Families looking for activities to keep their kids active and engaged during the school break need not look further — Singapore Sports Hub has a variety to offer for different age groups, from toddlers to teenagers. Here is a quick guide to help you spark some fun ideas.

FOR TODDLERS AND PRE-SCHOOLERS

Held at the Sports Hub Fitness Studio, each 45-minute session is designed to help young children develop their sense of movement, build confidence and learn skills that will help them pick up sports later in life.

Kids will have fun while staying cool at the Splash-N-Surf water play area.

Slide and swim at the Splash-N-Surf Kids Water Playground
Looking to cool off in the hot and humid weather? Bring your little ones to the water play area Splash-N-Surf, where bright slides and whimsical water sprays promise fun and adventure. There’s also a 0.6 m-deep kids pool with yellow bucket seats to help toddlers practise their swimming kicks or just to make a splash. Entry is free.

Run a race at the 100PLUS Promenade
If your child fancies themself a sprinter, why not bring them to 100PLUS Promenade, a sheltered jogging track that encircles the National Stadium? Better still, invite family friends and organise a mini-athletics meet among yourselves. The winner gets to decide where to eat at Kallang Wave Mall, where many dining options await you.

Learn a board game with Sports Hub Giant Chess
Exercise your child’s concentration and memory by playing chess with them. Upsize the fun by using the extra-large pieces at the Sports Hub Giant Chess. Your child will delight in studying the details of each piece and pushing them across the chessboard. Due to popular demand, book your session at least seven days in advance.

FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL GOERS

Introduce your kids to the waves with bodyboarding and skimboarding at the half-pipe surfing facility STINGRAY®.

Have a go at bodyboarding or skimboarding at STINGRAY®
If your child is above 1.2 m in height, let them try bodyboarding and skimboarding at half-pipe surfing facility STINGRAY®. Instructors will show beginners how to position themselves properly on the surfboard and how to control their movement on it. This activity is ideal for adventurous kids who love a challenge. Advanced booking is required.

Play netball or basketball at a Sports Hub court
Book an outdoor or indoor court, and let your child enjoy a ball game with their buddies during the holidays. Your child will love spending time with their school friends outside of the normal classroom setting. Booking of the court is required.

Climb a wall at Climb Central
Help your child build confidence, develop spatial awareness and improve hand, foot and eye coordination by introducing them to rock climbing at Climb Central, located at Kallang Wave Mall. To take part, your child must be 5 years or older, weigh at least 20 kg and be above 1.1 m in height. A safety briefing will be conducted for first-timers.

FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL TEENS

Canoe or kayak with your child
The Water Sports Centre at Singapore Sports Hub offers water sports equipment for public rental. Don’t have experience canoeing or kayaking? Not to worry; it has a range of kayaks and canoes that are suitable for complete beginners. Bond with your teen as you paddle down the Kallang Basin together, admiring the scenic Singapore skyline. If your child enjoys the sport, sign them up for kayak certification courses.

Up their Esports gameplay
As with regular sports, esports promote teamwork, communication, leadership and strategy — valuable life skills that can help shape teens into well-rounded individuals. The Esports Experience Centre, which spans over 12,000 sq ft (1,114 sq m), is the largest esports centre in Singapore. Besides observing others at play, your child can also test out the latest consoles, games and accessories for free.

Learn to maintain a bicycle
Learning doesn’t have to stop during the school holidays. Empower your child with practical knowledge by having them learn how to repair a punctured tire, adjust brakes or clean the bicycle at a workshop conducted by Shimano Cycling World. They’d know what to do the next time their or your ride needs maintenance.

FOR MIXED-AGE GROUPS
If you have kids of different ages, bring them to these attractions.

Exciting, interactive exhibits await at the Singapore Sports Museum.

Visit Singapore Sports Museum
Inspire your children with stories of national athletes and their sporting aspirations at the Singapore Sports Museum.
