P.E. Taster Lesson: Online Basketball Course
During the pandemic, many students lacked exercise because of staying at home. In response to that, we held a live online basketball taster lesson on 6th May 2020 to teach students at-home exercises and sharpen their basketball skills with household items.
We were honoured to have former Hong Kong Basketball Team player Mr C.H. Cheung and current Hong Kong Basketball Team player Mr H.T. Lau as our hosts. Their clear instructions and demonstrations made it very easy to follow. Participants took the opportunity to raise questions about different techniques. Primary students of our neighbouring schools were invited to attend the class.
The course included techniques like ball drills, footwork, coordination, interval training, and agility ladders skills. It demonstrated ways to improve skills and fitness. It is hoped that students can integrate what they have learnt and keep practicing at home.
Mr Cheung Chi Ho is a former Hong Kong Basketball Team player. He played for many clubs, including Fukien Basketball Team. After retirement, he worked as a coach and leader of a team. He also appears on TV as sports host and commentator.
Mr Lau Hoi To is currently serving at the Hong Kong Basketball Team. He plays the centre position. He also plays for Fukien Basketball Team.
