The National Registry of Coaches (NROC) was launched in 2003 to raise the standard and professionalism of sports coaching in Singapore. It aims to ensure that coaches meet baseline qualifications, that coaches continue to practise and improve, and that coaches provide a safe environment for their athletes. Today, there are over 6,100 coaches listed across 89 sports in the NROC and coaches can choose to publish their profile via an online public database called "Find a Coach".
*Certificates which are deemed as its equivalent are SG-Coach Theory Level 1 Certificate which includes the VPS module, National Standards in Youth Sports for Coaching in Singapore Schools Certificate and Certificate of Attendance for Building Capacity of Coaches and Instructors (BCCI) Workshop.
What is Provisional Membership?
Sport Singapore introduced the provisional membership category from Jan 2017. The provisional membership allows existing and aspiring sport coaches to participate in academic, educational and professional development activities to improve their coaching practice as they work toward completing all requirements of full NROC membership.
Over a 3-year provisional membership period, they could be given priority enrolment into various coaching courses and activities organised by Sport Singapore, their respective National Sports Association and other organisations. The aim is to prepare them to obtain the necessary certification to become a full member within the NROC and to stay current in the practice of sport coaching as a profession.
Get set for coaching events across Singapore. From the SG Coach Programmes, Coaching E-workshops and Coaching Clinics to the CoachSG Conference, CoachSG has something for everyone.
NROC coaches who maintain an Active membership, and who choose to have their profiles published, would be listed on our myActiveSG website called “Find a Coach”. Click on “Find A Coach” below to head over!
* Please note that NROC has stopped issuing physical membership cards since Apr 2020.
