Coaches Seminar-Training

As Basketball Coaches Association of the Philippines (BCAP) - Batangas Chapter coordinator,  I led several member-coaches from Batangas (and Laguna) to the recently concluded Coaches Seminar-Training held at the historic Rizal Memorial Coliseum last February 28 - March 1.  Shown in the picture at right are the BCAP-Batangas Chapter coaches with legendary Korean shooting star, Shin Dong Pa, now in his early 60s  He came with his coach Yoo Hee Hyung, in his late 60s, yet still able to demonstrate for filipino coaches the Korean-style of basketball.

 Other prominent resource persons,  who shared their God-given talents in coaching big-time basketball included Purefoods' head coach Ryan Gregorio (who lost the following Sunday to Sta. Lucia's Boyet Fernandez), Alaska's Tim Cone,  my good friend Bingky Favis of Coca Cola, and the fiery (on court) but very gentle (off-court) Red Bull Coach Yeng Guiao.  Mr. Lazaro, therapist of TNT lectured on sports medicine.

It was a time for fellowship with coaches coming from all over the Philippines -- Cebu, Davao, Zamboanga, Bicol, and even Kalinga-Apayao,  and of course, Metro Manila.  Among old friends I met were ex-Blades Ralph Rivera and Dennis Madrid,  Coaches Eric Gonzales and Nash Racela.  Of course,  Coach Chito Narvasa (BCAP President) and his able assistants Coaches Tanny Gonzales (Sec-Gen) and Alfrancis Chua were there to facilitate the whole procedure.  I was asked to deliver the invocation at the first day.  I also helped in moderating the Q & A with Coach Tim Cone, and read the citation for him.
