LIMANG-DAAN na kalahok ang tumanggap ng ‘coaching lectures’ sa para-powerlifting, para-badminton, para-cycling, football 5-a-side at sitting volleyball sa ikalawang edisyon ng Philippine Sports Commission Para Sports Coaching Webinar Series.
Ang limang araw ng coaching program na nagsimula noong Lunes ay nakasentro sa coaches at expert practitioners na nagbahagi ng fundamental coaching at ekperyensa sa limang para sport disciplines, sa pakikipagtulungan ng Philippine Sports Association for the Differently Abled (PHILSPADA) at ng Philippine Paralympic Committee (PPC).
“After our first successful edition of our coaching webinar last year, we decided to bring it back to introduce new para-sports and boost the knowledge of our coaches and trainers in para-sports,” pahayag ni PSC Oversight Commissioner for para-athletes Arnold Agustin.
Pinasinayaan ni PHILSPADA at PPC President Michael Barredo ang unang araw ng webinar series at napag-usapan dun ang kasaysayan at foundation of para-sports sa bansa, kasama sina PPC Secretary-General Walter Torres at Officer-in-Charge Tricia Rana.
“We thank our active partners in PHILSPADA and PPC for supporting this event that will surely strengthen our programs,” dagdag ni Agustin.
“Participants who completed the webinar series will be awarded with a certificate, official shirt, an official Pilipinas Para Games (PPG) medal and a compiled module from the webinars,” sabi ni PPG Project Director Jan Errol Facundo.
Nung nakaraang taon, 500 partisipante ang sumali sa first edition ng webinar series kasama ang goal ball, para-swimming, wheelchair basketball, para-athletics, at para-table tennis na tampok sa para-sports mula Oktubre 9 hanggang 15.
