Basketball, Penang & Selangor, Malaysia

Basketball war is almost upon us in our galaxy.

3 groups of people (basketball warriors, their teachers and their parents) were made to travel up north to our tree-lined neighbour using their ringgits (at a ratio of 3:1) to battle against their basketball teams within 5 days out of 1 week.

The force of 3 was never far from us. The very first day we experienced a hotel room throwing 2 of our warriors out of their rooms, a wallet that decided to stay on the transport (despite the alleged good memory of our warrior) and a lift that refused to accept 3 more boys than it was programmed to do.

Armed with 3 square meals a day (with some power-hungry warriors taking more than 3 bowls of rice a meal), we measured up against the various teams that were thrown at us. Our junior warriors were also given their share of battles and proved themselves worthy of succession.

With much high spirits and determination, the warriors conquered theme parks, shopping centres, restaurants and fast food joints.

Mission accomplished, our warriors returned home to face their last obstacle to conquer- laundry.

日期:二零一五年十二月八日至十四日
起因:四十二颗为篮球所牵引跳动的心
过程:十四个英姿飒爽的女生 + 二十一个身手利落的男生 + 两个领队老师 + 一个教练 + 三个爸爸 + 一个妈妈 + 一个家庭 + 七天六夜 + 十场友谊赛 = 意犹未尽的美好旅程和获益不浅的篮球集训。

心得1:马来西亚篮球队打球的方式与新加坡球队很不一样,他们球速较快,而且也很有力。我们千里迢迢去到那里,碰到了十分硬朗的碰撞与对抗,这是前所未有的经验。

心得2:男女队各五场友谊赛,让我们意识到必须加强在场上的沟通,否则防守一定会失败。

心得3:教练说,篮球是越打越辣。这一次去到马来西亚碰到那么强劲的对手,在他们的紧逼防守和犀利进攻下,我们自己好像也变得更辣了。

结果:这七天六夜下来,我们的球艺慢慢一点一点地进步了,彼此的默契也越来越好了。

结论:这次的训练之旅是个很好的学习机会。重要的是,我们每年要都去一次。
