Sportybots programs are delivered throughout Singapore by Sportybots Asia Pte Ltd who also operate Sports Lifestyle Initiatives Pte Ltd
Sportybots commenced in Australia in 2006 and was developed by Sportybots Founder Melinda Faull when she couldn’t find a multi-sports based program to enrol her 3 year old daughter.
Melinda wanted to help her daughter improve her balance and running and sports are great for assisting the development of Gross Motor Skills. Both children now actively participate in school and club sports and have benefited greatly from their participation in Sportybots classes.
Since then Sportybots has grown to be the leading program for pre-schoolers which are now enjoyed by children in many countries. We have given thousands of children the opportunity to develop basic skills through fun sports based play.
Sports Lifestyle Initiatives Pte Ltd (“SLI”) was established in 2005 to offer structured swimming programs to private, childcare and school students from all age groups, including adults. Over the years, we have developed into one of the largest swim schools in Singapore with about 1000 students at two country clubs, namely Admiral Country Club and Arena Country Club.
We have always been committed to deliver safe, excellent and happy students through our nurturing and fun programs; be it in swimming or golf. As we always emphasize -
“To inspire a passion for sports…. With our love, patience, fun and Early Childhood know-how”
