The CSS Softball team has been established for almost two years. We have regular practice on every Friday, friendly matches with different schools throughout the year. We have regular team activities to enhance our team spirits, such as game theory lessons and equipment repair sessions. Some teammates opted for additional Monday Night training at the Hong Kong Softball Association. I am blessed to be surrounded by a group of enthusiastic students who are passionate about this sport. I still remember the smiles on their faces whenever they accomplish difficult drills, such as throwing bases for 20 consecutive throws.
I am delighted with the improvement of everyone’s attitude as they become more responsible and mature. The team can now begin each practice without the help from coaches: led by our Team Captain Bosco Ko (F3 Bombax) and Vice Captain Jeffrey Sung (F2 Bombax). We also finish by reflecting our session in a circle, naming the MVP of the day and cheering for our accomplishment.
This year, we have participated in two competitions and managed to secure our first win. Throughout the games, our teammates displayed exemplary teamwork and tough mentality. Now with more than 20 teammates and 3 coaches (Mr. Ip, Mr. Chu and myself), the CSS Softball team are eager to take on more challenges in the coming years.
As the head coach, I hope that students who join this team can continue to improve on their techniques, build up team spirit and develop the sense of good sportsmanship and resilience to overcome difficulties.
Mr. Benny Wu
School Team Coach of Softball
