Youth Matters
Sporting spirit
Sporting spirit
All those at the Rio Olympics had to start somewhere! Athletic and sporting skills can be developed at a young age and in an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment and that is exactly what the Federation is doing.

At this year's finale to the HKFYG Community Team Sports Project at the Hong Kong Sports Institute, snooker player, Ng On-yee and squash player, Annie Au, shared their experience of success and difficulties. All this is part of encouraging young people to get involved in team sports and develop team spirit.

With more of the same to come next year, the Federation is showing its commitment to encourage young athletes to do their best and who knows, maybe one day, they'll be at the Olympic games!

Partner our Community Team Sports Project and let them shine!
