Biliran prepares for EVRAA 2019
NAVAL, Biliran- A total of 373 teachers attended and participated a three- day division- based regional training for training and coaching official enhancement.
The activity was aimed at capacitating and enhancing the coaching skills of teachers who will serve as coaches in the forthcoming Eastern Visayas Regional Athletic Association (EVRAA) Meet which is set on April 7-12, 2019 in Ormoc City.
Biliran has improved its ranking during the last three years where it holds the crown in archery for the last five years.
In an interview, Ryan Remandaban, the division sports coordinator, expressed his thanks to the eight mayors of the province for supporting the sports program of Governor Gerardo J. Espina, Jr. and Rep. Roger Espina.
Both officials have been supporting the sports program of the Department of Education (DepEd).
The training covered all games such as archery, baseball, basketball, softball, sepak takraw, taekwondo, volleyball, boxing, chess, bowling, billiard, arnis, among others.
Resource speakers and trainers from other school divisions shared their expertise on the different techniques and strategies in winning the games.
Last December, a special four- training for gymnastics was also conducted for Biliranon gymnasts with trainers from Manila.
It was participated by elementary and secondary pupils and students who aspire to become versatile gymnasts. Biliran wants to restore back gymnastics along with other new games.
