Tianzhushan Zhongxing Primary School’s (天柱山中心小学) Youth Spotlight soccer team was established in April of 2016, and was the first soccer team made up of left-behind children in Qianshan County. Immediately after it was established, more than 50 students joined. Lacking a training site, they decided to train in Yezhai Middle School’s sports field. Lacking professional teachers, they decided to employ a PE teacher that was skilled in soccer and insisted on two training sessions per week, a practice that has stayed with them. In May, 2017, they placed third in the Wanxin Education Cup (皖新教育杯), a tournament for all the primary and middle schools in the county. In October of 2017, performed remarkably in the Youth Spotlight Cup and were well received.
Their team will uphold the educational spirit of “self-discipline for growth, self-reliance for prowess, and self-confidence for success.” They will lead the children on the path to health and maturity through exercise—will continue to lead them under the slogan “I love soccer!”Coach: Jiang Feng
