December has broken yet another record having spent a total of 109 training hours vs (72 hours in November and 54 hours in October). Taking full advantage of the final holiday weeks, the on-court hours has spiked up since July 2012 as seen from the graph. We had to cancel the final two weeks of tuition classes to allow the boys keep pace with their daily training demands. We can sense the resoluteness of the coaches as they work tirelessly to contend with the feisty activities.
With all the hard hours ploughed in especially over the past six months, the boy’s badminton is beginning to come of age. We begin to see a prelude of what seem a semblance of a lithe badminton player with correct coordinated flair, especially Aaron – yet there is still plenty of work to be done.
As I mull over our new resolution, in the mean time, the boys will have to brace themselves for the new academic year in 2013. Our challenge will be to balance between their hectic tuition hours vs badminton training hours. I am cringing now and will have to take one day at a time.
