Coaches are the driving force behind the development and success of our athletes. No athlete, no matter how talented, can achieve success without the guidance and support of their coaches.
Coaches' Day is an initiative of Sport Singapore which aims to raise the level of recognition accorded to coaches nationwide for the significant role they play in the holistic development of their athletes.
We encourage Singaporeans to express their appreciation to their coaches in their own special way.
Coaches' Day 2021
This year Coaches' Day falls on 3rd September 2021, Friday.
To honour our coaches' dedication and perseverance, especially given the challenges of COVID-19, in keeping our community active and safe, we would like to invite coaches to join us at the virtual celebratory event on 2nd September 2021, Thursday. Coaches may register at go.gov.sg/coachesday2021. Registration closes on 26 August.
You may also join us in expressing our appreciation to our coaches with the #SGThankYouCoach campaign, by one of the following ways:
As part of the SG Together movement, a digital wall has also been created to thank our frontline, essential workers and everyday heroes in helping Singapore get through COVID-19. Organisations and athletes are invited to write their words of appreciation to their coaches on the message board with a category specially created for coaches and instructors - https://www.appreciate.gov.sg/message/coaches-instructors/. You may view the gallery of messages by selecting ‘Coaches and Instructors' - https://www.appreciate.gov.sg/gallery/
Coaches are the ones constantly providing advice, life lessons and imparting priceless experience acquired through their own journey. They shy away from the limelight, allowing their athletes to bask in the glory and achievements and truly are the unsung heroes.
Throughout the year, we have heard many accounts of coaches going the extra mile for their charges. These stories have warmed our hearts and highlighted the amount of sacrifices our coaches have made in the countless practice sessions and intense competitions. We relish this opportunity to pay tribute to the coaches who have worked tirelessly with their athletes in their pursuit of sporting excellence. Let us join in the effort to salute these heroes for their tireless contribution, passion and commitment in shaping our athletes for the future, and ultimately, shaping a sporting Singapore! #SGThankYouCoach #CoachAsLeader
