由玩玩下變做閃避球教練
凱旋:"畀人叫阿Sir真係好有成功感"

大約一年半前,凱旋獲社工邀請參加閃避球隊,當時他想:「唔係掛,閃避球都有隊!」 凱旋在好奇心驅使下抱住「去玩下」的心態加入。回想初次接觸時,凱旋覺得閃避球只是一個老少咸宜的遊戲,稱不上是球類運動。

其後,凱旋逐漸認識閃避球這項運動,發覺閃避球一點也不簡單,他說:「呢項運動要考策略、合作性、以及應變能力,原來自己對好多嘢係一無所知,就似一隻井底之蛙。」他變得很投入, 幾乎沒有缺席球隊每週的訓練,閃避球成為其生活一部分。

學習過程中總有挫折困難,當然都有成功及開心的時候。凱旋的隊伍曾經參加閃避球總會的聯賽,最後未嘗一勝,有幾場賽事更以20:0大比數慘敗,心中滿是挫敗感,幸好有社工及教練用心鼓勵,令他們重拾信心。之後,隊伍聯同龍創體育會參與北區閃避球公開賽,成功奪得季軍,對他們的付出給予一個肯定。

凱旋曾在中心教導小朋友玩閃避球,在摸索教導方法、溝通技巧時,令他處事變得成熟。在教導小朋友的過程中令他很滿足,「當被叫一聲『阿 Sir』時,嗰份感覺超滿足、超開心!」凱旋稱,教導青少年令他回想起當年的自己,很有感觸。對於青少年對他的認同,凱旋說:「真係好開心!」還滿載成功感。

閃避球發展在香港仍然比較緩慢,凱旋很想推廣閃避球,所以已考獲一級閃避球教練及裁判資格,希望日後可以有自己的學生。即使將來未能以閃避球教練作為職業,他也會視之為興趣堅持下去,希望有更多人玩這項運動,明白當中樂趣。

 

Becoming a dodge ball coach through fun engagement
Hoi Shuen, “It gives me great satisfaction when I heard them calling me Coach”

Hoi Shuen was invited by his social worker to join a dodge ball team in 2015. He doubted at first and said to himself, “Oh, is there really a team for dodge ball?”. Hoi Shuen thought that dodge ball was just a game instead of a sport, and he started to play dodge ball just out of curiosity and wanted to have fun.

After practicing for several times, Hoi Shuen found that dodge ball was not that simple. He said, “I was such a person with limited outlook. Playing dodge ball requires strategic thinking, co-operation and adaptation skills.” Then he became a dodge ball fan, attending practice almost every week and dodge ball became part of his life.

There are always difficulties and happy moments in learning process. His team participated in Hong Kong Dodge Ball Association’s league without winning a trophy. They were even greatly defeated and scored 0 in several competitions.

Being encouraged by the social worker and the coach, they finally regained confidence and won the third place in partnership with Dragon Innovation Athletic Association (D.I.A.A) at the Northern District Dodge ball Championship.

Through dodge ball coaching for young kids, Hoi Shuen found himself becoming more mature in mentoring and communicating. “It gives me great satisfaction when I heard them calling me Coach!” said he.

Coaching children and teenagers reminds Shuen of the days when he was young, he feels happy and satisfied when his work is recognised by those teenagers.

Hoi Shuen has a passion to promote Dodge ball in Hong Kong. He therefore studied a course and obtained the Coach and Adjudicator Qualification (Level 1). He hopes that one day he could have his own students. Though playing dodge ball may not be his future career, but he will hold on to this as a hobby and share with others the joy of playing this sports.

 

在香港培訓隊的選拔中,凱旋對肌耐力測試滿有信心,更取得了滿分。

In the selection of the Hong Kong training team, Hoi Shuen was confident to pass the muscle endurance test, and finally he made a full score.
