Summer Basketball League

posted May 21, 2011, 3:48 AM by Barangay Tortugas
One of the things that the youth in our area get very excited about is the basketball league game. Though it's not easy to do this, Sangguniang Kabataan, led by SK Chairman Glen Mar decided to go ahead with the plan to give happiness to the youth during the school vacation. This started on the 14th May 2011 with a long parade of registered basketball teams, followed by a short program to officially open the games!

One of the objectives of this league is to discourage the youth from bad habits but most of all, give them an opportunity to find or have the chance to train and become world class players. Also, it will give them a better chance of winning awards at City Wide Meet, CLARA and National Games.

The objectives of this game prove to be much better than the previous competition, as it is well planned. For this, Punong Barangay Vic Baluyot Jnr is all praises for the Sangguniang Kabataan. Likewise, the Sangguniang Barangay of Tortugas shows their full support for the Sangguniang Kabataan.

The Sangguiniang Kabataan and the Sangguiniang Barangay of Tortugas would like to thank the following people for making the Summer Basketball League possible. Big thanks to Mayor Joet Garcia, Vice Mayor Noel Valdencanas, all the City Councilors, Governor Tet Garcia and Congressman Abet Garcia for their never ending support to all worthwhile Barangay programs. More Power to all!
