At Shangri-La, we recognize the importance of good teamwork. In China, Shangri-La Hotel, Ningbo recognized the efforts of a local children’s basketball team and wanted to help improve their teamwork and skills.
In October 2016, the Ling Feng Migrant Workers’ Children School established its first all-female basketball team. In May 2017, the team participated in its first league tournament. While the team did not place, the team was determined to improve for the next season.
To help the team improve, Shangri-La Hotel, Ningbo sponsored a four-day basketball camp. From August 20 to 24, Coach Chuntao Chai, a professional basketball coach from Ningbo Dahongying Institute, helped the players improve their ball handling skills, agility, and promote teamwork on and off the court.
To add a competitive edge, Coach Chai arranged two days of scrimmages with a local male basketball team from Haishu Public Primary School. While the girls did not win, they learned the values of trying their best and having fun while doing it.
Good luck to the Ling Feng Migrant Workers’ Children School female basketball team during the autumn league!
