Thursday, December 5, 2013
CORDILLERA Higher Education Athletic Association is planning to tie up with the Baguio – Benguet Educational Athletic League in the hopes of bridging the two sports association up north.
CHESAA 2013 executive committee president Vladimir Cayabas said the group will try to work out a possible tie up with the BBEAL if the current board approves.
"At the moment we are still planning it but maybe if allowed we could make arrangements with BBEAL, especially that we are not far different from with some of the activities," said Cayabas.
"We can at least look to make a deal sa kanila, our association will always be doing what is better not only for the benefit of one but for the many," Cayabas added.
Member schools of CHESAA are optimistic of the eyed partnership specially if there will be mutual agreements between the two groups.
Cayabas said they are hoping to incorporate the sport activities of both associations particularly basketball and volleyball.
“We’ll try to look at the sports including volleyball and basketball, diyan siguro magkakaroon ng chance to participate ang association namin,” Cyabas said.
“Although we do not have as much as talented athletes gaya nila, maybe through time we can develop," Cayabas added.
Baguio College of Technology, one of the founding members of CHESAA is also a current member of the BBEAL who was allowed to join in 2012.
BCT sports coordinator Orly Basongit meanwhile said if the planned tie up pushes trough, it will benefit both sports.
"We don't look at it as a problem naman since our players for BBEAL and CHESAA ay separate at the same time different," Basongit said.
"Double ang gastos since we have two teams but it is still good since we are able to help our students excel with their chosen sport," Basongit added.
