Has all the SEA Games 2015 action – and the medals Singapore has won – inspired Junior to get sporty? Good news: ActiveSG, which aims to encourage participation in sport among Singaporeans, is organising a slew of holiday programmes for kids, where they can learn the fundamentals of sports like football, archery, badminton, basketball, wushu, floorball and table tennis. These workshops will be held at various stadiums and sports complexes across the island through June 24.
Expect to pay around $30 for a two-hour football clinic, and $35 for a two-hour basketball clinic. What’s more, if you’re a Singapore citizen or permanent resident, you can sign up to be an ActiveSG member, upon which you’ll be credited with ActiveSG$100. You can then use these credits to offset up to 30 per cent of the registration fees.
Do note that Junior will have to bring his own rackets for the badminton, tennis and table tennis programmes; also, meals will not be provided for any programme. Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis, so sign your child up at www.myactivesg.com/start-out/children-youth/activesg-school-holiday-sports-programmes. Who knows – Junior might just become Singapore’s next SEA Games star!
