National Registry of Exercise Professionals [New]

Building capabilities in the fitness industry with new National Registry of Exercise Professionals

With the aim to professionalise Singapore’s fitness industry and build capabilities in the areas of safety and knowledge, Sport Singapore will launch a new National Registry of Exercise Professionals (NREP) from April 2023. The registry seeks to support our exercise professionals to upskill and register on the NREP by providing free membership to the National Instructors and Coaches Association (NICA).

With the implementation of the NREP:

  • There will be clear safety standards and capability requirements to help the fitness sector raise its professional standards;
  • Exercise professionals will enjoy free membership with the National Instructors and Coaches Association (NICA) in the first year. As NICA members, exercise professionals will enjoy benefits that include mediation support for workplace disputes, training funding to defray essential course fees and business networking & resources; and
  • Members of public will have access to the Registry so that they can make more informed decisions and have greater assurance when engaging accredited exercise professionals.

To register*, exercise professionals need the following:

 *Exercise professionals who do not possess the Standard First Aid with AED & CPR certification but would like to be registered on NREP can do so and receive a provisional NREP membership. With the provisional membership, they will be able to register for the Standard First Aid course at a subsidised rate. Upon successful completion of the First Aid course, the exercise professional will be accorded the full NREP membership.

Singapore Sport Hall of Fame [New]

Refresh to recognise outstanding Sports personalities; TeamSG athletes give back

  • The Singapore Sport Hall of Fame will be revised to recognise athletes who demonstrate a sustained contribution back to sport, beyond medal achievement. It will also include a new category for sport leaders such as administrators, coaches and scientists. The President of Singapore will be presenting the Singapore Sport Hall of Fame award.

  • Our Hall of Fame awardees are not only recognised for their sporting contributions, but also valued as role models who can galvanise TeamSG athletes to give back to the community. Since the launch of TeamSG Cares in April 2022, close to 80 athletes have been involved in TeamSG Cares initiatives. There are more than 4 initiatives a month, which include weekly food distribution activities, school engagements, talks to underprivileged youths, sport clinics (boxing, bowling, football), and fund-raising activities for President’s Challenge.

  • Former and current athletes can also tap on a SportSG-funded Active Citizen Grant (ACG) to kickstart ground-up initiatives on their own or in collaboration with corporate partners that contribute towards giving back to community. As of end-2022, SportSG has approved and disbursed over $75,000 through the ACG grant to 5 athletes.

Disability Sports Master Plan [Update]

Updating the Disability Sports Master Plan for greater inclusivity in sports

  • MCCY and SportSG, together with partner agencies, will update the DSMP to enhance our current initiatives and further drive the take-up of disability sports.
  • Launched in 2016, the DSMP has contributed to more sports participation among persons with disabilities. Based on SportSG’s National Sport Participation Survey, the sports participation rate among persons with disabilities has grown from 28% in 2015 to 50% in 2019. This compares with a sports participation rate of 66% for the general population in 2019. 
  • With the launch of the Enabling Masterplan 2030 by MSF, it is timely to review the outcomes and impact of DSMP initiatives and update our strategies to provide a further boost to persons with disabilities in sports participation, through enhancing current initiatives and plugging gaps in the system.
  • MCCY will work towards increasing opportunities for mass sports participation for persons with disabilities and enhancing support for aspiring para-athletes.

Efforts in supporting disability sports  

  • Since 2016, SportSG has introduced a range of disability sport programmes, including learn-to-play programmes and an annual Play Inclusive campaign.
  • Since its launch in March 2022, the Para Sport Academy has rolled out 10 sports over two phases with more than 200 participants to date. The academy has also built a robust network of partners in the para sport ecosystem to create more opportunities for persons with disabilities to participate in sport, as well as develop pathways for persons with disabilities who wish to pursue sport at a competitive level. 
  • As of January 2023, SportSG has retrofitted swimming pools at six ActiveSG Sport Centres with ramps for wheelchairs and eight Inclusive ActiveSG gyms, with upcoming redevelopment plans to enhance accessibility to all sports facilities and other amenities for persons with disabilities. We are working towards making all ActiveSG Gyms inclusive by 2026.

Unleash The Roar! [Update]

Making progress towards growing a strong pipeline of football talent

  • Since the launch of Unleash the Roar! (UTR!) in 2021, a total of 12 School Football Academies have been established, of which two have dedicated programmes for girls. UTR! plans to expand the number of SFAs and increase its programme intake by the beginning of 2024. This will bring the total participation numbers to approximately 800 male and female footballers, aged 13 to 16 in SFA programmes – an increase from the 400 youths in the pilot phase launched in 2022.

  • UTR! has also started a partnership with Spain’s LaLiga Academy to provide overseas training opportunities to help Singapore’s young football players grow and develop their skills. In November 2022, 20 UTR! youths had the opportunity to attend a month-long training and compete with La Liga Academy footballers. UTR! will work towards making such experiences more available for the youths.

This will include a scholarship programme that will provide promising footballers the best environment to train and compete. The first batch of scholarships is expected to be awarded by end-2023. More details on the scholarship and eligibility criteria will be announced in the coming months.
