Values and Principles in Sports (VPS)

With effect from March 2015, the NSYS workshops will be replaced by the Values and Principles in Sports (VPS) workshops.  

Apart from covering key content from the previous NSYS course, the new VPS workshop will also enable participants to develop their own personal coaching philosophies, design sports programmes with the ‘Game of Life’ Framework and leverage values and attributes in the development of a successful sports team. 

Please take note that attendees of the previously offered ‘NSYS for Coaching in Singapore Schools” (NSYS) and “Building Capacity of Coaches and Instructors” (BCCI) workshops are deemed to have fulfilled Ministry of Education’s (MOE) requirements for registration of all sports coaches and instructors in schools and they do not need to attend the new VPS workshop. For coaches who had completed modules 1-3 in the previous NSYS or BCCI, they will be required to sign up for a bridging workshop with MOE on the fourth module in order to fulfil MOE’s requirements.    

The new VPS workshop is one of the six topics under the Singapore Coach Excellence (SG-Coach) Theory Level One Programme and exemption of attendance from VPS can be sought. You may click here to find out more information on the SG-Coach Programmes.

Please note that the VPS workshop is conducted in English.
