"Pay attention to defense and don’t forget to cooperate with teammates!" Under the guidance of the coach, Li Xiaohui, a quarterback, used his clever passing feint and feinted a shot to win the offensive opportunity for the players. The red flag at the opponent’s waist was torn off instantly, and Li Xiaohui successfully assisted and scored.
This is the scene of the public elective course "Waist Flag Rugby" in Zhongnan University of Economics and Law (hereinafter referred to as "Zhongnan University of Finance"). Li Xiaohui is a sophomore in mathematics and statistics and a member of the school’s flag football team.
Not long ago, as the core of the team, she led the school’s first flag rugby team to win three gold medals in the first rugby championship in Hubei Province. After winning the laurel, she wrote on the social platform: "I finally learned rugby, but I learned more than rugby."
From the classroom to the stadium, the "temporary sports team" stormed the waist flag football competition.
On December 9, 2023, the first Rugby Championship of Hubei Universities and the NFL FLAG Rugby Competition (Hubei Division) started in Wuhan University. More than 200 athletes from 12 universities in Hubei Province participated.
Facing the strong rivals with established rugby teams such as Wuhan University and Wuhan Institute of Physical Education, Zhongnan Finance University Rugby Club, a "new star" of the student sports team established less than two months ago, won three gold medals in women’s group A, men’s group A and mixed group. Li Jinglin, one of the instructors and coaches, thinks: "Absolute unity and indomitable spirit are the key."
"The flag football is a simplified version of football. Compared with the formal football game, it pays more attention to skills and relies on physical flexibility. The game stipulates that a waist flag is hung on the attacker’s belt, and when the defender pulls down the waist flag on the attacker’s belt with the ball, the attack is stopped. " In the first class, Li Jinglin explained the basic rules to the students. "It is a safe and non-collision sport, but it needs clever teamwork and tactical cooperation, and it is also a very cohesive sport."
Li Xiaohui, who was born in the track and field team, is agile and explosive. She is quite talented in sports, but she was criticized by the teacher in the first class.
"Rush out so fast? Have you figured out the tactics? Regardless of your teammates? " Three questions made Li Xiaohui speechless. At first, she only cared about her own score, ignoring the cooperation and cooperation of the team. After a class of practice and a game of running-in, Li Xiaohui finally understood that this is not a project that can be won by personal brute force.
Li Xiaohui took the initiative to stay and practice, reflect on every movement on the field, and change from a stranger of different majors to a "comrade-in-arms" who can understand with his teammates. "I really realized that sportsmanship is not only a fighting spirit, but also a team spirit and a spirit of sacrifice."
In order to prepare for the first provincial competition, Li Jinglin and her partner Wang Zehua selected 24 students from two classes they taught, and they didn’t formally train as a team until October 2023. Young teams are the most inexperienced. Under the guidance of coaches, the team "practices four times a week" to learn tactics, analyze and summarize. "Although the training of the flag football team has left the classroom and gone to the stadium, the core of training and learning is the same. Cultivating students’ sense of role division and team cohesion is the purpose of offering this course and providing a platform for practice and competition."
Outdoor courses are new, and students are from "Little White" to expert in pulp board rescue.
This semester, Yang Xinyi, a sophomore in mathematics and statistics, grabbed a online celebrity class and learned a new skill.
In September, 2023, like swimming, she chose the newly-opened public course "Pulp Board". In a pulp board rescue class, she played the rescued person who accidentally fell into the water. The nearest classmate immediately turned over the board to rescue her, but her strength was not enough. The pulp board could not support her weight. At a critical juncture, two other students nearby also rushed to the board. It only took more than 30 seconds for Yang Xinyi to be successfully rescued.
"One person’s strength may not be enough, but the strength of a group of people can certainly." Teacher Zeng Qifei preached.
"perfect score, beautiful!" Thirty students rowed about 270 meters independently in Xiaonanhu, the school. With the teacher’s order, the students changed from kneeling position to standing position and sprinted forward. Shi Yashang, a 2022 law school student, won the first place in the men’s group as he wished.
Just two months ago, he was a "layman" who had never been exposed to any water sports. Now, the pulp board class has ended, but Shi Yashang’s pulp board addiction is not over yet. In order to continue practicing in the future, he bought his first pulp board.
When Shi Yashang just grabbed this popular class, he once thought that he would be able to row freely on the water with a paddle like a surfer. Unexpectedly, it was the third week since he actually got on the board.
"First, drag the pulp board out of the equipment room to pump up, and three people will work together to hit a board. Only when the boat is strong enough, you will not capsize." In the second class, Zeng Qifei asked students to do equipment preparation and safety inspection. Shi Yashang, who is looking forward to galloping on the water, seems a little listless.
"After pumping up for most of the class, when can I paddle?" He was complaining in his heart. Zeng Qifei went to his side and helped him inflate together. He said, "The balance and coordination of water sports test the patience of athletes. If you don’t even have the patience to prepare equipment, how can you cope with the wind and waves?"
Zeng Qifei told reporters that these seemingly boring preparations are also "compulsory courses" he arranged for the students. At the same time, as the orienteering coach of the school, he believes that physical education teaching is not a skill to teach students to jump high and run far, but should pay more attention to the cultivation of students’ personality and the tempering of their will quality.
Helping students to improve their personality and temper their will in physical exercise is the focus of sports education actively promoted by Zhongnan University of Finance and Economics. In 2023, the sports department of Zhongnan University of Finance and Economics opened new courses such as Paddle Board, Paragliding, Ultimate Frisbee for College Students, Rugby Flag and Body Correction, and promoted the teaching mode of "Sports+Ideological and Political Education", and the new classes were full and widely praised.
Create sports culture and promote the normalization of extracurricular exercise
"People who used to hate running the most now go running every day." Yan Changhao, a 2022 student of the School of Economics, was appraised by his roommate: "He is more energetic, like a different person."
In the past three years, Zhongnan University of Finance and Economics has included regular healthy running in the scope of sports performance assessment, and launched the "Sunshine Sports" applet to urge students to punch in every week.
At the beginning, the weekly sunshine sports was Yan Changhao’s biggest headache, but he ran and ran, and his punching frequency became more and more frequent, exceeding the task every time. "If you persist, you will get into the habit of running around Xiaonanhu every day, which can not only exercise but also empty your mind and give yourself a time to relax." Yan Changhao said.
It is understood that the Sports Department of Zhongnan University of Finance and Economics is making great efforts to promote students’ "one hour a day" campus sports activities. For the whole school students, we advocate "getting out of the dormitory, getting off the internet and going to the playground", hold regular national aerobics and "Freshman Cup" series of sports events, and organize activities such as sunshine long-distance running competition and punching in the lake.
In addition, relying on the Red Revolution Education Base, the school also developed the "Red Physical Education" practical course, explored the cultural resources of physical education classroom by flying across the canyon, cooking in a pot and camping on foot, created an experiential sports ideological and political classroom with the theme of "Party building+performance", and held the "Praise for the Party’s Grace and Follow the Party" sports art classroom performance activities.
"We pay attention to hierarchical classification and promote the characteristics of teaching content. Follow the characteristics of sports and the law of students’ growth, and create courses suitable for students with different physical fitness and different levels, so that students can experience the spirit of unity, cooperation and tenacious struggle while learning, practicing and competing. " Huang Hongyuan, director of the sports department, introduced.
This year, with the support of the school, the Ministry of Physical Education will launch a new talent training program, and the required credits for physical education will be increased from 4 to 8. On the basis of physical education class, nearly 30 characteristic physical education courses, such as outdoor sports, balloon volleyball, swimming, yoga, sports dance, body building and etiquette, will be newly opened.
"In the new semester, we will add more adaptation classes, invest more teachers, give students more choices, and do our best to do a good job in sports education." Huang Hongyuan said.
