WWPIS are delighted to announce a new partnership with Singapore Gymnastics. This new partnership will see the whole WWPIS programme rolled out across the country in both recreational and performance environments.
All clubs, parents and coaches will be given access to a customised Singapore Gymnastics platform which includes all of the exclusive WWPIS content featuring over 250 blogs, videos, podcasts and infographics.
Included in the platform are two of our main resources: Great Sports Parenting and Engage.
Workshops will be delivered across the country to bring these resources to life and it is hoped that the project will create a real sense of partnership with clubs, coaches and parents working effectively together to create the best possible environments for young players, putting them at the heart of the sporting experience.
Also available for purchase for clubs and parents is the ‘Our Sporting Journey’ series for Under 5, Under 7 and Under 9 gymnasts which incorporate two gymnastic years in each book.
The ‘Our Sporting Journey’ is a series of interactive books for children, putting them at the heart of the sporting experience, allowing them to have plenty of fun, grow as people both on and off the field and immerse themselves in their sporting experience as they progress through their sporting journey.
The books all have plenty of activities for children, encourage positive interaction between children and their parents, require plenty of parental involvement whether that be in having positive conversations, playing in the garden or helping to stick in the pictures that will allow everyone to build up a memory book that will last a lifetime.
Karen Norden (General Manager Singapore Gymnastics) said,
‘Being a parent is extremely rewarding but also challenging, with no rule book to guide parents through the sporting journey. By working with WWPIS, we are reaching out to support our parents so we can work together as a community to ensure all the children involved in gymnastics can reach their full potential in life!
Our purpose as an organisation is to support our clubs to deliver safe, enjoyable, and satisfying experiences for gymnastics participants that enriches their lives and the community. Through our partnership with WWPIS we are taking the next steps in achieving our vision.
From the partnership Singapore Gymnastics will have access to tailored workshops and web resources. There are customised guide books for clubs, coaches and parents, as well as interactive journals for the younger athlete and their parents. This initiative with WWPIS will go a long way to further SG’s aspiration to work in partnership with the community to create a nurturing and safe environment for all gymnasts in Singapore.’
Gordon MacLelland (CEO of WWPIS) said,
‘It is really exciting to be working with Singapore Gymnastics and see the passion and determination shown by the National Governing Body to create the best possible environments for young gymnasts and their support networks. We are looking forward to the whole project and visiting Singapore in September where we will be working with staff, coaches and parents within their national training centre, whilst providing virtual support to all of the gymnastics community throughout the year.’
