How do our students benefit?
Sportsmanship attributes such as perseverance and teamwork through our sports programmes
A sense of charity through our learning experience activities
Social equality through mentorship and better life opportunities
How do we measure our impact?
Each student are assessed twice during the programme. The main tool is a well-designed questionnaire. In addition to student self-evaluation, coaches, parents and relevant staff members also take part in evaluating students’ performance. After analyzing data collected, we discuss with coaches and make necessary adjustments so as to help students achieve the intended learning outcomes. Besides the evaluation of sportsmanship qualities, students have to complete an evaluation questionnaire after each learning experience activity, to ensure that they understand certain qualities such as sense of charity.
Students and parents also attend an exit interview at the end of the training programme, during which we summarize our students’ learning achievements, provide constructive feedback and assist them in setting realistic goals for their future development.
The system has been developed with credible Human Resource experts, and the attributes that we track include:
2018-19 New Assessment Model

In 2018, we will be introducing this new model to all of our upcoming classes. STEPS! Model measures six key qualities covering Sportsmanship Qualities, Team Skills, Emotional Skills, Physical Health, Social Capital and Intellectual Development (for ADHD students only).
How does success look like?
Our programmes have given our students a unique opportunity to grow up and created inspiring stories.
Here are 2 of them:
Running is in general seen as an individual sports, but our RUN Inspires! students have proven the contrary. Distance running is about determination and perseverance, and without the support and inspiration from your teammates, one can hardly reach the finishing line.
They have also showed us that running is not only a race for medals, but a race for improvements and breakthroughs. Everyone can be a winner as far as they beat their previous self.
Words from students － Bee
“Running has greatly improved my perseverance. I used to just play video games but now long distance running has become my favourite pastime. I now run more than 30km when I get the chance. I also love the camaraderie I have developed with my running mates.“
WOMEN’S FOOTBALL Inspires!
Our little girls in WOMEN’S FOOTBALL Inspires! brave Hong Kong gender stereotypes by taking part in this sport. Their families feel indifferent and their classmates may even joke about them playing what is seen as a men’s sport.
Our class has provided a platform to face obstacles with a surprisingly positive attitude. They have trained increasingly harder to get better results in competitions so to prove Women’s Football is also worthy of respect.
Words from student － Cai
“I like playing football, because I enjoy playing in competitions with my friends. However, boys in our school always say that we are terrible. I will someday win competitions to prove them wrong!
My mom wants me to learn dancing instead, but I hope to keep on playing football until this course finished at least.”
