Kyrie Irving Basketball Tour 2014 – LTFC Visit Programme

Our school was invited by Nike to participate in the Kyrie Irving Basketball Tour 2014 – LTFC Visit Programme on the 10th June 2014. Kyrie Irving, point guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the Most Valuable Player of 2014 NBA All-Star Game, has visited our school to demonstrate basketball tricks and train our school basketball team.

The event has also received great support from our school Supervisor, Dr. Lam Tai Fai; our school managers including Prof. Chung Pak Kwong, Mr Alex Wong and our Parent Manager, Ms Jenny Miu, as well as 3 senior players from the South China Athletic Association (SCAA) Basketball Team. Before the training started, Mr. Irving spoke to our teachers and students about his inspiration from his father to play professional basketball after he grew up. Then, he held a point guard training session with LTFC Basketball Team students and showed his amazing ball handling skills with crossover dribbling techniques. Two students from our school’s basketball team were also selected to play a shooting game with Mr. Irving after training.

It was the first time for an NBA star player to visit LTFC and it has certainly provided a valuable opportunity for our students to learn from Mr. Irving and the SCAA basketball players with their skills, techniques and team spirit. In the future, our school would continue to promote sports culture to our students through such activities and strengthen the training of our student athletes in different sports for better development.
