Background of HomeTeamNS
HomeTeamNS is a non-profit Association set up to recognise the invaluable contributions of the Singapore Police Force (SPF) and Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) NSmen to the safety and security of the nation. A merger between the former Singapore Police Association for National Servicemen (SPANS) and Singapore Civil Defence Association for National Servicemen (CDANS), HomeTeamNS aims to create a shared environment for NSmen from both forces to foster better relations while working together. HomeTeamNS was officially launched by Mr Wong Kan Seng, former Minister for Home Affairs on 24 April 2005.
Following the merger between the two Associations, a new name, HomeTeamNS, was adopted. It reinforces the Home Team identity, and brings together NSmen from the SPF and SCDF, and their families closer to the larger Home Team community.
HomeTeamNS has a membership base of over 180,000. It has a total of five clubhouses and provides a platform for NSmen to network and build bonds through sports and social activities. The clubhouses are located at Balestier, Bukit Batok, Chinatown, Sembawang and Tampines. They are equipped with sports and recreational facilities such as gymnasiums and chalets, food and beverage establishments, and child-friendly venues such as water-playgrounds and enrichment centres to bring together NSmen and their families closer to the larger Home Team community.
Our New Logo
The new HomeTeamNS logo reflects the dynamism and core values that bind our Singapore Police Force (SPF) and Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) NSmen. The two letters “M” form the foundation of a strong pyramid which exemplifies the solidarity and camaraderie among NSmen from both forces. The leaning of the two letters towards each other is symbolic of the close-knitted cooperation and team spirit. In addition to the union of orange and blue colours, the letter ‘”T” reflects unity as well as harmony between SPF and SCDF NSmen to ensure a safe and secured Singapore. The refreshed logo injects new vigour to bring pride to Home Team NSmen and their families.

Our Brand Values
The new logo is based on five key attributes that were solicited from the NSmen on how they envisage the Association to be – a place for bonding, fun-filled activities, personal development, exclusive membership privileges, and a celebration of NS contributions.
