Fighting all the way, every day is a new starting point
Looking back at the development history of the Tieli No. 1 Middle School volleyball team, the road to victory has never been just flowers and applause.
In the fall of 2011, Zhang Zhaohua started to form a volleyball team. The first batch of team members were selected from several surrounding primary and secondary schools. In 2013, the women’s volleyball team of Tieli No. 1 Middle School, which had been formed for less than two years, suffered a disastrous defeat. At the provincial middle school sports meeting, due to the huge difference in age and strength, they were beaten 25-0 by their opponents in the first game. “Parents were crying in the stands, and the players were crying below.” After the game, Zhang Zhaohua promised the players: “I will definitely lead you to win the provincial championship before you graduate!” Since then, everyone has been holding back a feeling of excitement. The hard training mode has been turned on, and even on New Year’s Eve and the first day of the Lunar New Year, I have to practice for a long time.
In 2014, Tieli No. 1 Middle School hosted the National Middle School Volleyball Championship. The women’s volleyball team of Tieli No. 1 Middle School participated in the national competition for the first time and won eighth place. Won second place in the men’s small age group competition.

He led the Tieli No. 1 Middle School Women’s Volleyball Team to win the provincial volleyball championship.
After more than 10 years of development, the Tieli No. 1 Middle School volleyball team already has a relatively stable team of about 50 players. In addition to the two team-building coaches, Zhang Zhaohua and Li Wei, two more coaches later joined the coaching staff, and a physical education teacher was responsible for the children’s physical training.
Fighting all the way from within the province to outside the province, and even out of the country.

Now this team has a new goal. “I hope to represent China in the World Volleyball Competition for Middle School Students and let more people know about the women’s volleyball team of Tieli No. 1 Middle School!” Zhang Zhaohua said with great expectation.
Behind the championship, multiple departments gather strong synergy
Zhang Zhaohua, who graduated from the School of Physical Education of Jilin University in 2011, could have gone to a big city to be a physical education teacher, but he chose Tieli No. 1 Middle School instead.
“I chose to come to Tieli. First, in 2010, Tieli City allocated 7 million yuan to build the largest steel structure gymnasium in the province for Tieli No. 1 Middle School; second, I have always had a ‘championship dream’ in my heart, and Tieli No. 1 Middle School is the only middle school that promised me to form a volleyball team,” Zhang Zhaohua said.
The road to becoming a champion cannot be paved without fertile soil that nourishes the growth of champions. The Tieli No. 1 Middle School Volleyball Team, as a school team in a county-level city, has become a model for the integration of sports and education at the grassroots level in China. It has emerged as a group of volleyball players who shine on the field.

Starting in 2017, Tieli City has specially approved special funds of 500,000 yuan every year, which will be adjusted to 600,000 yuan in 2020. In 2023, another 700,000 yuan will be allocated to support the development of volleyball. The team’s training equipment, competition fees and team members’ training subsidies are all guaranteed, and children participating in training do not have to pay fees. In 2021, Tieli City invested another 6.33 million yuan to comprehensively upgrade the training venues.
