UBC premier team got together celebrated Father's Day on June 21, 2015. There is a Chinese saying "Once a teacher, Forever a parent."(一日为师，终生为父). This is Coach Liu, like a father, caring for us and worrying about us. Even when no one sees him, he will think about how to help all of us improve. One such example is today, Father's Day. Usually, we do not have training on Father's Day, but coach Liu worried about our preparation for junior nationals and decided he would skip this holiday. Today, all of us were very happy, playing many matches with our teammates, no separation of age, and also ran a relay race. It was the most fun we have had in a while. Through all of our nerves and worry about preparation for junior nationals, I am glad we were able to relax a little and celebrate this Father's Day with coach Liu in such a happy environment.
