The main theme of the CoachSG Conference 2020 was “Coaching Better Everyday : Think Global, ACT Local – Adapt, Create, Transform.” It was a 3-day hybrid event which saw coaches (local and foreign), safeguarding officers, parents, sport administrators and students participating in the 4th edition of the Conference. Discussions were held to address the evolving landscape for coaching and development, in light of moving towards "the new normal" in our everyday lives. 

Fast forward a year later, CoachSG and the Singapore Sport Institute are working extremely hard to prepare for the 5th edition of the Conference, which is taking place from 26 to 28 October 2021. With a new theme of “Sport Reimagined: Thriving Amidst Challenges”,  it aims to encapsulate the opportunities that were presented to coaches in 2020, to reimagine their coaching practices and professionally arm themselves with progressive pedagogies in the digital space. 

ACT, revisited, is a reminder for coaches to continually: “Adapt” and be receptive to “Create” and seize opportunities with renewed knowledge, and “Transform” the local coaching ecosystem leveraged through innovative coaching.

"I am very pleased to announce that we have lined up renowned and inspiring keynote speakers and a host of engaging expert presenters in multiple breakout sessions in a specially curated programme with the strands of Sport Leadership, Coaching Pedagogy and Sport Science. Coupled with a truly immersive online platform, I believe that the programme will most certainly excite, engage and educate all of us", said Mohamed Azhar Yusof (Head, CoachSG).
