Safe Management Measures (updated as of 27 Sep 2021)

Sports SG has, in accordance with the Multi-Ministry Taskforce directives, announced a series of updates to the safe management measures that are applicable to the Sports and Fitness industry during the stabilisation phase from 27 September 2021 to 24 October 2021.  The team at ISA has also made changes to our operations to ensure that all our classes maintain the same high quality of delivery, without compromising on the safety of our students and lecturers.  Amongst other things:

  • Virtual live classes – a new innovation at ISA, we are now conducting most of our classes with physical component via the ‘virtual live’ format.  This allows us to maintain social distancing, adhere to the prevailing safe management measures, while not compromising on quality!
  • For classes requiring equipment, we will be providing each pair (or each student) with their own personal set of equipment for use throughout the entire lesson.  This will minimise concerns with cross-contamination
  • We have also worked hard to increase capacity without decreasing quality of education – the virtual live format has allowed us to extend our reach – you can find more locations to attend our classes without compromising on quality of teaching!
  • More in-house online programmes – we have also invested in creating online learning materials that each of our students can view and review at their own convenience and comfort

Apart from the above, we have also adhered to all other prevailing safe management guidelines pertaining to our staff and instructors to ensure the safety of all students and staff.  Let’s work hand in hand to protect lives while enjoying ISA’s high-quality education programmes!
