in dollar and cents bam & bjss players are lucky
transport to and fro from training is already too much for some parents
in quality and exposure, again bam & bjss are lucky
they get to send to more tournaments depending on their abilities and performances and training are in full mode
in discipline and freedom all are more or less the same
in sneaking out and in their homes/hostel to accomplish their mission is as easy as going tuition

Ppl priority should be #1 Necessity 1st, #2 Dreams later.
If they are already receiving some sort of 'scholarship', they (& their parents) should meet the association half way and invest in themselves.
these players if not talented enough and not financially strong enough should not be busy chasing stars.

if there are still complaint of current setup in bam and bjss maybe one should do some reading
of the past champions like hou chia chang, lim swie king, misbun sidek, rudy hartono to name a few
try find out their living condition, their training facility ......
and you all tell me can we do it for rm500 - 800 a month provided parents subsidize rm300

the job is only training to play competition
and its not going to be forever the same if one works hard works smart
payday will come. in indonesia it could be worse
influence, distraction, yes there are tons of them and also the wrong-wishers
those that gives the wrong infor, though some comes from, very sad to say, the parents
work with your coaches, trainers and the expert available
respect them and learn from them

True facts coming from a person who is in the business that the rest of us are only armchair critic.
If anyone is a close friend to these players, I suggest instead of 'agreeing' with the complaints and talking about 'how to boleh', Please try to give motivation or lecture. Cruel to be kind, but only a champion can survive harsh environment to improve.

consult your coach and approach the management
have them listen to your problem
and i am sure they would understand and sort for an answer
its their job to see all players living condition are there
as for part-time job if that permission is given i don't see why not
and i also don't see why not the management would not allow that
to help them make ends meet
i think ng chin chai is a good person to approach and
personally i think he will look into this kind of matter, i can even bet

certainly hope so, daniel
and jug8man has also make a good suggestion to those close to the players
''Cruel to be kind, but only a champion can survive harsh environment to improve.''
if this is happening, everyone knows their role and responsibility and know where to draw the line
yes, we can make improvement and then results will be there

Can we see some ray of light at the end of the tunnel soon?
IMHO, there is no simple answer when there is a shortage of money required to build up the Badminton level/standard for Malaysia.
After reading many of the above posts, we can say that none of the comments made so far are untrue and/or unfair (to both BAM and players/trainees).
Let us put our discussion in this manner;
BAM is saying this to our players:
We have set up a Sports School to help to raise the standard of Badminton for Malaysia. For talented players wishing to represent Malaysia in the future, we shall offer you free training programs. We will even pay some allowances to you, since you have to leave home (from your various states) to come to participate with us.
Players are saying this to BAM:
We wish to participate in your Sports School and we hope to represent Malaysia one day. But to train in your school, we have to miss going to universities to continue with our academic education. Even if we do not wish to go on to universities, we can move into the work-force to earn some money. We feel that when we participate in your program, we are working for you to raise the Badminton standard for Malaysia. Please treat us as BAM workers and pay us a proper standard wage like what a fair company would pay to its employees.

I can not fully agree with the 'players saying to BAM' part:-
From another post in BC:
my fav story from 'up in the air'
Ryan Bingham: You know why kids love athletes?
Bob: Because they screw lingerie models.
Ryan Bingham: No, that's why we love athletes. Kids love them because they follow their dreams.
Ppl who chase their dreams are not working. A working person is subject to 'constant severe performance reviews' like sales ppl.
Coaches are workers. Trainers are workers. Sparring partners are workers. They are there to provide a service for others and not for 'direct personal gain' besides the salary.
Badminton Players (in BAM) are the recepient of these 'services rendered' in the form of the player's development (hopefully not regression) in pursuit ultimately of their personal dreams.
The Few exceptions are when players are requested to play representing the country in inter country tournaments such as TC, Sudirman Cup, Sea Games, Olympic, Asia Games and etc.
