New sports facilities strategy for Singapore

New sports facilities strategy for Singapore
March 17, 2011

Singapore's Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sport (MCYS) and the Singapore Sports Council (SSC) are developing a new sports facilities strategy for the island nation.

Covering a 20-year period, the Sports Facilities Master Plan aims to guide the development of new venues in order to increase participation and enhance the country's sports sector.
Three tiers of sites have been identified:

• Tier One includes an ecosystem at Kallang Sports City to boast facilities capable of hosting international events. The Singapore Sports Hub would be its 'premier venue' to accommodate sports lifestyle and entertainment zones, as well as research and development centres.
• Tier Two consists of regional integrated town hubs, with the first scheduled for completion in Tampines by 2015.
• Tier Three features community and lifestyle facilities.

A MCYS spokesperson explained that "in partnership with the Ministry of Education, SSC will expand the Dual-Use Scheme to open more school fields and indoor sports hall for public use outside school hours."

The announcement comes after SSC announced increased funding to help national sports associations implement youth development schemes.

The SSC has also announced that it is providing increased funding to help national sports associations (NSA) implement youth development schemes.

In the financial year 2011, more than SG$33 million (AUS$25.9 million) will be made available in direct funding for 49 NSAs.

From that funding, more than SG$18 million (AUS $14.1 million) will go towards creating a holistic athlete development structure.

Explaining the funding, Teo Ser Luck, MCYS Senior Parliamentary Secretary stated "Singapore needs holistic youth development programs to identify and groom our young sporting talent into the world champions of tomorrow."
