School Based Sports for Life Fitness Assessment 2018

INFORMATION ON SCHOOL BASED SPORTS FOR LIFE FITNESS ASSESSMENT (WALK OR RUN TEST)

1. About
School based Sports for Life (SFL) is a fitness assessment programme organised by school’s own PE department or Staff Welfare Committee (SWC). Usually, these activities are initiated by the School’s SWC team to encourage their staff to keep fit and healthy and be role models to students.

By allowing schools to have this activity, it would facilitate our officers to take test at their own school instead of joining MESRC centralised test which are usually conducted about 8 times yearly at different zones (JCs school tracks) on Saturdays from 7.30am to 9.30am.

2. Requirement
A minimum of 30 participants are required for schools to conduct their own sports for life fitness assessment. A neutral person (MESRC’s appointed invigilator) will be deployed to the school. Schools should inform MESRC via email to [email protected] to send request form for invigilator. Please refer to Annex A for the request form for MESRC Invigilator.

If Schools does not have their own heart rate devices, they need to book with MESRC by indicating in the request form.

Remarks: We have limited devices available to loan out to Schools. If the devices are not available, Schools may need to loan these devices from other Schools. The devices will be used to measure the heart rate for the walk test only. The ratio is 1 device for 4 pax.

3. Type of Tests
Participants may choose to take either Run test or Walk test.
