SOME 100 students have confirmed participation and more to follow for the Basketball Coaches Association of Negros (BCAN) clinic slated April 1 to 12 at St. John's Institute Activity Center here in Bacolod City.
These young aspirants aged 10 to 12 years old come from various schools whose coaches are members of BCAN, says president Bobby Tee on Monday at West Negros University where he met with WNU sports director Tony Agustin, Rene Cuison, formerly of St. Joseph's High School, Jerome Galunan of Watchmen Daily Journal and Jake Azucena of SJI for another project not related to basketball.
Lito Librodo of Tangub Christian Academy, head of a 10-man training team composed of 6 coaches and 3 supervisors, has set three meetings with coaches to simulate a training program for kids 12 years and under from 9 a.m. to 12 noon Monday to Friday.
Registration fee is pegged at P1,200 which entitles a trainee a T shirt and basketball ball upon finishing the course.
Other trainors are Rey Pandoro (Bacolod Tay Tung High School), Nene Sibaya (SJI), Marloni Gonzales (University of St. La Salle), Lyndon Locsin (St. Benilde School), Gerom Aledron (University of Negros Occ.-Recoletos) and Arvin Gustilo (Trinity Christian School).
Jake Azucena, (SJI), Elmo Quiatchon (MCA) and Rene Cuizon will supervise the training which gives premium to basics, conditioning, fundamentals, and teamwork.
BCAN, organized late last year, aims to solidify its group, promote goodwill among members, develop more kids to love the sport and improve their skills. Its members have been trained with the latest teachings in Manila workshops related to National Basketball Training Center's outreach programs in the provinces.
