Basketball Clinic in Talakag

My apologies for lagging behind with my blogging for the last 3 months, but life got in the way.  I’ve been away travelling but now that I’m back, welcome to my latest post.

Dayong Mendoza in Red
Dayong Mendoza, Assistant Coach for San Miguel Beer, was in Talakag today to conduct a basketball clinic as part of the LGU’s Youth Sports Programme.  He coached children at Elementary level this morning and continued with the High School level in the afternoon.  The clinic is aimed at developing young players’ basketball skills and techniques, thus raising the standard of our local basketball games in the near future.

Perhaps this experience will inspire them to maybe follow the footsteps of our very own famous Talakagnon celebrity, Bitoy Omolon, who also plays for San Miguel Beer.  Watch out Bitoy, some of these youngsters will soon be after your job!

Thanks to the LGU officials and staff who organized this event, and also to the Bighoop Foundation for their support and specially for inviting Dayong Mendoza and company.
