PSC’s Summer Youth Basketball Tournament opens in Tondo



The Philippine Sports Commission opened the 2018 Summer Youth Basketball Tournament last April 22 in Tondo, Manila with 120 children participating.



PSC Commissioner Arnold G. Agustin led the opening ceremonies of the event which started with a parade followed by a short talk by Agustin. “Sa paglalaro, hindi lamang lakas ang nadedevelop, maging ang talino ay kabahagi nito, kaya’t maging matalino nawa kayo.



Ang mga bagay na mali, ay huwag ninyong gawin, at maging ehemplo kayo ng mga atletang isinasapuso ang paggawa ng tama”, Commissioner Agustin said in his inspirational message to the participants.



He also said that as an athlete, it is important to take pride in what you do, “do good and you will be successful.”



The SYB2018 will be held every Saturday and Sunday from April 22 to June 9. It aims to engage the youth of Tondo in basketball tournaments to instill discipline, develop self-confidence and discourage them from using prohibited drugs.
