Through pilot projects, focus groups, needs sensing, and speaking to stakeholders in the community, we have designed several programmes that serve different needs and gaps in the disability sports industry.
|Yes! I Can
||Persons with disabilities can start their sporting
journey through the Yes! I Can disability sports
programme. Yes! I Can is a learn-to-play type programme conducted by certified and experienced coaches so participants can acquire
basic sports skills in a fun, safe and conducive
environment. Yes! I Can runs for 8-10 sessions depending on the
sport, and costs between $100 to $250 per course. Sports include swimming, badminton and football.
||Jointly established by Temasek Foundation Cares and SportCares, Play-Ability provides recreational sports programmes for persons with disabilities with limited access to sports. PWDs will have access to community sports facilities, such as badminton courts, so they can socialise and stay active on a regular basis.
|Wow! Experience Sport
||Every wondered if you’d ever be able

class or rock climb?
Wow! Experience Sport gives persons
with disabilities a chance to try out
a novel activity outside the usual
|Introduction to Para Sports Coaching
||This programme is certified by International Paralympic Committee (IPC), the global governing body of the Paralympic Movement, and hosted
by Sport Singapore. It aims to equip coaches in Singapore and the region with the tools to coach para athletes. Interested participants should have coaching experience in able-bodied or para sports, and the desire to serve as a coach in para sports.
||From getting equipped with watersafety skills to learning how to
adapt sports to different abilities,
caregivers can participate in a series
of workshops to enable them and their
wards to live better through sport.
|Intro to Sport
||Intro a Sport matches an organisation or a special education school with experienced coaches and persons of expertise in a sport or fitness activity so they can learn how to use sport independently and effectively for physical education, team building, cocurricular activities, bonding and more. Starting with a coach-the-coaches learning phase and ending with
supervised practical sessions, this initiative is designed to ensure
long term sustainability of sporting activities in schools and organisations.
