SINGAPORE — Singaporeans and permanent residents who are ActiveSG members will each receive ActiveSG$100 to sign up for sports programmes and utilise facilities at the various ActiveSG Sports Centres islandwide.

This was announced by Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong at the official launch of ActiveSG, a national drive to make sports more accessible, relevant and affordable here, at the Jurong West Sports Centre today (Apr 26). Already, 30,000 people have activated their membership.

“Singaporeans from all walks of life, regardless of age, skill level, or physical ability can lead an active lifestyle through sports. They can come together to learn, train, compete in a range of sports,” said Mr Wong.

“We will credit all ActiveSG members with ActiveSG$100 to help kick-start their fitness routine. I hope that Singaporeans will come onboard to embrace this movement and share this with their family and friends too so that we can all get active and Live Better Through Sport.”

Also present at the launch were Singapore National Olympic Council Vice-President and International Olympic Committee Finance Commission chief Ng Ser Miang, and Richard Seow, Chairman of Sport Singapore — formerly known as the Singapore Sports Council.

Rebranded from the “Super Sports Club” concept under Vision 2030, the long-term blueprint for sports in Singapore, ActiveSG aims to create a sporting ecosystem that provides innovative and experiential sports-related programmes at sports centres islandwide.

Registered ActiveSG members will enjoy benefits, including priority booking of facilities and complimentary trial classes. These can be done through its new Membership Management System (MMS). Members can also use the MMS as a network to form interest groups, signing up for social events, forming sports leagues and zonal affiliation for members.

ActiveSG will also be the sole provider of new fitness programmes into Singapore such as Piloxing and Masala Bhangra to meet the rising demand for studio fitness regimes, while ActiveSG Sports Centres will eventually include additional facilities and services, including Aqua Spinning for a cycling workout that uses water resistance, and Flippa Ball, a modiified version of water polo for children.

To help promote ActiveSG, open houses will also be held from 9am to 6pm at the Sengkang Sports Centre on Sunday (Apr 27), Yio Chu Kang Sports Centre (May 3), Bishan Sports Centre (May 4) and the Pasir Ris Sports Centre (May 10).

Singaporeans and permanent residents can sign-up as an ActiveSG member via www.myactivesg.com or at any of the Sports Centres islandwide.
