About Active Parents


Active Parents is a movement from Sport Singapore that seeks to inspire and enable parents to play an active role in their children's lives. We hope to serve parents to help their children get an Active Start, build good sporting foundations, and develop holistically to live better through sport.

Live Better Through Sport

Sport is powerful. It has the ability to improve our physical, mental and emotional well-being, and even help us discover a sense of purpose. Today, sport and physical activity can be adapted to suit different lifestyles and needs for the young and throughout the lifetime.
