TUBOD, Lanao del Norte -- At least 58 elementary public school teachers from different municipalities in this province took part in a two-day training designed for football coaches on September 8 and 9 at the Mindanao Civic Center (MCC) Football Field in Barangay Sagadan here.
The free workshop is part of Governor Khalid Dimaporo’s “Kabataan Sigurado” program.
“Football is one sport where Filipinos can excel and can compete against the world’s best if given the right training and international exposure. Here in Lanao del Norte, we’re starting at the grassroots level to discover football talents that we train and develop to become future football stars,” said Provincial Information Officer Lyndon Calica.
The two-day training taught local coaches effective offensive and defensive strategies for the game of football as well as some teaching techniques to enable them to train young players.
The event was coordinated by the Provincial Community Affairs Office through its municipal coordinators.
The participants were given free snacks and meals and free transportation to their training venue.
Also present during the training’s opening program was Sittie Aminah Dimaporo who represented Governor Dimaporo.
On September 22, an inter-school football tournament is set to be held at the MCC football field, to be participated by elementary students of Lanao del Norte. (PR)
