Coaches' forum set in Iligan City

THE Mindanao Peace Games (MPG) will hold eight coaches' forum in Mindanao that will start at the Iligan Medical Center College on Saturday, August 12.

Celina Simone Jaldon, representing Ateneo de Davao University (Addu), bared this on behalf of MPG main convener Noli Ayo on Friday, August 11, during the Davao Sportwriters Association Forum at NCCC Mall B3 Family Room.

Jaldon said the two-day affair will feature series of talks and workshop with the Philippine Association for Sports and Exercise Sciences under the supervision of its president Jeffrey Pagaduan.

Lawyer Rebo Saguisag, Gang Badoy and Mary Ann Reyes, secretary general of Philippine Finswimming Federation, are the resource speakers.

MPG has been holding coaches’ forum since it was founded in 2015.

"We have this forum because we always emphasize the importance of being able to share stories. MPG is not just about the games but also to develop values and character formation of the athletes and coaches," Jaldon said.
