Campers reduced but BCAN unfazed-A A +A
Tuesday, April 1, 2014
FORTY-TWO trainees registered yesterday in Day 1 of the 2nd Basketball Coaches Association of Negros (BCAN) summer camp at St. John's Activity Center in Bacolod City.
BCAN president Bobby Tee and the rest of the coaching staff are optimistic the number will increase in the next days to come.
First day benefit for kids as young as three years old is the chance to be trained closely as the student-coach ratio was 7:1.
"Last year's attendance was 140 but if that cannot be duplicated, the camp will go on as scheduled," Tee said.
Coaches who trained the newcomers on Monday were Junjun Gustilo of Trinity Christian School, Dennis Tumayan of West Negros University, Richie Militante of St. John's Institute, Marloni Gonzales of University of St. La Salle and Nene Sibaya.
Also in the staff are training director Jake Azucena, Rene Cuison, Jojo Banilla and Monmon Ordas.
The campers will be taught the basic skills of basketball such as ballhandling, dribbling, shooting, conditioning, warm-up exercises, and team work in the later stage.
Certificates of completion and special awards will be given to outstanding graduates plus gifts and other prizes. (HGD)
