0 0

ANOTHER busy year for the swimming community in the grassroots level.

The Swim League Philippines (SLP) on Thursday announced the program of tournaments for the first half of the year in both short ang long course events nationwide including the pre-qualifying selection for members of the Philippine Team that will send to two international competitions.

SLP president Fred Ancheta said young swimmers from Mindanao will have the opportunity to show their talents with the holding of the Mindanao Swim Series 1-Davao Del Sur Cup on January 14-15 in Davao del Sur Sports Complex, Brgy. Matti, Digos City.

Ancheta said the two-day tournament is a pre-qualifying selection for the coming Middle East Open in Dubai in July as well as preparation for SLP’s new role to form a team that will send to Bangkok and the Universiade Games.

“We value our Mindanao swimmers. This will prove that they’re never forgotten and neglected by the SLP,” said Ancheta.

“Ginawa natin na tayo na ang lumapit sa ating mga kapatid sa Mindanao para hindi na rin sila gumasta ng malaki kung magpupunta pa sila sa Manila para makasali sa pre-qualifying event para sa ating international team. Ganito rin ang gagawin namin sa mga kasama natin na nasa Visayas,” he added.

The hardworking SLP chief said the tournaments is open to all swimmers and swimming clubs and organization regardless of their affiliation as he reinstated that SLP vision is grassroots development through unity.

“Lahat puwedeng sumali. Kahit anong swimming club or organization ang affiliations, walang maiiwan. Ang purpose natin ay sports development kaya tayong magkaisa at hindi magkawatak-watak,” Ancheta said.

“Please join and get the chance to be a part of Team Philippines. We bring that chance closer to you.”
