MANILA, Philippines — At least three national sports associations have chosen Ilocos Norte for their bubble training in preparation for upcoming international tournaments.

The Philippine Beach Volleyball team has started a training camp in Pagudpud’s Villa Del Mar Ivory Beach Resort in preparation for the Asian Volleyball Confederation Beach Volleyball Continental Cup and the 31st Southeast Asian Games.

Meanwhile, the Philippine National Sepak Takraw squad will be training at the Mariano Marcos State University Sports Complex until Nov. 15 also for the SEA Games

In addition, the Philippine National Beach Handball Team is currently in talks with the Ilocos Norte Sports Development Office (INSDO) on holding bubble training in the province.

“Ilocos Norte is a safe place to undergo bubble training. We have re-started sports activities and formulated risk assessment management under our ‘Play Safe Fearless Program,’” said Ilocos Norte provincial sports development officer Helen Domingo.

Simultaneously, PBA teams the Meralco Bolts and TNT Tropang Giga are also undertaking closed-circuit training at the Ilocos Norte Centennial Arena in Laoag City.

INSDO aided the sports teams by providing proper training venues and facilities, working with local government units for the provision of security and medical services, and conducting weekly athlete status and welfare monitoring.

With these feat in sports, Domingo hopes to further promote Ilocos Norte as one of the safest training hubs in the country.
