9. Message From Football Team Captain
 

唔知你哋有冇同樣嘅經驗:

- 每次踢友誼賽嘅時候,每個人都各自為政,落到場就踢天才波,就算贏咗波都索然無味。

- 每次比賽嘅隊友都唔同,完全建立唔到默契。

- 又或者攞住個波嘅時候,全隊十個人都叫你交比佢,自己都唔知點做好。

- 就算參加左聯賽,因為本身唔係一線球員,比賽嘅時間唔足夠,落到場都患得患失。

- 隨着年紀越來越大,唔想再踢D跑狗波,想用個波用得好啲。

所以我想組織一隊波,去參加出邊啲聯賽,目的唔係要贏冠軍,而係想透過比賽去提升個人同埋整體嘅實力。

唔想好似以前咁亂咁踢,希望可以大家夾錢請教練每個禮拜去練波,透過持續嘅訓練同埋比賽,提升個人技術同埋團隊嘅意識。

為左確保有足夠嘅人數參賽同埋唔想影響大家出場比賽嘅時間,暫定招攬嘅人數上限係25人。同埋為咗確保陣容嘅穩定性,任何同學想中途加入都要等有人退隊才可以加入。

這是一個持續發展計劃,目標唔係一年或者兩年,而係持續不斷咁樣發展落去,希望可以提升我哋對足球嘅熱誠,同埋延長我哋嘅足球壽命。

希望各位同學踴躍參加,如果參加人數未能達標,歡迎各位同學介紹有相同理念嘅朋友嚟參加。

擬定參加的聯賽 :半超週中聯賽

年齡層 : 老、中、青都歡迎

費用 : $500-$700/ 月

訓練次數 : 每週一次

以上只係初步構想,希望各位可以提供意見。

有興趣參加嘅同學可以PM Alan Law (1984) at 9269 2296.
