Thrill seekers, adrenaline junkies and kids with just too much energy we hope you’re listening, ‘cause we’ve got a guide you’re going to love. Move over tennis and soccer, we’re pushing the envelope with some adventure sports (don’t worry, there’s nothing really dangerous)! Let’s go!

 

WATER POLO

28 Degrees Aquatic

Former national water polo player, Ng Ker Wei, teaches kids everything he knows, with the Flippa Ball Fun Play programme – a modified junior version of water polo that teaches youngsters the basics. Absolute beginners (from 6 years of age) start off learning Flippa Ball, before progressing into the fully-fledged competitive water polo training programmes. Classes are designed to develop water confidence, build teamwork skills, and be a bit of fun too!

PARKOUR

A2 Movements

Be the hippest mama in town by taking your munchkins to Kids Parkour Training each Sunday at SMU Big Steps. For kiddos aged 5 to 13 years, the programme teaches the techniques and principles of Parkour (a discipline that teaches peeps to move quickly and efficiently through the environment using only their bodies and surroundings to propel themselves – it’s kinda awesome). Definitely something different to try, Parkour is particularly useful for developing agility and coordination in children (as well as being a bit of non-trad fun!).

ICE SKATING

Kallang Ice World

Littlies as young as 6 years old can get out on the ice and learn to ice-skate in the tropics! Ice World at Kallang Leisure Centre offers private and group lessons, for everyone from beginners to more advanced students. Mini ice skaters (6 to 21 years) can even join the “Too Cool for School” June holiday camps – it’s a 2-day hands-on, ice skating camp (with plenty of fun and games!).

Tel: (+65) 6348 1123

Skate Star at The Rink

Singapore’s only national learn-to-skate programme, Skate Star aims to cultivate the sport of ice-skating (tough gig we know!). The multi-level programme teaches the fundamentals of ice-skating through a progression of skills that remains fun, challenging and rewarding for littlies. Developed by the Singapore Ice Skating Association, Skate Star is available at The Rink at JCube, for those aged 6 years and above.

Sassy Mama Tip: for junior skaters who already know how to tear up the ice like a pro, head to the 600 square metre skating rink at the Marina Bay Shoppes ($7 per hour for adults, $6 per hour for children aged 5-11years including skate hire).

FLYING TRAPEZE

Flying Trapeze Sentosa

Fancy sending your little ones flying through the air with the greatest of ease? Well, unfortunately we’re not talking about shooting them out of a canon, but you can head towards the flying trapeze on Sentosa and unleash their inner circus star. Preschoolers (as young as 4!) can try out the trapeze, with instructors available to give timid littlies a helping hand. Best part here is that they also do kid’s birthday parties – with catering by the fabulous Trapizza.

Tel: (+65) 6275 0100

 

ROCK CLIMBING

The Rock School

Aimed at mini mountaineers from as young as 4 years old, the Fun Climb programme helps first-timers get climbing in a fun and safe environment. Focusing on teaching basic climbing techniques, graduates can progress into the Step Up programme, an in-depth structured class that furthers climbing skills through games and activities. We love that even mama can get in on the action and join a Double Up class (a parent/child accompanied rock-climbing class)… Just don’t look down mama!

Bedok Community Centre, 850 New Upper Changi Road, Singapore 467352
Tel: (+65) 6242 2106

Kinetics Climbing

Little ones will learn how to use their hands and feet to climb safely, whilst being taught within a guided environment (parents are even encouraged to join in). Those needing more of a challenge can also sign up for the Rugrats Climbing Team (4 to 7 years olds) or Kinetics Kids Climbing Team (7 to 13 year olds).

OnSight Climbing

CABLE SKIING AND WAKE BOARDING

Ski360°

Daredevils needing a challenge can sign up for the beginner’s 5-session cable skiing and wakeboarding course – kids need to be at least 7 years old and able to swim 50m unaccompanied – and learn the fundamentals of how to wakeboard. Lessons are tailored to each child’s skill level – they’ll be standing up on a board and cruising the lake (and maybe even doing a trick or two) in no time at all. Be still our beating hearts…

FLYING FOX

Mega Zip

Send the kiddies hurtling down the 450m long (and 75m high) flying fox at the Mega Zip Adventure Park and banish their fear of heights forever (well you can try!). Adrenaline junkies will get a thrill going down the speedy zip from the heights of Imbiah Hill to the beach of Fox Finish Point – not to mention the fab views over Sentosa as well. Leave the tinies at home though as this one is for kids at least 12ocm in height and 30kg.

ADVENTURE COURSE

Forest Adventure

Little monkeys will love the kids’ adventure course, where they can swing, climb, and trapeze their way through the treetops of Bedok Reservoir Park. The kids’ course has 16 obstacles to conquer and ends with a 67-metre zip line, and is perfect for hyper youngsters (aged 5 to 10) to have a bit of fun whilst challenging themselves in the process.

Climb Max

The Mini Monkeys Course is the ideal adventure for littlies aged 2 to 7 years. This mini-ropes course will have active bunnies climbing and swinging their way across Sentosa beach, as they burn off that energy! Based on the ClimbMax adventure ropes course – take note of this one too mama, it’s fab for older ones needing a physical challenge – the mini monkeys course is the smaller version of the original.

KAYAKING

X-Current Sports

All in the name of family bonding (of course!) spend an afternoon learning kayaking and water safety skills with your sprogs in the Family Fun Kayaking Class at the Kallang Water Sports Centre.

Yusheng or Lo Hei is the traditional Prosperity toss you do with family and friends at Chinese New Year. Toss it high for extra luck! Kids have a good giggle when mummy needs to scrape it off the ceiling.⠀
