Batang Pinoy moves up north
Baguio City will have the province of Benguet as its co-host in this year’s staging of the Batang Pinoy National Championship on 15 to 21 September.
The partnership was confirmed at the signing of the memorandum of agreement between Philippine Sports Commission Commissioner Celia Kiram, Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan and Benguet Provincial Governor Crescencio C. Pacalso yesterday at the Fortune Hong Kong Seafood Restaurant, Baguio City.
“We are ready and we are very thankful for the PSC for choosing Baguio City and Benguet to host the Batang Pinoy national championships,” Domogan said.
Governor Pacalso echoed this sentiment and said: “It’s an honor for Benguet to be part of one of the biggest sporting event in the country.”
“The collaboration will help cater to the 6,500 participating athletes in Batang Pinoy. The PSC is thankful that both our co-hosts have met the requirements of the games,” Kiram said.
The national championships will have 21 sports held in Baguio City and six sports in the province of Benguet, with over 1,000 medals at stake.
The PSC’s event for in and out-of-school school youth, 15-year-old and below, will take place in 29 playing venues including the Baguio Athletic Bowl, Baguio swimming pool facility, University of the Philippines Baguio, University of the Cordilleras gymnasium, Saint Louis University, Beneco Multi-Purpose Hall and Engineer’s Hill covered court.
