After a break, the Philippine Sports Commission revives its Laro’t Saya sa Parke program in Tagum City and Davao City this weekend.
Lilian Nieva, secretary of PSC chairman William “Butch” Ramirez, said the LSP in Tagum City was held at the Rotary Park on June 15, featuring 10 events.
This included zumba, arnis, athletics, boxing, taekwondo, volleyball, gymnastics, frisbee, wushu and basketball.
“The LSP in Tagum will be held every Saturday morning while it will be on Sundays in Davao City at the People’s Park,” said Nieva.
Davao City’s edition resumed on Father’s Day, with zumba, taekwondo, Muay Thai, wushu and karatedo as focused events.
Laro’t Saya Sa Parke is a park-based and family-oriented sports-for-all program designed as a national campaign to draw the Filipino families into playing and learning sports together. This was inspired by PSC’s mandate to craft “sports for all” programs by virtue of Section 6-A of Republic Act 6847.
Chairman Ramirez, during last December’s culmination activity at People’s Park, vowed to bring the LSP in Davao City, saying that it is the agency’s mandate to create a healthy and vibrant citizenry.
In Davao alone, thousands of senior citizens, middle-aged, young professionals and youth have already benefitted from the program.
