Football Academy Head and Coaches

Led by former Singapore international Aleksandar Duric, the ActiveSG Football Academy exemplifies his belief in the purposefulness of sport for the development of our young players. 

Heading the programme at the various venues will be seven head coaches - Hyrizan Jufri, Isa Halim, Mohamad Hairil Amin, Richard Bok, Robin Chitrakar, Steven Tan and Terry Pathmanathan

At the Academy boys and girls learn, play and develop progressively through fun exercises, small-sided games and exciting competition. 

Beyond the basic skills, your child will learn about the important values such as discipline, respect and team spirit, and acquire valuable life skills including communication, goal setting and problem solving through the game of football. Our holistic football programme is designed to build character and encourage the children to pursue their sporting passion with the right attitude. 

ActiveSG Football Academy Headcoaches - islandwide locations

For your convenience, there are seven training centres established across the island, so there’s always one near you.

Our programme is designed to give your child the opportunity to learn how to play football for up to three times a week, specifically on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

We understand that some children and youth may be involved in other sports and recreational activities during the week or would like to take things slowly. Hence, we are offering your child the flexibility to attend the programme once, twice or thrice each week.

Nevertheless, we strongly encourage our junior participants to gradually scale up their involvement in the programme to three times a week so that they can fully benefit from all lessons.
