Boasting a membership of 22 affiliate institutions, the Singapore Athletics (SA) continues to build on its proud history and tradition as Singapore’s governing body in the track and field for the new millennium.

Since then, the SA has toiled and grown, and is now poised to chart new territories for the future.

What is Safe Sport?
It is defined as “an athletic environment that is respectful, equitable and free from all forms of harassment and abuse” (International Olympic Committee Consensus Statement, 2016).
Why is Safe Sport important?
All participants in sport, including athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers, have a right to engage in Safe Sport. In 2018, Sport Singapore (SportSG) embarked on a multi-agency collaborative effort by launching the Safe Sport Commission and made a rallying call for the sporting fraternity to collectively safeguard sport.
In consultation with the International Olympic Committee and local authorities, SportSG and the Safe Sport Commission has developed policies and guidelines aimed towards eradicating harassment and abuse in sport. This includes establishing a reporting process for Safe Sport-related matters and providing awareness programmes to ensure the public is kept informed and updated of the available support.
