In rugby dropping the ball stops your team’s progression towards the ultimate objective of scoring a try and winning the game. In life “dropping the ball” represents involvement with crime, triads and drugs – distractions that will ultimately stop the individual's progression to realizing their potential at school and beyond.
In conjunction with the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union and Youth.gov.hk, the Hong Kong Police Force NTS Regional Crime Prevention Office is launching the “Don’t Drop the Ball” youth rugby football training and anti-crime programme for the secondary and primary schools in the area. This new programme is aimed at encouraging young people to take part in healthy exercise, so that they will develop a positive outlook in life, and learn to be law-abiding citizens and make contributions to society in future.
Youth.gov.hk will lend its full support to this meaningful programme by giving visitors online access to the programme details and video clips featuring highlights of related activities.
