KUALA LUMPUR: National doubles chief coach Yap Kim Hock is laying down the rule at the national badminton training camp.
Kim Hock said yesterday that some of the senior players were not staying in the hostel and there were also no restrictions preventing the players from moving in and out of the hostel.
The coach said the rules have to be improved.
We do not want our relaxed rule at the training camp to affect players in training. The players must have enough rest and must be monitored. It is important to be disciplined. I just feel that we need to improve on it a little more, said Kim Hock.
Probably, players who are married may be allowed to stay out. But the unmarried ones, young or old, must stay in the hostel.
Currently, about 50 national and back-up men and women players are housed at the hostel adjacent to the Stadium Juara in Bukit Kiara.
There are security personnel at the compound. But it will be good to house a guard or security personnel to monitor the people in hostel on a 24-hour basis. We will look into this. This is a high performances training centre and we want everything to be looked into, he said.
