年齡:                               18 (「童夢同行」兒童及青少年生命導向計劃受助者)

故事分享: 

人人都叫我昌記,我係2015開始就參加田家炳關愛家庭中心舉辦嘅「童夢同行」兒童及青少年生命導向計劃。係計劃裡面,我學習到培養建立儲蓄金錢及非金錢資本的習慣,以實踐目標及夢想。

 

我一向都熱愛足球及跆拳道,我係計劃裡面,比我第一次接觸到花式足球(Freestyle

Football),等我可以強化自己嘅興趣及潛能,為訂立目標夢想作更佳準備。此外,訓練既可強化身體靈活度,亦有助我係一般足球比賽中以簡單的花式控球,提升足球技術。

 

整個計劃更改變我對足球一般傳統模式的固有看法,原來只要以創新的態度,可將足球糅合舞蹈元素演變成花式足球。藉此啟發我發揮創意。加上中心不斷鼓勵我嘗試,大膽將足球及跆拳糅合成為「跆拳足球」,希望可運用個人的強項創立屬於自己的招式,嘗試以新模式推廣對一般人來說較刻板的跆拳運動,吸引更多年青人參與及認識。

故事分享: 

我和好友阿聰都是2015年加入中心的足球訓練班,也是因為很喜歡足球而加入。在足球訓練班除了學會足球技術外,更重要的是學習正學的價值觀。最初加入足球隊時,學習態度並不好,例如失球時不追波,甚至會犯規。當時隊友都會有所埋怨,但教練杰SIR並沒有放棄我。更加支持我、教導我應該怎樣做。又記起在第一年的對外比賽,我們慘敗而回。隊友們都很氣餒,但中心職員及教練都鼓勵我們,令我們重拾練習的信心。往後的訓練,教練加強了戰術的培訓。結果在今年的比賽,我們可一嘗勝利的快感。所以,很感激中心的足球訓練班令我們有所成長;除了學習球技外,更可以學習做人態度。

年齡:             14

故事分享: 

我是中心地壺球班組的學員,學習地壺球運動是一個非常特別的經驗;因為地壺球比賽不設裁判,比賽結果需由參賽隊伍雙方協議及共同作決定,所以過程中我們學習到「誠實、自律及尊重」的態度。從前我是一個計較輸贏的人,這項運動讓我明白到成敗得失不是最重要的事,懂尊重自律有風度的人才是別人眼中真正的赢家,只要緊記著這句說話去比賽,就算到最後输了,也能成為我生活上進步的動力。我很感激保良局給予我這個寶貴的學習機會,未來我會繼續努力學習,以成為一個地壺球導師為目標,回饋社會。
