About

InspiringHK Sports Foundation is a registered charity (IR No. 91/12703) in Hong Kong offering 2-year professional sports programmes to underprivileged youth for free. Its sports programmes include hockey, fencing and tennis, which are normally described as middle class.Its quality training is marked by:
  1. Coaches that are former or current Hong Kong team sportsmen
  2. Free professional sports equipment and free enrolment in competitions
  3. Learning activities such as excursions to country parks for students of selected courses, complementing sports activities.
It aims to achieve 3 things:
  1. Create a level playing field for underprivileged youth to take part in sports
  2. Develop positive attributes such as teamwork and perseverance in underprivileged youth so they will have a better chance to succeed in life
  3. Connect different sectors in society to the underprivileged and thereby enhance mutual understanding.

What we do

InspiringHK Sports Foundation is a charity founded in Oct 2013. We see the lack of social upward mobility as the greatest challenge facing underprivileged youths in Hong Kong. To give them a lift, we organise sports courses and extra-curricular learning activities to equip them with sportsmanship attributes such as self-confidence and perseverance.We believe these attributes will unleash their potential, and give them a better chance of succeeding in life.

Our 2-year commitment to well-rounded development

One swallow does not make a summer; nor does one day. Therefore we nurture our students over 2 years.All of them enjoy 2 years of sports training taught by former or current Hong Kong team sportsmen, who are naturally role models for them to develop skills and attributes of sportsmanship.Students in secondary school are also assigned to learning activities including elderly centre visits and outward-bound training sessions. We believe these will broaden their experience and help them understand what it means to become a socially responsible person.On top of all the activities, we also assign them to mentors, who are all young professionals and volunteers, to guide them and expand their network.

From sports classes to enrolling in competitions – all free

Our sports courses include those that only the ‘middle class’ can afford, such as fencing and hockey. Our other classes are running, dancing, women’s football and rope-skipping. Our choice of sports is still expanding, with our tennis class starting in May 2015.We also provide free equipment and pay for enrolment in competitions, which greatly help students develop sportsmanship.And of course, the extra-curricular learning activities and assignment to mentors are free.

關於

凝動體育基金是香港註冊慈善機構(稅務局編號:91/12703),致力為低收入家庭的青少年提供兩年免費體育課程。基金現時在香港各區有大約100名學生參與爵士舞蹈、曲棍球及女子足球等運動,並提供裝備及贊助公開比賽費用,大部份課程皆由現任或前香港隊成員執教。此外,基金還提供全人學習經歷,如獨居老人探訪和配對個人導師。凝動體育基金的宗旨是:
  1. 凝動相信年輕人需要體育精神的正能量。體育訓練能提升信心、毅力和團隊精神,繼而激發潛能。
  2. 凝動相信公競爭的重要。通過提供優質的體育活動,幫助低收入家庭的年青人認清個人目標,堅定不移地實踐理想。
  3. 凝動相信社會責任是公民義務。我們凝聚低收入社區群體,協助他們與社會各界包括政府、工商學界及公共團體聯繫,以促進社會了解低收入家庭的處景和推動社會發展。

我們是誰

凝動香港體育基金是一個於2013年10月成立的慈善團體。我們觀察到香港貧基層年青人現今面對的最大困難是欠缺在社會向上流動的機會。為了幫助他們,我們舉辦體育課程及學習經歷活動,從而協助他們建立自信和及培養毅力等體育精神。我們相信這些體育精神能使他們發揮潛能,並有機會擁有成功的人生。

我們的承諾-兩年的全面發展

只憑短時期的訓練,並不足以下判斷。因此,我們決定用兩年時間來培訓學員。所有兩年體育課程均由前任或現任香港代表隊運動員教授,教練們亦成為了學員們發展技能和體育精神的好榜樣。我們亦安排中學生接觸不同的學習活動,包括老人中心探訪及拓展訓練課程等。我們相信這些活動能擴闊學員的眼界,並幫助他們明白如何成為一個對社會負責的年青人。此外,我們亦會分配個人導師給中學生。所有導師都是年輕的專業人士和志願者,籍此引導學員及擴大他們的生活圈子。

所有體育課程及比賽費用全免

我們的體育課程包括一些只有「中產階級」才能負擔的運動,例如劍擊和曲棍球。另外,我們的體育課程還包括跑步、舞蹈、女子足球和花式跳繩。我們的體育課程仍在不斷增加,而最新的網球班亦已於2015年5月開始。為了協助學員的體育發展,我們還會免費提供裝備和支付比賽費用。另外,相關的課外學習活動及分配個人導師也是免費的。
