Sports enthusiasts in Bacoor City, as well as from different barangays in Cavite, are getting hooked to the Learn and Play program organized by the Philippine Sports Commission and held every Saturday inside the spacious Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit.
Big numbers of sports habitués from all walks of life, including those from the local government led BY public information head Josephine Samaniego, participated in aerobics, badminton, arnis and volleyball under the supervision of coaches commissioned by the PSC.
Aerobics had the biggest number of participants with close to 400 male and female doing different routines for four hours.
About four dozen took part in volleyball, 38 in badminton, and 15 in arnis conducted by Grandmaster Vicente Sanchez of Kali Arnis International.
“The number of participants exceeded those who registered. Some didn’t bother to register,” said Alona Quintos, designated by PSC chairman Richie Garcia to supervise the weekly program now on its third Saturday in Kawit.
The unique program was held in partnership with the municipality of Kawit headed by Mayor Reynaldo “Tik” Aguinaldo and Vice Mayor Dr. Paul Aguinaldo.
