Dear NROC coaches,
1. Rebranding and Website
You may be aware of our rebranding efforts and name change to Sport Singapore from 1 April 2014. This fresher and more vibrant identity will better reflect our journey towards Vision 2030 – a goal for Singaporeans to live better through sports. Our Chief Executive Officer, Mr Lim Teck Yin shared that besides being the governing authority for the investment of public funds in sport in Singapore, this new brand communicates our identity as being part of the ecosystem to partner our stakeholders. We are most excited to share our rebranding efforts and brand new corporate and activesg web portals:

3. Continuing Coach Education: National Standards for Youth Sports (NSYS) Workshops
The “NSYS” and “NSYS for Coaching in Singapore Schools” workshops will be discontinued after December 2014, after which the NSYS modules will be integrated into the theory component of the National Coaching Accreditation Programme (NCAP).
We would like to highlight that it is a requirement for coaches who are interested in coaching in the Sports Education Programme (SEP) and Co-curricular activities (CCAs) in Ministry of Education’s schools to attend the NSYS workshops. Thus, for coaches who have yet to do so, we strongly encourage you to register for the upcoming NSYS workshops in 2014. Please register via www.icanbook.com.sg.
Please note the following plans regarding the workshops:
a. Regular “NSYS for Coaching in Singapore Schools” workshops will be conducted till December 2014 (refer to attached schedule).
b. Sport Singapore will not be issuing NSYS certificates once the NSYS workshops cease. There will be a central database of coaches who are NSYS-trained.
c. For new coaches, the topic on NSYS will be included in the theory component of the revised NCAP. Thus, new coaches who have completed the NCAP programme will be included in the database stated in point (b).
d. For existing coaches who are interested to attend the Coaching in Singapore Schools Workshop (module 4), it will be conducted as an independent workshop by the Ministry of Education. Information on this workshop will be made available from August 2014.
