Year of the Tiger!

Gong Xi! Gong Xi! Yes, the festive season of Chinese New Year is just around the corner. To all the students, happy holiday! :)

This week, Spearhead had its training session on a rather unusual day - Tuesday afternoon. Reason being, this coming Saturday will be Chinese New Year Eve and therefore, we won't be having any training. The replacement training on Tuesday saw only a handful of people with the rest getting caught up with tuition and school work.

This year is the year of the Tiger. Tiger usually represents something powerful, a force to be reckoned with. Similarly, 2010 is the year Spearhead makes its mark in the Penang Floorball scene. Just like the tiger, we want to be a powerful force - a leading element - one that will have a wave of impact in the floorball scene.

Why is a tiger fierce and powerful? Simply because he knows what he can do. More importantly, he knows that he is a Tiger. Do you know what you can do in Spearhead? Do you know the potential that you have? Each of you have the capacity to be a Tiger!

So to all Spearhead members, when you go for your Chinese New Year visits and if you do see a Tiger picture around somewhere, think about Spearhead.

Be the Tiger.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Weekday Training!

Hear ye'! Hear ye'!
To all Spearhead members!


Please take note that the next Spearhead training session will be held on the 9th February 2010, Tuesday, from 3pm-5pm at Red Crescent. So, please arrange your own transport ya'. If you can't make it for some reasons, please inform either Coach Chris or Coach Penny as soon as possible.

As the Penang Floorball League Division II is drawing near, training sessions from hence forth will be crucial and the intensity will be higher. Commitment will be an essential attitude that we will need as a team if we want to achieve unity, and unity to victory. So be ready team!

Spearhead made their first “Contact”!

Spearhead ventured out on their first ever friendly match, making their first “contact” with another club in Penang, last Saturday, 30th January 2010, at Rifle Range Hall. We had the privilege of meeting team Contact in the friendly, a team whom we can learn a lot from. Considering that it was our first outing, it was definitely a good start for us!

Friendly matches are arranged for different purposes. Likewise, we too came with certain objectives in mind for the team and for the players as well. The friendly match came with 3 main objectives.


Exposure
Being the first friendly match for the club, it served primarily as a platform for each player to gain a better understanding of the game in an ‘official’ setting. Every player was given the opportunity to play.

Evaluation
Even though it was a friendly match, every player was expected to give their all, hence, the match also served as an evaluation of the team and the individuals. As Spearhead continues to progress in the right direction, the club will eventually multiply into different lines of players. Therefore, this friendly also served as a ‘test’ or evaluation in regards to the players’ performance and the team as a whole in effort to see how Spearhead can be gelled together in a tighter team play.

Establishment
This friendly, although it may seemed like a insignificant event, marked our presence in the Penang floorball scene. It’s important to all Spearhead members to understand that we have made our presence felt and from hence forth, to further establish ourselves as a team to be reckon with and as a team to lead the advancement of floorball in Penang. WE need to walk in our identity as a Spearhead member and be proud of it!


On the match itself, team Contact, a far more experienced team with relatively better technical and tactical individuals, went on cruise control early in the game. Line 1 of Spearhead – consisted of Ruben, Calvin, Daniel, Syahmi and Jay-Sern – did give a few good scares in the first period with their very energetic and persistent runs. Line 2 – consisted of Mikhail, Hafiz, Farhail, Aziz and Kevin (substituted by Syamim) – also displayed a gallant spirit, giving 110% effort in trying to bring down the offensive line of team Contact. Bravo! The girls’ line, line 3 – consisted of Amelia, Cindy, Edith, Winnie (substituted by Lai Sin) and Nia – and they were more aggressive than usual! They rose up to the occasion with their no-nonsense play, standing tough against Contact players and they were adamant not to be pushed around. Great job girls’! Keep it up!

This is only our first friendly. There will be more to come. And as we slowly develop and grow toegether, we will be setting higher and bigger goals so as to challenge ourselves not merely to be good player but to be great players with great characters.

Remember team, never give up even though the scoreline may be 10-0. Scores are visuals measurements of what a team can do, but characters are the essence of what a team is made of. Our aim is to constantly move forward, to be a leading element. Therefore, moving backwards is NOT an option.

Why?... Simply because...

We are Spearhead.
