The SFCCA Youth Sports Festival was launched in 2013 to promote active living in Singapore whilst enhancing the communication and forging friendships among the youths from various communities. This promotes the holistic development of the youth in the community and strengthens the cooperation among SFCCA member associations. This year, the SFCCA Sports Festival is jointly organized by Singapore Chin Kang Huay Kuan, Foo Clan Association, Singapore Hainan Hwee Kuan, and Singapore Jiangsu Association, and co-organized by Singapore Kwangtung Hui Kuan and Singapore Ann Kway Association. The event is also supported by the National Integration Council.
In his speech, Mr. Zhou Zhao Chen, the chairman of the SFCCA Youth Committee mentioned that the “SFCCA Youth Festival is not only an event that promotes bonding among the youths but also a platform to promote social harmony.”
He also emphasized that youths are the backbone of the nation, and their physical and emotional well-being are salient. Hence, SFCCA will continue to extend the reach of the Youth Festival in the future and encourage the youth to stay active and develop a healthier society.
