Town revamps sports council
by Jimmy K. Laking

The capital town of La Trinidad has reorganized its sports development council in cognizance of the municipality’s emerging role as sports center in the region.

“The sports council shall take the lead in the conduct of sports activities and programs both for the grassroots and the community at large,” said Mayor Edna Tabanda who will sit as chair.

The reorganization of the sports council is in compliance with the mandate of the Local Government Code that stressed the need to conduct an annual activity that will feature traditional sports and disciplines for the physical well-being of the people.

Tabanda said the conduct of sports activities is an effective way of encouraging solidarity and healthier relations between and among the people of La Trinidad.

Brico Santig, a member of the council and manager of the Highland Boxing Gym, said competitive sports not only promote brotherhood, camaraderie, and goodwill but they also provide venues for the discovery of young talents.

The capital town is host to various sports and health clubs and has been the venue for regional athletic competitions as well regional boxing events.

The reorganized sports council is composed of C/Insp. Byron Allatog (vice chair), Warden Baltazar (secretary general) and councilors Francis Lee, Joey Marrero, Teddy Quintos, as well as Dr. Esther Rivera, Brigitte Ulep, Teddy Walang, Josephine Aben, Saturnino Labbag, Antonio Cadag, James Malaya, Josephine Garwageo, Frael Aquino, Santig, Engr. Oliver Taule, Marie Glo Dawagui, and Dorris Lacaman as members.

The secretariat is comprised of Christopher Bansan, George Babsaay, Victoria Gale Juanito, and Veronica Bendy.

Among other things, the council is tasked to formulate a blueprint (short, medium, and long term) for sectoral sports based on the “sports for all” national policy and to come up with a year-round calendar of sports activities for the community.
