ILOILO City – In partnership with the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC), the city government will offer free sports lessons at the public plaza of La Paz district every Saturday beginning July 2 from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m.

Dubbed as “Laro’t Saya sa Parke,” the endeavor encourages the public doing exercises in public plazas to venture into other sports.

“Every week, especially when there are no classes, those who want to maintain a fit and healthy body are doing a jog or run at our plaza. Through this Laro’t Saya sa Parke, they will be encouraged to try other sports since this is for free,” said sports and development officer Rommel Castro.

He noted all the facilities or venue needed are present at La Paz plaza.

Among the sports to be offered are basketball, tennis, football, arnis, wushu, volleyball, taekwondo, and aero zumba.

Castro said the PSC will be the one to pay for trainers.

The activities will run until 2018. (Iloilo City PIO/PN)
