Wednesday, September 4, 2013
IT IS just a few weeks before the 2013 Batang Pinoy Visayas eliminations but Cebu City’s participation is still awaiting the approval of the Cebu City council.
The Cebu City Sports Commission (CCSC)is still working on its final line-up and budget for the event set on Sept. 24-28 in Maasin City, Southern Leyte.
Cebu recently bagged the fourth over-all title in the boys and girls beach volleyball tournament in the Batang Pinoy, which was held ahead of the other events.
The event, for athletes 15 and below, is also known as the Philippine Youth Games and backed by the Philippine Sports Commission.
Five coaches in swimming, arnis, karatedo, boxing and sepak takraw submitted its official line-up for the upcoming event in a meeting last Monday.
Last year, Cebu sent a team to compete in various events in the tournament like tennis and athletics.
