Seniors

We asked, you answered:

“We may be getting older but we are young at heart. Sport keeps us socially, mentally and physically active.”

Vision 2030 applauds your spirit. Singapore Sports Council is working with our fellow government agencies on Sporting Seniors to create more innovative space and modified programmes for our Seniors.

To help you age actively, the Coaching Academy will enhance the capabilities of coaches to cater specifically to your needs.

The SportCares Foundation and movement will drive social initiatives for disadvantaged seniors.

Caring for Seniors in Need

What you said

Some Seniors have limited means. But as people over 50, we need the physical and social benefits of sports more than ever.

WHAT WE CAN DO

The SportCares Foundation and Movement will be able to help. Set up to drive social initiatives through sport, the Foundation will fund programmes to help needy seniors live better through sports.


Integrated Services for Sporting Seniors

What you said

Sports can help Seniors stay active, socialise and make new friends.

WHAT WE CAN DO

With our partners and relevant stakeholders, we will create a fitness ecosystem to motivate and support our Sporting Seniors. Through an integrated approach, more Seniors will have opportunities to adopt sporting lifestyles.


More Convenience and Accessibility

Proposal Image

What you said

Make sports more accessible, affordable and convenient. How about seniors-only lanes in swimming pools during the morning and a Seniors ‘happy hour’ on rates during off-peak periods?

WHAT WE CAN DO

With the new Sports Facilities Master Plan, facilities will be designed with Seniors in mind. We will work with partners to extend innovations into precincts and parks. Programmes will meet the varying needs of Seniors who want to play sports.

What you said

We know sports, and we are ready to help people who don’t. Volunteering makes us feel connected and productive.

The new Sporting Volunteers framework will produce more opportunities for seniors to contribute as coaches, trainers, technical officials or event organisers. As volunteers, Seniors will live more engaged and meaningful lives through sports.


Stay Connected and Engaged

Proposal Image

What you said

We need places to play sports. We want to be able to spend times with friends and families and develop friendships with our neighbours.

WHAT WE CAN DO

The next big thing: the “Super Sports Clubs”. This integrated approach to programming, spaces, coaches and players will feature opportunities for everyone, young and old, to learn, develop, play and excel.
