MOA SIGNING FOR BATANG PINOY 2013 VISAYAS LEG


PhilBoxing.com


The memorandum of agreement (MOA) for the hosting of the Philippine National Youth Games or Batang Pinoy 2013 Visayas Qualifying Leg was signed by the Philippine Sports Commission and the City Government of Maasin. The signing ceremony was held at the Philsports Arena media room in Pasig City last July 23, 2013. The MOA formalized the hosting of Maasin City, Southern Leyte of the Visayas regional elimination of the National Youth Games on September 24-28, 2013.

The PSC was represented by Commissioner Jose Luis Gomez while this writer singed in behalf of the city government. Batang Pinoy Executive Director Atty. Jay Alano and Maasin City Administrator Atty. Feorillo Demeterio, Jr. witnessed the signing ceremony.


The capital city of Southern Leyte was informed of its hosting only last month but did not hesitate to accept the challenge of hosting more than 3000 athletes during the schedule of the games. Maasin was the host of the National Boxing Championships last February. It has hosted three Eastern Visayas Regional Athletic Association meets in 1998, 2005 and 2012.

The host city will provide free billeting for all the participating athletes, coaches, trainers, delegation officials and affiliated/local technical officials. the city will also offer free shuttle for the participating teams from the port/terminal to the billeting centers to the playing venues.

This will be a smoke-free Batang Pinoy and smoking will be strictly prohibited in all billeting quarters, playing venues and public places and public utility vehicles. The city is a Hall of Fame Red Orchid awardee on anti-smoking of the Department of Health and World Health Organization.

Last year, Maasin City placed seventh during the Visayas leg held in Tacloban City with 10 golds, 28 silvers and 16 bronzes. Cebu City was the first placer with 70-56-54 medal harvest, with 35 gold medals in dance sports. Second was Leyte province represented by Leyte Sports Academy with 39 gold medals, of which 32 were in athletics, together with 26 silver and 27 bronze medals.

Third was Bacolod City with 32-26-27 slate, with 17 golds from swimming. Negros Occidental finished fourth with 17 gold medals in swimming.
Mandaue City reaped a 16-5-9 medal haul for a fifth place finish. Aklan got a 14-18-12 medal to rank sixth.

Maasin City was the smallest local government unit (LGU) among the top ten in the Visayas standings. But our athletes were not ale to compete in the national finals in Iloilo City on December 5-8, 2012 due to the typhoon.

The MOA signing was held during the Sports Science Seminar conducted by world-famous strength and mind conditioning experts Jason Andrew Glass and Janet Joyce Alexander. There were more than 400 athletes, coaches, trainers and officials who were either school or LGU-based, who attended the seminar.
