Immersing In Multi-Sports Fun
During the four-hour session, student-athletes were rostered to try out different sports based on their transferable skills. “I tried basketball, beach volleyball and bowling. My favourite sport was beach volleyball as it was something unique, and I don’t get to try it on a daily basis,” shared Secondary 3 netballer Wong Xuan Yi who enjoyed the activities as it allowed her to bond with her academy. Xuan Yi has also found the beach volleyball session useful as it allowed her to learn how she could use some of her netball skills. “I have a senior who does both netball and beach volleyball too. There are many transferable skills in both sports such as jumping and other technical aspects which can help me jump higher, an essential skill in a netball game,” said Xuan Yi.
Secondary 1 pencak silat exponent Mohammad Ridzqi Mohammad Fadzil who experienced the multi-sports event for the first time also found the session interesting and fun. “I tried wrestling, shooting and skateboarding, and I enjoyed skateboarding the most,” said Ridzqi.
