Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam visited Sengkang Hockey Stadium this past Saturday to officially launch the ActiveSG Hockey Academy this past Saturday.
The whole hockey fraternity, including coaches, players and umpires, turned up to support this big development in the local hockey scene.
Our Kuala Lumpur bound Team Singapore athletes were a big part of this event, running coaching clinics, skills challenges and mingling with the present crowd.
We were also lucky to be graced by Olympians Ajit Singh (Melbourne, 1956), Anwarul Haque and Douglas Nonis (Tokyo, 1964).
A King of the Court competition was also run in conjunction with the launch and showcased participation in our sport across all age groups and genders.
The academy will work with the Singapore Hockey Federation to offer affordable and quality coaching programmes for children.
