Sports, Exercise & Recreation

Interest levels in sport, exercise and wellness have increased rapidly in the last few years. From new technology detecting daily movements and calories burned per workout to healthy diets, the healthy lifestyle has become priority for everyone. 

Arguably, the participation in sports and physical activity is associated with improved physical, mental and social health. 

Considering the success of Hong Kong athletes and teams successfully representing Hong Kong at the major sporting events such as the summer Olympic Games, Asian Championships and World Championships, the Hong Kong’s sports and recreation industry has experienced sharp growth. As a result, there is a vast demand for sport and recreation professionals in both public and private sectors.        

We offer a wide range of academic courses and flexible study pathways, that update students with current knowledge and practices in the fields of recreation, sports, wellness, and exercise.   

Physical Activity = Happiness 

近年大眾積極追求健康,對運動的興趣迅速增長。從利用新科技來檢測日常活動和運動所消耗的卡路里以至進行健康飲食,反映大眾積極追求健康的生活。可以說,參與運動和體育活動與改善身體、心理和社交健康息息相關。

香港運動員和隊伍代表香港參與多項國際賽事,如夏季奧運會、亞錦賽和世錦賽等屢獲卓越成績,迅速帶動香港的體育和康樂業發展。因此,公共和私營機構對體育和康樂專業人才的需求亦相應日漸增長。

我們提供廣泛的學術課程和靈活的學習途徑,教授學生康樂、體育、健康領域的更新知識和實踐。

體育運動=快樂
