SUMMER is fast approaching and desiring young athletes are in for a big treat as the Cebu City Sports Commission (CCSC) will be commencing their annual Free Summer Grassroots Training Program this coming April 9.

CCSC chairman Ed Hayco said they are expecting around 10,000 to participate in the different sports clinics of the CCSC.

“So far, 500 coaches and trainers volunteered to help in the program,” Hayco said.

There will be 22 to 24 public schools gyms in the urban barangays that will be chosen to host these clinics. But CCSC has yet to finalize which barangays will be chosen. He said they will come up with the list a couple of weeks from now.

Those who can join are those aged six to 18 years.

The program features 24 sports clinics including arnis, archery, badminton, taekwondo, dancesport, karatedo, futsal, wushu, sepak takraw, table tennis, lawn tennis, beach volleyball, air rifle shooting, chess, track and field, weightlifting, touch rugby, softball/ baseball, boxing, scrabble, pencak silat, volleyball, gymnastics, and muay thai.

“We may be adding one or two more sports but we still have to finalize that,” Hayco added.
