ICS Post-Event 2018

November 22, 2018

 

The Inter-Collegiate Sports’ event that happened annually has come to an end for this year. Of course, this year’s event was slightly different from the previous year as the games offered were only Captains’ Ball, Dodgeball and Futsal and these three games were spread out over the span of 3 weeks. As one would expect, the competition between different teams were as intense as the previous years. However, for those who missed out on the excitement of the events, fret not, as here are some of the highlights we have covered for you guys!

 

CAPTAINS BALL

Captain’s ball had always been the one game that we played during our primary, secondary or tertiary schools to form bonds between our schoolmates. Now, not only can you form stronger bonds between your friends, you might even get to win attractive prizes by being one of the Top 3 winning teams! With the help of the helpers as well as organizers from ICS itself, Captain’s ball was brought into the professional scene.

 

These are the Top 3 teams for Captain’s ball:

1st: Team Hao Yi

2nd: Team Jamie

3rd: Team Zi Bi

 

DODGEBALL

Once again, the Dodgeball event was the most anticipated this year! Despite every team's aggressiveness to strike their opponents out of the match, the sportsmanship displayed by the participants throughout the event is truly commendable. Well, it's dodgeball after all. With aggressiveness being one of the key elements involved to eliminate their opponents, it kept the spectators rooted to their seats! While many teams were unable to avoid elimination, only the strongest contenders were able to dodge their way to victory!

 

Shoutout to the Top 3 Winners!

1st: Team Johnny Johnny

2nd: Team Name

3rd: Team WKWKWKWKWKWKWKWKWKWKWKWKWKWKWK

 

FUTSAL

Unlike the two mentioned games, Futsal was not only opened to the SIM students,  but also to tertiary students as well. For the enjoyment of the sports, and their desire to become champions, every team performed their utmost to compete with each other. It was astonishing to spectate these talents with burning determination as they unleashed their skill sets during game.

 

Congratulations to the Top 3 winners!

1st: Team Knockout

2nd: Team Your father full name fc

3rd: Team Last Minute

 

Shout out to Red Bull for sponsoring this event!

 

 

Below are some feedback and opinions from the participants and helpers from the events:

 

Captain’s ball

Participants:

Q: Overall experience with the game?

A: The organising committee did a great job in organising and were very clear of their job scopes as well as the rules. The referee was very sure of what he was doing and was strict on calling fouls. Most importantly, I had fun together with my teammates.

- Team Mochi, BB Beaches

 

Q: Areas of improvement of the game (+ve/-ve)

A: Rule can be briefed to every participant instead of just the captains as the information may not be passed down very well and not every player may have read through the PDF book. In addition, they could have mentioned before the start of the game that the first pass from outside of the court was not counted because it may cause slight confusion.

- Team Mochi, BB Beaches

 

Q: Would you recommend your friends to join/or would you join the event again?

A: Yes, I would recommend my friends to join but I will not join the event again as the cost of the event can be rather costly.

- Team Mochi

 

A: I would recommend my friends to join and I may join the event again. Just have to make sure that there are tall players in the team as there is height advantage for Captain’s Ball.

- BB Beaches

 

Helper:

Q: Why did you volunteer for this event as a helper and not as participant?

A: I volunteered as a helper because I’m not really a sports person but I enjoy watching people play. I feel that rather than being just a spectator, I can make myself useful by helping out.

- Lim Wei Ling

 

Q: Thoughts about the workload allocation

A: I feel that the helpers could’ve been given a bigger workload. Rather than just having the helper to be the “ball picker”, we could’ve been managing the water point or even the timekeeper.

- Lim Wei Ling

 

Q: Any other thoughts regarding to the event?

A: The event is fun and engaging for the students in SIM, it even promotes that having an active lifestyle can be fun and thus encouraging people to work out more. Overall, I feel that ICS is a successful event and it marks a great start to SRC’s first event.

- Lim Wei Ling

 

Dodgeball

Participants:

Q: What are your thoughts about this year’s dodgeball?

A: The organizers had the event well planned and executed smoothly with the expertise of the professionals form DAS.

- Kok Leong, Team Johnny Johnny

 

Q: How well did you think you performed? (like was it their best play or could be better)

A: I feel that we have done our best, and put up strong fight against the strong opponents in the finals. We certainly have outperformed ourselves as a team.

- Kok Leong, Team Johnny Johnny

 

Q: Will you come back again next year and why?

A: Of course we will! We’re a group of students who started dodgeball as a interest group in SIM and we hope to recruit more people, and help the dodgeball community to grow in the coming years. So come on, and join us!(:

- Kok Leong, Team Johnny Johnny

 

Helpers:

Q: Why did you volunteer for this event as a helper and not as participant?

A: Since I wasn’t very keen in the sports they offered and they needed people to help out, I volunteered as a helper instead of participant.

- Daren Soh

 

Q: Thoughts about the workload allocation

A: The event itself have sufficient helpers, especially from its own committee. Thus, they were very helpful and the workload was bearable.

- Daren Soh

 

Q: Any other thoughts regarding to the event?

A: After coming down as a helper, I feel that dodgeball is really an interesting sport and I would not mind trying it next year as a participant.

- Daren Soh

 

Futsal

Participants:

Q: Overall experience with the game

A: Overall experience was good (apart from losing)

- Team Rabona Pasta
 

Q: Areas of improvement of the game (+ve/-ve)

A: I feel that the duration of each game could have been longer so that the money we paid would be more worth even if we only play the group stages.

- Team Rabona Pasta

 

Q: Would you recommend your friends to join/or would you join the event again?

A: Yes, I would definitely recommend my friends to join and even join the event again.

- Team Robona Pasta

 

Helpers:

Q: Why did you volunteer for this event as a helper and not as participant?

- Fang Jen

 

Q: Thoughts about the workload allocation

A: So far, the workload allocation was great and fair.

- Fang Jen

 

Q: Any other thoughts regarding to the event?

- Fang Jen

 

And finally, a few words from the Organizers…

 

Q: What were the challenges faced during the planning of the event & solutions to overcome them?

A: Coming from different backgrounds and experiences meant that every person in the sub-committee has a unique view on how the event should be ran. Thus, there were communication issues when certain opinions/instructions were not followed or when I, as the programme IC did not pass them down on time. Furthermore, this is the first time most of us are planning for a sports event so I feel that the lack of game knowledge together with the lack of sports event experience accumulates and increases to the stress that we had.

 

Therefore, in order to solve these issues, we communicated more and ensured that everyone’s voice is heard. I also make sure that I passed down information quickly and accurately from the seniors. Everyone in the team also shared our different sports knowledge with one another and we memorized the rules of the game, ensuring that we were very well versed with the rules. We also approached our seniors when we were unsure of any issues or problems.

- Zong Han, Progs IC from ICS

 

Q: Areas of improvement/What have you learn from the event planning?

A: Communication can be made better if I had approached the team to talk about the existing misunderstandings and thus, able to solve them earlier to ensure a smoother work year. I have also understood that teamwork is really important, and as the IC, I should designate work evenly to my members instead of trying to collate the workload by myself. When in doubt, I have to clarify with the seniors and make sure that they know what my team and I are doing so that they can evaluate if we are on track and thus, able to give us the help we need.

- Zong Han, Progs IC from ICS

 

With the constructive feedback as well as experiences shared from the participants, helpers and organizers, this allows for better planning of events in the future so that we can look forward to more exciting events next time! We hope that you have a pleasant time reading through this article!
