Career and education support to athletes
By Ms. Amy Chan
Majority of the athletes in Hong Kong face tremendous social and economic pressure during the course of their competitive career. The fact that Hong Kong has a very thin sports culture makes it difficult for athletes to concentrate on the pursuit of sports excellence without having to worry about their education as well as career after sport. The Athlete Affairs Department well recognizes that the challenge confronting many athletes is how to maintain a balance between sport and the other aspects of their lives. This presentation will delineate our support services to the Scholarship athletes and to demonstrate how we achieve our aims in supporting our athletes in achieving the balance without compromising their sporting goals.
