Families for Life celebrates at Sportshub

Last week, families descended at Sportshub for Families For Life (FFL) celebrations. We were happy to see multi-generation families gather together.

Carnival-like atmosphere, with buskers and fun activities engaging families.

The idea of FFL celebrations is for families to enjoy a day out, try out any sports you like.

Soccer, Segway or volleyball anyone?

Even though there are queues for activities, families were generally enthusiastic and happy. But we do hope event would start at 5pm instead of 3pm, so we can avoid the afternoon sun.

You can try dancing too, Bhangra is HOT (literally under the Sun).

We miss the Kayaking sessions.

Bazaar and carnival-like atmosphere.

We ended the evening with a round of guns.

A little complain. FFL has earlier invited families to try their luck at winning more than 10,000 tickets to local attractions. A very good initiative, but the tickets collection was a letdown.

Besides the long queue, there was no shelter from the Sun. Families for Life Celebrations is meant for whole families to play and participate together. It defeats the purpose if one family member has to queue and miss family time.

Hope this aspect will be improved next year, perhaps collection need not be on the same day.

SengkangBabies will always support any event which promotes Families first 🙂

A little background about “Families for Life”.
“Families for Life” aims to celebrate and reinforce the importance of the family. This iconic national event is championed by the Families for Life Council (FFL) (previously National Family Council), with strong support from the support from the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF). The Celebrations aims to remind Singaporeans to put their families at top priority and spend time together to create shared family memories.

2014’s theme is “Family Time, Precious Time”.

Our family will be looking forward to segway and perhaps kayaking. If this is your first trip to Sports Hub, you might wish to pop inside the splendid stadium too. (Just take note the water playground on the second floor might not be ready yet).

Have you seen the rock climbing wall inside Kallang Wave already?

At “Families for Life” celebrations, the various activities and sports will provide an opportunity for families to nurture a passion for sports too. We always believe that sports will buildup a child’s resilience and instil a never-give-up attitude. The family which enjoys sports together can only become healthier and stronger.
