600 parents and kids rounded off first run of ActiveSG Football Academy programme

Singapore , 26 Jun 2016

Since its kick-off on 28 May, a total of 312 children aged six to twelve years old has participated in the first run of the ActiveSG football academy programme, learning how to play football and life skills from top coaches in Singapore. The one-month junior holiday programme concluded earlier today with a friendly football tournament between participants from the academy’s five venues.

The next run of the junior programme will begin on 02 July and will span across 10 weeks during the national school term. Training sessions will be held on Saturday and Sunday mornings while an additional session on Wednesday afternoon is an option for participants. Participants are encouraged to attend training sessions at least once a week.

Sessions for new age group

Following the success of the academy’s junior programme, the academy is planning to extend their programme to youths aged 13 to 16 years old. Free trials will be conducted in July and August across the 5 venues for interested participants before the youth programme officially begins in September.

Parents interested to find out more information or sign their child up for the junior programme or free trials can do so online at https://www.myactivesg.com/start-out/children-youth/academy/football
