CEBU, Philippines —  It looks like the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) won’t be that quiet after all.

The league, which cancelled its 20th season, is holding a CESAFI Sports and Coaching Webinar Series starting next month for its coaches, sports administrators, PE teachers and sports enthusiasts with the goal of developing them to become better equipped for sports.

This was bared jointly by CESAFI Commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy Jr. and Southwestern University (SWU)-Phinma athletic director Pio Solon.

Tiukinhoy said during their meeting recently, the CESAFI Board of Trustees has approved his proposal to conduct a series of weekly zoom webinars on sports development program for the CESAFI community.”

“The CESAFI is partnering with the Dagohoy Academy, SWU-Phinma, and Epic Performance and Fitness to conduct our first-ever CESAFI Sports and Coaching webinar series live,” Solon added.

“Sports coaches and strength-and-conditioning coaches play a very important role in promoting sport participation and enhancing the performance of athletes and teams. They guide the children, players, and athletes. As such, coaches have a responsibility to improve and expand their own capabilities on an ongoing basis to fully meet the needs of the athletes they serve,” Solon stressed.

To be held every Saturday beginning August 1 at 3 p.m. via zoom, the webinars  will be shown via Facebook Live on the CESAFI Official page and that of Paulo Agir.

Sebastian Ripoll kicks off the series as he talks about “Long Term Athlete Development”. The other speakers for August are Ed Picson (August 8), Ralph Andrew Ramos (August 15), Bo Perasol (August 22), and Luigi Bercades (August 29). The series will run until October.
