Basketball Clinic kicks off in Balubad

 

BALUBAD, Marikina – Right before dawn breaks, 60 kids from Balubad, Marikina trooped to the Nangka Covered Court for the Saturday Morning Sports Clinic on basketball conducted by International Needs Philippines in coordination with St. Stephen’s High School and Athletes in Action last June 07, 2014. 

The goal of the activity is to promote increased physical activity and implement values formation among INCAP and non-INCAP children in the community through sports and teamwork.  

The event was formally opened by INPH Executive Director Julio Concepcion in his welcoming remarks about the importance of sportsmanship and having fun. Josephine San Jose, the head of Sponsorship program, hosted the one-day culmination of the program. 

Boys and girls were taught basic plays and techniques of the Philippines’ #1 sport through shooting, dribbling, blocking and footwork drills by the good coaches from University of the East. After the drills, a friendly game was conducted in the side of the boys and girls, assisted and umpired by the respective coaches. 

 

Joining the kids are Bena and Ronji  Tanielu who are currently in the Philippines for INPH’s short-term mission program. The basketball clinic is one of many activities they will participate in during their one-week stay of immersion and exposure to the areas under INPH. Ronji, a big fan of basketball himself, encouraged the kids to excel in any sport or endeavour they wish to dedicate themselves for the glory of the Lord. 

Lim Eng Peng, a professor from St. Stephen’s Highschool, initiated a small fellowship to remind the kids about the importance of faith, hope and love for the Creator, the timeless triad that makes a true Christian. 

Aside from teaching the sports, the Sports Clinic is also part of a developing project helmed by Athletes in Action to seed skilled young players from the streets for a rigorous training of professional basketball and grant them the opportunity to play in the hard court.
