SELANGOR, for the 14th season, have emerged as the overall champions in the Malaysian Schools Sports Council (MSSM) programme.

Selangor, champions since 2001, were winners in eight sports – golf, gymnastics, basketball, tennis, aquatics, chess, softball, netball – and runner-up in six sports – rhythmic gymnastics, bowling, table tennis, volleyball and rugby – in the 24-event MSSM programme.

Selangor finished third in squash, badminton, netball, and handball. Selangor Education Department sports unit head Noor Azli Abdul Rahman said 2014 was an impressive season for them.

“It was a tough season as all the states have shown a lot of progress. For Selangor, the success was due to the intensive training and development programmes we had initiated.

“We also have excellent rapport with the state sports associations as well as the Selangor State Sport Council (MSNS).

“Their assistance had also contributed to our athletes doing well in the MSSM programme,’’ said Noor Azli.

Among the development programmes, the Selangor Schools Sports Council (MSSS) had started are the Mini Olympics and Under-11 sports carnival.

These programmes, Noor Azli added, served as a platform to identify talents as well as expose them to a competitive atmosphere.

“The programmes has served as a launching pad for many of the current state and national sportsmen and sportswomen.

“We will continue with the programmes. We are also working closely with the state sports associations to organise coaching as well as technical courses for teachers,’’ he said.

The MSSS programme for the new season will kick off with badminton championships, catering for three age groups - Under-12, Under-15 and Under-18 - for both boys and schools. This year’s championships will be hosted by Petaling Perdana District Schools Sports Council from Feb 4-7.

The MSSS championships will also serve as a base to select Selangor’s representatives for the MSSM championships.

Selangor have also been given the responsibility to host the basketball and bowling events in the MSSM programme.

“The basketball championships will be in Kuala Selangor and the bowling competition at the Megalanes in Sunway Pyramid,’’ added Noor Azli.

The MSSS will also be involved in the opening ceremony of the Sultan of Selangor’s Cup football competition. For the past two years, the MSSS was given the responsibility to perform the opening gambit before the kick off of the prestigious tournament involving Selangor and Singapore.

The cheerleading teams from six schools – Sri Kuala Lumpur, SMK Seafield, SMK Damansara Jaya, SMK Bandar Utama, SM Catholic, SMP Sri Aman – gave an energetic display during last year’s competition.

Noor Azli said they were looking forward to be part of the Sultan of Selangor Cup again this year.
