加拿大西三一大学(TWU)男子篮球队到访中国

The trip will officially launch with a game Oct. 11 against the Seattle Mountaineers at the Richmond Oval at 7:30 p.m.

TWU男子篮球队(Spartans,斯巴达队)三年第二次开启中国友好之旅,时间从十月11日至20日,它体现了TWU在球场上努力进一步深化TWU的理念和国际形象。

与2011年斯巴达队(the Spartans)访华相似,球队在中国北方四所城市与四只不同球队进行比赛,四支球队包括:武汉理工大学、天津工业大学、清华大学、天津职业篮球队。

随着TWU关注发展其国际形象和亚洲的品牌效应,这次旅程将成为继续建立并巩固同当地大学和政府合作关系的机会。总的来说,球队将访问武汉、天津、北京和上海,这些地方人口总和大约6千万。

篮球在中国非常受欢迎,男篮有非常大的能力为TWU开拓市场,实现品牌成功并通过合作推广品牌,相应得,提升大学正面的形象。

TWU副教务长Phil Laird表示:“对于一个致力于对学生产生积极影响和国际合作的大学,体育不仅是文化交流的桥梁,也是展示TWU品质和特色的机会。”

TWU与中国大学合作可以追溯到1995年,大约20年时间。在过去的11年里,TWU签署协议,向来自天津的访问教师提供加拿大教学风格的教育项目。自从2002年起,超过100为来自天津的老师参加过这个项目,对天津的教育教学产生了重要影响。 今年一月,TWU同武汉市联合开展相似的访问教师项目,第一批访问教师已经于九月下旬抵达栏里市(Langley)。

过去一年半时间里,TWU着手管理在天津的唯一外国MBA项目。该项目开始于1987年,与美国奥城大学(俄克拉荷马城市大学)合作,现在与天津财经大学进行合作。目前,最近的合作中, TWU管理合作项目。TWU长城MBA项目官方启动和开幕典礼在十月十七日举行,同时斯巴达队届时也在天津。

TWU男篮将来到中国参加十月十四日在武汉举行的访问教师项目开幕典礼。

这次旅程一定会提高TWU作为国际大学的形象,也是斯巴达队年轻队员团结协作,准备2013-2014赛季的机会。

斯巴达队教练Scott Allen表示:“我认为一起旅行面对不利环境会帮助我们相互依赖彼此长处,我们正处在努力建设球队的阶段,这次旅程对我们成为一个更团结的集体至关重要。”

这次行程十月十一号正式开始,在Richmond Oval,下午7点30分同Seattle Mountaineers进行比赛,这场比赛的目的是进一步宣传TWU Richmond校区,它的课程在Richmond Oval上。比赛结束后,球队将立刻动身前往中国。

十月11日的比赛赠票有限,预定请拨打604-513-2067或访问网站event site 。

上一次TWU男篮到中国比赛还是2011年,当时在四场表演赛中取得了3胜1平的成绩。

那年TWU担保中国中央广播电视台到加拿大,拍摄了TWU校园,随后同男篮一起开始亚洲之行。摄制组整理了TWU教育的纪录片,并在中国中央电视台播放。结果,2011到2012年,申请TWU的中国学生人数至少增加了20%。

TWU的Spartans男子篮球队第三次中国之行,如同2007年女排的友谊之旅。

Men's basketball set for goodwill trip to China

For the second time in three years, the Trinity Western men’s basketball team will embark upon a goodwill trip to China, Oct. 11-20, where it will represent the University on the court in an effort to help further both TWU’s engagement and global profile abroad.

Much like the Spartans trip to China in 2011, the team will get a chance to play four different games in four northern Chinese cities, including against Wuhan University of Technology, Tianjin Polytechnic University, Tsinghua University and a local Tianjin professional team.

The trip will be an opportunity to continue to build connections and strengthen relationships with both the local universities and governments as TWU looks to expand its global presence and its brand in Asia. All told, the team will visit the cities of Wuhan, Tianjin, Beijing and Shanghai, which have a combined population of approximately 60 million.

With the popularity of basketball in China, the men’s team has a valuable ability to market TWU, brand success and leverage a process of branding by association, which, in turn, will elevate positive exposure for the University.

“Sport not only bridges cultural divides, it also provides an opportunity to showcase TWU’s quality and distinction as a university that invests in student impact and global engagement,” said Phil Laird, TWU Associate Provost.

Trinity Western has been working with universities in China for nearly 20 years, dating back to 1995. For the past 11 years, TWU has had an agreement to provide education in Canadian teaching styles to visiting teachers from Tianjin. Since 2002, over 100 teachers from Tianjin have gone through the program, which has had a significant impact on the teaching of education in Tianjin. This past January, TWU worked with the City of Wuhan to begin a similar visiting teachers program and the first group of teachers arrived in Langley in late September.

Over the past year and half, TWU has also worked to take over the only foreign delivered MBA program in Tianjin. The program, which is being facilitated at the Tianjin University of Finance and Economics, began in 1987 with a connection to Oklahoma City University. Now, with this latest move, TWU has taken over the delivery of the program. The official launch of the TWU Great Wall MBA program and opening ceremonies will take place on October 17, while the Spartans are in Tianjin.

The men’s basketball team will also be in China for the opening ceremonies of the visiting teachers program in Wuhan on October 14.

While the trip will certainly develop TWU’s profile as a global university, it will also be an opportunity for a fresh-faced Spartans side to bond as a team and build towards their 2013-14 season.

“I think travelling together and spending time in adverse situations will help us in our ability to rely on each other’s strengths,” said Spartans coach Scott Allen. “We’re in a stage of trying to form this team and this trip is vital for us to become a more cohesive unit.

“We felt the competition last time we went to China was strong. For us right now, we just need game experience. We need to run through our sets and then see how things work and this trip gives us a chance to work towards addressing any issues we have before we get into league play.”

The trip will officially launch with a game Oct. 11 against the Seattle Mountaineers at the Richmond Oval at 7:30 p.m. The game is intended to further promote TWU’s Richmond campus, which holds its classes at the Richmond Oval. The team will leave for China immediately after its game against Seattle.

There is a limited supply of complimentary tickets for the Oct. 11 game. Call 604-513-2067 or visit theevent site to reserve your tickets.

The last time TWU went to China, in 2011, the Spartans men’s basketball team earned three wins and one tie in their four-game exhibition series.

That year, TWU secured China’s national broadcaster to come to Canada and film the TWU campus and then follow the men’s basketball team throughout the tour in Asia. The film crew put together a documentary on TWU education, which aired on national television in China. As a result, as least in part, enrollment of Chinese students at TWU increased by more than 20 per cent from 2011 to 2012.

This is the third trip to China the Spartans have been involved in as the women’s volleyball team also went on a goodwill trip in 2007.
