  Sports high school entrance examination football project is becoming more and more "popular"

  2021 is the first year of the reform of the Guangzhou Sports High School Entrance Examination, with football, basketball and volleyball becoming the examination items.

Among the 8 options of the second category, the jump category includes standing long jump, triple long jump, and one-minute rope skipping, and the throw category includes throwing medicine ball and shot put.

In addition to the middle and long distance running and swimming of the first category, candidates must choose 2 out of the 8 items in the second category for examination, and the same type (jumping, throwing, ball) can only choose among them an item.

  According to the Guangzhou Municipal Admissions and Examination Committee Office, among the first-class programs in the Guangzhou Sports High School Entrance Examination this year, 103,243 people applied for the middle and long distance running, making it the program with the largest number of applicants among all the programs, followed by football with nearly 100,000 applicants.

The third largest number of applicants is the one-minute rope skipping project, with 61,692 people.

There are 3,791 applicants for basketball, which is also a ball game, and 544 people for volleyball.

Judging from the number of applicants this year, football is in a far leading position among the "three major goals".

  Last year, a total of 90,544 people participated in the Guangzhou Sports High School Entrance Examination, and the top three applicants for each project were the same as this year.

Last year, 56,892 people applied for football, 7,823 for basketball and 2,311 for volleyball.

Through the data of the past two years, it can be found that the number of candidates participating in the sports high school entrance examination this year is 20,920 more than last year, and the number of candidates applying for the football program is more than 40,000 more than last year.

In addition, the number of candidates applying for basketball and volleyball this year decreased by 4,032 and 1,767 respectively compared with last year.

In the second year after the "three big balls" joined the Guangzhou Sports Senior High School Entrance Examination, the football project became more and more "popular".

  "Hot" is not only because of "easy test" but also because of "love"

  The trend of more and more "popular" football items in the Guangzhou sports high school entrance examination is likely to continue.

  The first is because the pattern of the Guangzhou Sports High School Entrance Exam has changed.

Starting in 2023, the ball game will become a "required option", and fresh candidates must choose one of the three major balls of football, basketball and volleyball.

  Secondly, football is considered to be relatively low in difficulty among the ball items in the Guangzhou Sports High School Entrance Examination.

A physical education teacher said in an interview that by objectively analyzing the test content and standards of the current Guangzhou Sports High School Entrance Examination ball items, comparing the difficulty of the items and the learning time and learning efficiency for students to master the relevant skills, the football program is a good choice for candidates.

Some physical education teachers also told reporters that football has a relatively higher fault tolerance rate among the ball items in the middle school entrance examination, and the examination time is relatively more abundant.

Therefore, under the scientific guidance of the physical education teacher, and the practice is serious enough and hard enough, the probability of obtaining a high score or even a full score is relatively higher.

  However, there are also physical education teachers who believe that the test content of the Guangzhou Sports High School Entrance Examination football program includes the ball, rounding, passing, dribbling, shooting, etc., covering multiple links and basic skills of football, and it is still not easy to get high scores and full marks. , still requires a lot of hard practice.

Starting from their own interests, more and more students choose football as their "first option" for the second-level sports in the middle school entrance examination, and give time, sweat and love in sports classes and after-school physical exercises .

They train hard to get high marks and perfect marks, not just to get high marks and perfect marks.

  "Love" comes from campus football culture

  According to Zha Feng, a physical education teacher at Guangzhou Zhenguang Middle School, the number of students applying for the football program in the third grade of the school has risen sharply, increasing to more than 70% this year, and the number of male and female applicants has also increased rapidly.

Zhenguang Middle School is a national campus football characteristic school and a provincial and municipal football traditional project school.

The school's campus football began in the 1970s. The "True Light Cup" class league has been held for 47 sessions, with a cumulative number of participants exceeding 90,000.

  Zha Feng believes that the campus football has a profound cultural heritage, complete football field facilities, and a good sports atmosphere. These factors determine Makoko's love for football, and are also an important reason why the football program in the sports high school entrance examination is becoming more and more popular among students.

In addition to the football environment on campus, Zha Feng believes that Guangzhou has a very broad mass football foundation, and football has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, which is another important reason for Guangzhou candidates to choose football in the sports high school entrance examination.

  Zha Feng said that football will still be a popular item in the middle school entrance examination next year.

"The football program will be an 'absolutely big player' in next year's 'one out of three', and the number of applicants is expected to increase further in the future."

  In Guangzhou, before entering junior high school, many students watched and played football with their parents who loved football when they were young, or started to participate in football training in elementary school.

The reason why football has become a popular sport in the senior high school entrance examination is inseparable from the strong support of many primary schools in Guangzhou and its long-term persistence in campus football, so as to enlighten students, stimulate interest and lay a foundation for football.

  Many primary schools in Guangzhou have a special football lesson every week.

Huanghua Primary School is a national youth campus football characteristic school. Students in grades 1 to 6 have a football lesson every week.

Huanghua Primary School has compiled its own football school-based curriculum, starting from physical training, popularizing football rules and knowledge, and popularizing basic football skills and movements.

In addition, the school will hold a football festival, and students with relatively high football level will also participate in training after school.

  According to He Guosheng, a physical education teacher at the school, football teaching is also divided into gradients for students of different grades.

"Many students have been exposed to football in elementary school, and they will consider developing football projects first in junior high school." Mr. He introduced that after six years of systematic study, most students can basically master the correct technical movements when they graduate, and achieve " It is no stranger to encounter football.” When facing the high school entrance examination, choosing a football project will also have an advantage.

  In 2022, a total of 111,464 people will take part in the Guangzhou Sports High School Entrance Examination, 20,920 more than last year.

  Among the first-category events, 103,243 people applied for the middle and long-distance running, making it the one with the largest number of applicants among all the events.

  It was followed by football with nearly 100,000 applicants; the third-largest number of applicants was the one-minute rope skipping project, with 61,692 people.

  At present, Guangzhou has built a total of 207 national youth campus football characteristic schools, 2 national youth campus football pilot areas, 1 "Starry Sky" training camp, 6 national football characteristic kindergarten demonstration parks, 67 football characteristic kindergartens, provincial There are 3 campus football pilot areas, 270 provincial campus football promotion schools, 1020 municipal campus football promotion schools, 102 municipal sports traditional project (football) schools, 100 municipal campus football base schools, and municipal high schools. Level 26 student sports (football events) teams.
