XU plays host to 4th Coaches Forum

COACHES and sports coordinators from different universities and colleges in Mindanao will gather on Saturday, October 7, for the 4th Coaches Forum at the Xavier University Gymnasium in Cagayan de Oro City.

The forum, which is a two-day activity, will have three noted speakers from their respective field of sports specializations.

No less than Dale Evangelista, team captain of the Philippine Water Polo Team to the 2017 SEA Games, will lead the cast of speakers.

It has also Criselda Ilagan, who is a member of the Philippine Association of Sports and Exercise Science.

Noli Ayo, the Convenor of Mindanao Peace Games, will be the third and last speaker.

The annual forum has been a brainchild program of the Xavier University Athletics Office headed by its sports director Vincent Padilla.

“It’s a good camaraderie for us coaches and be updated to anything in the forum especially we have speakers outside,” said Padilla.

The forum is a preparation for the upcoming Mindanao Peace Games and it will serve as a requirement for participating schools in the annual Loyola Cup.
