SSC teams up with Coca-Cola to bring more sporting opportunities to local communities The Let’s Play movement is receiving a S$5 million boost as the Singapore Sports Council (SSC) and Coca-Cola team up to bring more sporting fun to the local communities in Singapore.

The five-year partnership (from 2011 to 2015) will see the SSC and Coca-Cola working together to increase participation in sporting activities at the grassroots level in Singapore. The aim is to invite all Singaporeans to embrace the Let’s Play values and make sports a lifestyle choice be it through playing, watching, cheering or volunteering for sports.

A haul of 19 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games medals over the last ten years, which included a gold medal in each of those five games; add another two Asian Games bronze medals from 2002 and 2006 and you have quite a good return for one of Singapore’s non-elite sports over the past decade.

Yet Wushu still falls short in terms of following as compared to the glamour sports in Singapore like Football, Swimming and Table Tennis. Maybe it is because Wushu is still not recognised as a full-fledged official Olympic sport, despite Beijing hosting a Wushu competition parallel to the 2008 Olympic Games. Or maybe they are just not selling the fact that Hollywood action star Jet Li originally gained fame as part of the wushu team that took the National Wushu Champion of China title five times.

Let's Play The Play Times Coaches Corner: William Woo
Behind every successful athlete is an equally accomplished mentor who shows them the way. Shying away from the limelight and allowing his protégés the accolades and glory they deserve, 2010 Coach of the Year William Woo’s reach and influence goes way beyond the last pin.

A man born to bowl, Woo’s bowling career, both playing and coaching has spanned over 20 years. Winning a host of local and international tournaments during his five years with the national team, he first discovered his potential for coaching and after attending courses, Woo finally became a full-time coach in 1995.

Woo’s coaching prowess was evident from the beginning, rising quickly through the ranks to bag the first of his two Coach of the Year awards in 1996, after being promoted to National Coach within his first year at the Singapore Bowling Federation.

One of the first few things I do each and every single morning after my morning alarm goes off, is to reach for the daily newspapers and immediately dive deep into the sports pages to have my daily dosage of sports news.

It is almost like a ritual.

For me, this is my way to keeping myself in tune with what is happening in the world of sport, particularly in Singapore.

For many others, a daily ritual involving sport can be a run in the park, a game of football with friends at the basketball court in school, a sprint down the track at the Bishan Stadium, a dip in one of the Singapore Sports Council’s many Sports and Recreation Centres or a daily brisk walk on the treadmill at the gym.

For many of us, sports is a way of life and without it, there is an inexplicable void in our daily routines.

Which is why, despite our challenging schedules or work and school commitments, we make the effort to play a sport or indulge in some form of sporting activity on a daily basis.

The Singapore Sports Council (SSC) is also consistently coming up with ways to help you play or be involved in sport in one way or another, just so that you can make sports a way of your life.

Be it the recently launched Let’s Play Non Stop initiative to get Singaporeans to pick up a different sport every month; or by providing opportunities for young writers and photographers to learn the tricks of the trade or even through reading articles on this month electronic direct mailer, the SSC is constantly finding new ways to reach out to you just so that you too will spread the word about the benefits of being involved in sports.

In keeping with the changing times, the SSC also recognises that we have to find new and more interesting ways to engage our audience through our outreach materials and it is with this in mind that we have put our monthly electronic newsletter The Play Times through a redesign.

From this month onwards, we have added a few more interactive features to The Play Times, just so we can engage you a little more.

We would also like to hear your thoughts on Singapore sports, so that we can do whatever we can to enhance the sporting experience for you and your family.

Please drop me an email and leave me your ideas and feedback, if you have any.

Hope you like the all new The Play Times and don’t forget to make sports a part of your daily routine.

Everyday.
