University and China Sports Association increase cooperation with project associations
Xue Yanqing said that in recent years, the cooperation between the sports department and the education department has been advocated by the state. As Yao Ming, the chairman of the Chinese Basketball Association, said, sports that are separated from education or education that are separated from sports are incomplete. The General Sports Association and the China Sports Association have established good cooperation with associations in basketball, football, volleyball, track and field, shooting and other events, and have also achieved some results.
"For example, we have the full support of the China Shooting Association in training. Every time we participate in the Universiade, many of our athletes are trained by Tsinghua University, and the cooperation between the two parties is particularly good. Another example is that we need coach training and referee selection. Support, the Chinese Basketball Association supports us very much. Generally speaking, our cooperation with special associations has become more and more extensive, and there are more and more substantive cooperation contents. As we cooperate with Chinese Basketball Association and other associations Gradually deepen, I believe other project associations will follow up. Of course, there is still a lot of work for us to do."

Xue Yanqing said that in the old sports reserve talent training system, sports schools are an important link and are still playing an important role. However, parents now generally attach importance to the learning of cultural courses. In the past, traditional sports schools ignored their children's cultural lessons. The situation must change. The cooperation between sports schools and ordinary schools is very important.
"Children in the sports school system have a lot of training time, and the learning of cultural classes is insufficient. Now parents are increasingly reluctant to let their children go to sports schools at such a young age. Therefore, sports schools and ordinary schools, especially ordinary high-quality The cooperation between schools should be an urgent matter and is what we hope to advocate. In this way, the problem of cultural learning of the original sports school students has been solved without delaying the improvement of professional and technical level," Xue Yanqing said.
Xue Yanqing believes that traditional sports schools can have new development ideas in the new era. For example, they can change to the direction of youth training centers. They can also make full use of the teachers of sports schools to meet the needs of all parties and provide social services.
The coach of a high-level sports team run by the school is the core
Xue Yanqing said that from previous practice, there are at least three elements for a school to run a high-level sports team, and coach resources are the core of them.
"The first is that the school attaches importance to this. This is very important. The second is to have good coaches. This is a core. The third is related to the school’s emphasis, which is to have the supporting conditions to attract outstanding athletes. With these three elements, the school High-level sports teams can be run, and sports activities can be better carried out. Therefore, the coaches play a core role here. If there is no good coach, there are good seedlings you can’t teach you. ."
Realizing the importance of coaches, the University and the Chinese Sports Association have put coach training in an important position in their cooperation with the Chinese Basketball Association and the Chinese Football Association.

"Through the Chinese Basketball Association, we invite the best coaches in the country to give us classes and strengthen the training of coaches. In addition, we also have international cooperation. Every year, we introduce foreign coaches to the country to train coaches in the campus system. We also send some coaches to study abroad."
Xue Yanqing believes that, on the whole, the resources of excellent coaches in the education system are still relatively lacking and the foundation is relatively weak. At the same time, due to reasons such as establishment, professional title, salary, etc., some excellent coaches in the original professional system still have some obstacles to enter the school. He believes that if more schools pay attention to the development of sports activities and sports competitions, the supply of coaches will naturally follow when there is demand.
"This is also the same as the law of the market. When there is demand, there can be supply. So this is not only a policy issue, but also related to the overall development level of school sports," Xue Yanqing said.
Try to get through the competition system
For many years, the youth competitions (U series) of the sports system have been separated from the competition system of middle school and college students. Students in traditional sports schools are not eligible to participate in the competitions of the education system, and students from ordinary middle schools and universities rarely participate in the U of the sports system. Series of events. Xue Yanqing said that in the context of the comprehensive promotion of the integration of sports and education, the University and China Sports Associations also put the opening of the competition system on the agenda when cooperating with individual associations.
"Both of us have mentioned this issue and are trying to change it. For example, the junior and high school basketball leagues held by the Sports Association are similar in time to the U16 and U18 youth competitions in the original sports system. We can compare them together. Sports Association and Basketball Association. All are willing to do a good job of top-level design, both division of labor and cooperation, and work together to do a good job in the selection, training, competition and other related work of young people. In addition, like football and basketball, our junior high school and college league level are relatively high, especially It’s the women’s team. Many of the female team members of the professional youth teams are students from our university team. There are also college students who have been selected as the national team. Now, we and the Football Association are also negotiating on technical improvement and providing convenience for these students. "
According to Xue Yanqing, in basketball, football and other sports, ordinary students and professional echelon athletes have tried to participate in some competitions in their respective systems. Take basketball as an example. The level of the quarter-finals of the college students’ league matches is similar to the level of the Chinese Basketball Association U21 matches. The respective teams win each other in the exchange match, which objectively provides conditions for the opening of the competition system of both sides.
