To promote the development of the School Sports Programme in schools, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (the LCSD) has launched the "Sports Award Scheme" with a view to encouraging schools to actively participate in sports and promoting the culture of "one student, one sport" on campus, thereby helping students develop an active and healthy lifestyle.
The "Sports Award Scheme" comprises three auxiliary award schemes, namely "sportACT", "sportFIT" and "sportTAG". By granting awards, the Scheme aims to encourage students to take an objective skill test on a sport of their choice where the skill level of a student in that sport, as assessed by the respective national sports associations (NSAs), will be used as an indicator for the training needs of that student. Besides, students are encouraged to take structured courses and undergo specialised training under the Joint School Sports Training Programme to enhance their sports skills progressively.
