Under the pressure of competing against the defending champion, our first inning was unfavorable with a score of 0:6. We thought the children would be depressed but they managed to adjust their mindset and got back into the match with full enthusiasm and confidence. In the second inning, they defeated our opponent by 6:0. From then on, they played better and better and won the first game.

在首战迎战上届冠军的压力下,我们第一局出师不利,6:0大比分落后,本以为孩子们会就此一蹶不振,没想到他们很快调整心态,以饱满的热情和自信再次投入赛场,第二局在强大的压力下以6:0击退对方,自此到第三局、第四局,打得越来越得心应手,首战告捷。


In the following games, there were faults and unfavorable situations, but the children were able to turn things around. They encouraged each other on the court; they worked together when they lost points; they listened to the coach to make adjustment…

接下来的几场比赛中,有失误,也有短暂的失利,但孩子们很快就能扭转局面,化解危机。他们相互鼓励,在赛场上响亮地呐喊着“玮希,加油”;他们分工协作,当形势发生变化时,用清晰的思路快速理解教练的排兵布阵,调整战队,以迅雷不及掩耳之势,给对方无缓冲之机。


These children, who seem too relaxed during their regular training, devoted themselves to the match and spared no pains to win it. Perhaps that is the mystery of “Learning through Play” – when playing, they are motivated to seek knowledge, to communicate with others, to learn and to explore. In turn, the smooth communication helps to develop sports skills and cultivate team spirit.

这群孩子,平时训练时,也许有点不在状态,甚至有点吊儿郎当,可是在赛场上时,仍能全心投入、全力以赴。也许这就是“在玩中学,在学中玩”的奥秘吧:在“玩”中,他们激发了求知的动力,增进了交流,不知不觉地不断学习和探索,反过来,顺畅的沟通又促进了运动技能的发展与团队精神的养成。


Well done, our young baseball players!

玮希的孩子们棒棒哒!加油!
