ICC is designed specifically to serve all student across the colleges through different sports and cultural activities. These activities are competitive, recreational and also instructional in nature as each college is represented in inter-collegiate competitions and tournaments.
Each activity is organised by members of the House Association as a learning experience for all participants through their involvement in public relations, organization, administration, budgeting and scheduling, as well as the development of skills in their particular sport. While participation in ICC activities is open to RC students and Resident Fellows, the primary philosophy of ICC is “student-led, student-run.” This relates to the overall vision of UM’s 4-in-1 model: Community and Peer Education and is now in full operation.

Inaugural Match between Shiu Pong College (Left) and Pearl Jubilee College (Right) – With Special Guests: Mr. Paul Pang (Dean of Students), Prof. David Pong (Master CKY College) and Prof. Walter Ho (Associate Master CKY College)
Mixed-gendered teams representing the nine colleges were divided into two groups for the qualifying stage. Only the top two teams from each group advanced into the semi-finals. Dodgeball is a game in which players on two teams try to throw balls at each other while avoiding being hit themselves. There are many variations of the game, but generally the main 10 | P a g e
objective of each team is to eliminate all members of the opposing team by hitting them with thrown balls, catching a ball thrown by a member of the opposing team, or forcing them to move outside the court boundaries when a ball is thrown at them.
Playing Dodgeball increases agility and balance: Players running across a court improve agility as they adjust their bodies at a rapid pace. It can also help them to improve their balance.
The game improves hand-to-eye coordination: To successfully hit other players, throwers need to coordinate their throws not only with the other playersâ€™ current location, but also take into account where the ball lands.
11 | P a g e
Players become more flexibile as they are constantly twisting and turning, bending up and down and jumping around. Over time, playersâ€™ flexibility improve, which can also carry over into daily activities as well.
In fact, Dodgeball is a great form of anaerobic exercise: The short bursts of sprinting involved in a game of dodgeball can improve cardiovascular health by lowering blood pressure and pulse, improving circulation and burning calories. In addition, the game also builds teamwork and leadership skills by having the players working closely with each other to eliminate the opposition.
Team building is a great way to enhance collaboration and also hone gain leadership skills

UNIVERSITY OF MACAU STAFF SOCCER CLUB (UMSSC) LIFTS ICC’s INAUGURAL ASSOCIATE MASTERS’ CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY
ICC Champions, Chao Kuang Pio College (CKPC), marched into UM’s N9 Stadium: exuberant with pride and confidence. They had Master Chuang Sheng Liu supporting and cheering their young aspiring players with the likes of Theo, Jason, and Huber, and captain Anson Sou leading the ‘Reds’ to play against a more seasoned and battle-hardened staff team, many of whom have played for than a decade together.

At first, one would assume that the college champions would run riot and cause all sorts of havoc in the UMSSC half. However, that was not the case, as the veterans opened the scoring with and early goal, rocking the confident form of their younger opponents. CKPC found it difficult to penetrate a solid defensive line dutifully manned by Calvin Tam (FST) and Kou Pan (OSA), as well as midfield maestros LuĂs Amorim (OSA), Miguel da Costa JĂşnior (FST) and Tam Weng Hong (FOM), blocking nearly each and every CKPC attack. The veterans could have added a second but their attempt cannoned of the woodwork.
Immediately after the interval, CKPC made several changes to their team tactics by fielding a host of guest players from across the collegiate system, adding substantial fire-power to their strike force.
23 | P a g e
The match became more exciting with adrenalin levels surging over peak level. UMSSC added another goal mid-way into the final quarter of the match, making it almost impossible to comeback.
In the last five minutes of play, CKPC stepped up their blistering pace and launched an all-out attack on the veterans, forcing their way into the six-yard box and equalising in the final seconds to draw 2-2 with an incredible never-say-die attitude. In the penalty shoot-out, the veterans scored 5 out of six tries, with Bruce hitting the wood work, while Kyle and Jason both unable to find the back of the net, bringing the final score to 7-5 with UMSSC as match winners, while leaving a younger inexperienced CKPC side still feeling satisfied with themselves after a second cup final that entertained and excited for 80 minutes.
