LINGAYEN –- The 2nd edition of the Local Government Unit (LGU) Unity Games will kickoff early January next year.
This was bared by Provincial Sports Development and Management Council’s Executive Director Modesto Operania during the briefing held last week, December 20, attended by sports coordinators and consultants of various municipal and city LGUs in Pangasinan.
Tournament Director Edilberto Abalos said that aside from becoming a regular activity for health and fitness promotion, the Unity Games also helps developing the ‘discipline and maturity’ of Pangasinenses in basketball and volleyball.
The recently concluded Unity Games saw Urdaneta City and Urbiztondo town prevailing as champions in the divisions I and II, respectively while Alaminos City and Burgos town topped the games in volleyball divisions I, and II.
The Espino administration has so far launched the Governor’s Cup – Inter-Town/City Basketball Tournament, Inter-Agency Friendship Games, and the Inter-LGU Unity Games.
Operania told the participants about soft launching of the Pangasinan Sports Academy, and its formal establishment in January next year too. (PIO/MGNO)
