Personal Development of Athletes
By Ms. Regina Chan
Hong Kong's elite athletes are known for their commitment and hard work. In order to encourage and train more young people with the potential to compete for Hong Kong in the international sport arena, and to support the development of elite athletes in Hong Kong, we need to formulate a more systematic and comprehensive support scheme for them. To this end, enhanced educational and vocational development opportunities is essential and important to the personal development of athletes in order to promote whole-person development and life-long learning so that athletes can create personal success in sports as well as in life. The presentation will outline existing programmes and services provided to HKSI Scholarship athletes and explain why they are important and essential to the personal development of athletes.
