Xu Fan became the first student admitted to the China Normal University in the China Table Tennis Academy of Shanghai Sport University with the first place in the comprehensive sports specialties. She is determined to be an excellent teacher and share her professional knowledge and sports experience with more student athletes. In Guoping, 16-year-old Chen Yi is sweating in training. She is the first athlete sent by the China Table Tennis Academy to the national team.
In 2020, China Table Tennis Academy will usher in ten years of establishment. Ten years of trees, 100 years of trees, China Table Tennis Academy is taking the lead on the road of integrating sports and education, and it is bearing fruit.
A few days ago, the State Council Information Office held a press conference to interpret the "Opinions on Deepening the Integration of Sports and Education to Promote the Healthy Development of Adolescents" (hereinafter referred to as the "Opinions") jointly issued by the State Sports General Administration and the Ministry of Education on September 21- "Teaching integration" is not simply the addition of resources.
How to train student athletes and solve the contradiction between learning and training? The ten-year exploration road of China Table Tennis Academy may be worth learning.
Learning and training are not two parallel lines
Xu Fan is from Suzhou. He was selected for the Jiangsu Provincial Team, but chose to come to Shanghai. "Athletes must be educated. Look at the national table tennis team captain Ma Long, who can give interviews in English fluently. If you give up learning from an early age, you will have problems with simple social interaction in the future." Xu Fan said.
Choosing the Chinese Table Tennis Academy, Xu Fan’s parents valued the high-quality school resources here. The Chinese Table Tennis Academy and the Yangpu District Education Bureau cooperated to provide children with table tennis expertise in a "one-stop" study, which solved the worries of studying. Xu Fan spent his school days in World Road Primary School and Tongji No. 2 Middle School in Yangpu District.
What made Xu Fan most memorable was that when he was 12 years old, the national team organized a training camp, and Dean Shi Zhihao strongly recommended Xu Fan to participate. The elimination rate of the national team is quite high, but his father Xu Wei is very sure, "If she can go to the national team, we will definitely support it, but if she can't make it, our parents are confident. Anyway, the cultural performance is not bad and the way out will not be bad."
During the days when he was playing ball on the beach and reading books, Xu Fan gradually became clear about his goal. China Normal University is her favorite school. She hopes to train more children who are good at sports and good at school.
16-year-old Chen Yizheng youth, in her opinion, entered the national team, playing and reading with both hands. Last month, Chen Yi broke into the top 16 women's singles and was selected for the national first team at the National Table Tennis Tokyo Olympic Games. In the dormitory, thick textbooks are stacked on the table. After training, Chen Yi self-study high school courses. Chen Yi has set a goal: to take the college entrance examination two years later, and strive for both playing and learning.
"My mother has instilled a philosophy in me since I was young. Table tennis is a skill, but one day I will retire. She hopes that I have a good knowledge reserve and become a useful material when I step into the society in the future." In the eyes of the students, she is a schoolmaster. She spends half of her time on table tennis training, and her results are still among the best.
Ten years of juvenile class to solve the contradiction between learning and training
In 2010, the China Table Tennis Academy, jointly established by the Shanghai Municipal People’s Government and the State Sports General Administration, was established in the Shanghai Institute of Physical Education. In 2011, the China Table Tennis Academy formally established a junior class, consisting of a group of ages spanning elementary schools, junior high schools, and high schools. It is composed of students who are talented and love to play table tennis.
The word "student" here is of extraordinary significance, and it is also the characteristic of the juvenile class: it is intended to cultivate outstanding student athletes and establish a new model of integration of sports and education. The students in the Junior Class are the "Little Erlang" who goes to school with their schoolbags in the morning, and the ping-pong teenager who is sweating in the training hall in the afternoon.
Traditional athletes are training all day, lacking cultural education, but how do student athletes balance learning and training on campus? This is the problem of the integration of sports and education, and the core is the contradiction between learning and training. China Table Tennis Academy has discovered during ten years of exploration that the key to solving the contradiction between learning and training lies in scientific training.
According to Shi Zhihao, in the ten years since the establishment of the Youth Class of the China Table Tennis Academy, no student has been eliminated and all of them have been promoted to universities. "Perhaps they should be eliminated from the perspective of professional skills, but their primary status is a student. They can't make a professional team, but they can have a good way out by reading books." On the path of professional development, China Ping Pong was established for ten years. The hospital also ushered in the harvest season. Three players were selected for the Shanghai team and one for the national team.
The field is life, and the student coaches grow up
Shi Zhihao has many titles: former world champion, ITTF Vice President, Vice President of Shanghai Sports Academy, Dean of China Table Tennis Academy. When he came to the China Table Tennis Academy, the leader of the General Administration of Sports once asked him: "I don't want you to follow the old path of the system, but I hope you can cultivate a literate table tennis player."
At the beginning, some parents always asked Shi Zhihao: "Does my child have a future?" Shi Zhihao always said: "For such a small child, who can pack a vote and say that he can become a world champion in the future?" He often tells his parents: "You When my child comes to China Table Tennis Academy, he is first a student and can play table tennis."
Whether in training or in class, Shi Zhihao has always instilled the idea that the field is life: "Not everyone can become a champion on the field. First of all, you must have the courage to stand on the field and learn to face failures in order to live a life. The strong."
In the interpretation of the "Opinions", Li Jianming, deputy director of the State Sports General Administration, stated that the integration of sports and education is not only a simple addition of the resources of the two departments of sports and education, but also refers to the full value, function and purpose of sports and education. Integration, together acting on the growth and development of young people.
After training Ding Ning into a Grand Slam, Chen Bin came to China Table Tennis Academy as a professor at the end of 2017. He has been immersed in professional teams for decades, and he feels that the cultural qualities of athletes and coaches are generally lacking. "How do coaches communicate when athletes are emotional? How to guide when they are not playing well? Both athletes and coaches need to have cultural background, need to have a comprehensive understanding of things, and need to have the ability to think logically." Chen Bin now Self-edited textbooks for the sports training major of the China Table Tennis Academy, "Before we were all people who traveled thousands of miles, now we have to read thousands of books."
Different from other comprehensive universities, there is a "technical course" in the courses of the China Table Tennis Academy, which is professional and technical training. "Transforming to a university professor, I hope to pass on my professional knowledge to more people, and then they can nurture more people." Chen Bin said.
China Table Tennis Academy is like a "dream base", it cares for the beautiful and simple dreams of table tennis teenagers, teaches them how to be strong in life, and promotes school sports to realize the concept of comprehensive education. Our reporter Tao Xingying
