There’s no I in TEAM
Quite often, the word ‘team’ is used so much that people forget the real meaning of a team. Many a times, the extend in which teamwork is taught has been taken for granted.
The members of Chung Hua Middle School Kuala Belait’s (CHMSKB) Badminton Team are constantly taught the discipline of a team. To them, a team is not only for the mere purpose of going for competitions. As a team, they go for training together; drills, push-ups, drills, running, drills, sit-ups, drills and more drills, all the hardship they endure together. The teamwork does not end there, as they are taught to ensure they clean up training venue, no matter where, is cleaned up together before anyone of them can go home; nets, poles, used shuttlecocks, empty bottles are all kept away.
At the end of the day, they go home together, tired and exhausted, each of them pondering why they bother to go through all that torture, but all that thought is washed away by the the sense of belonging that they have for each other in a team.
Come competition day, they are excited and nervous, but never scared, because they know that they have each other’s back no matter what the outcome is. Sharing is caring, hence their tears of joy and tears of sadness are shared together.
The recent competition organized by BSRC (Brunei Shell Recreation Club) Badminton Section has allowed the players of Chung Hua KB the chance to shine, not only in terms of their badminton skills, but more importantly, their teamwork.
It is with the genuine teamwork that the Chung Hua KB team has displayed that won them the trophy for the BEST TEAM SPIRIT award.
Lastly, to the people who must not be left out, without which all these display of teamwork, competitive spirit and togetherness would not have been possible; well done to the BSRC Badminton Section committee members!
