protocol, and logistics. Several of our facilities served as competition venues for sports like Gymnastics, Hockey, and Swimming. Following the successful organisation of SEA Games, Singapore also hosted the ASEAN Para Games in 2015 and, once again, ActiveSG rallied together to deliver once again.

During the ASEAN Para Games in 2015, we organised the inaugural Sport Experience Tour, enabling thousands of Singaporeans to experience the thrills of attending an international sporting event and to support Team Singapore.

2016

Launch of ActiveSG Academies & Clubs

ActiveSG Academies and Clubs are designed to develop and sharpen children’s interest in sports in an enjoyable manner, while also helping them build character, develop positive core values, and acquire life skills. The ActiveSG Football Academy was the first sport academy to be launched by then Minister for Culture, Community and Youth, Ms Grace Fu, on 2 April 2016. A total of 312 children aged six to twelve years old participated in the first run of the programme, learning how to play football and life skills from top coaches. Today, there are several ActiveSG academies and clubs covering a wide range of sports including football, basketball, athletics, tennis, waterpolo, canoe, hockey, volleyball, and table tennis, with more than 8,000 participants in its seasonal programmes to provide children and youth with the opportunity to play, learn and live better through sport.

Parasport at Singapore National Games

For the first time in local sport history, para-athletes participated alongside their able-bodied peers at the Singapore National Games (SNG) organised by ActiveSG from 30 July to 7 August 2016. Five parasports were featured, namely boccia, archery, tenpin bowling, swimming and table tennis.

Car-free Sunday & Launch of Basketball Academy

ActiveSG worked with Team Nila and SportCares to hold sport try-outs for families among other activities at the first Car-Free Sunday held on 28 February 2016. ActiveSG also launched the Basketball Academy at Car-Free Sunday and achieved a Singapore record with 2,180 people dribbling a basketball for five minutes.

ActiveSG
10Years journey

2017

In 2017, ActiveSG launched various initiatives to engage different groups of the local community.

Active Health

The Active Health initiative was launched to empower and motivate individuals to take ownership of their health and well-being. Active Health aims to shift the mindset of Singaporeans from a "problem-solving mode" of seeking treatment only when in ill-health, towards an "aspiration-mode" of active living by engaging in sport and physical activities.

Nurture Kids Programme

The Nurture Kids programme is a flagship programme specially designed to enable early childhood educators to help their preschoolers experience more physical activity and play time with outdoor learning or play opportunities. Since then, we have partnered with over 600 preschools to train their educators in teaching fundamental movement skills for preschoolers aged 5-6 years.

ActiveSG Gym @ Enabling Village

ActiveSG partnered SG Enable to operate an ActiveSG Inclusive Gym within the Enabling Village. The gym has features that enable persons with disabilities to work out and participate in fitness and sport programmes. In this gym, machines use air-pressure instead of weights, which are gentler on muscles and joints and better for elderly users.

ActiveSG Academics & Clubs

Since the launch of our first Football Academy launch in 2016, we have grown to include over 10 academies and clubs including athletics, badminton, hockey and tennis. These academies and clubs have played an instrumental role in encouraging more youths to engage in sports and providing a sport development pathway to develop their skills and enable a lifetime of sports participation.

A team of 400 Sport Singapore staff and Dorm Care workers meticulously planned and incorporated sport into the workers’ schedules to keep them active and help boost their overall wellbeing.
