Caraga sports officials to undergo coaching refresher course

By Greg Tataro, Jr.

TANDAG CITY, Surigao del Sur, Aug. 1 (PIA) – As part of the preparations for the upcoming 22nd Caraga Regional Athletic Meet (CRAM), some 4,000 sports officials from 12 different schools divisions under the Department of Education (DepEd) across Caraga region are set to undergo a refresher course in coaching.

Dr. Marilou Dedumo, schools division superintendent, this province, said that Surigao del Sur would be host to the three-day event to be held at Madrid National High School Gymnasium in Madrid town here on August 1 – 3, 2018.

With the theme “Nation-Building through Youth and Sports,” it was learned that Atty. Tonisito Umali, Undersecretary for Legislative Affairs, External Partnerships and School Sports, would be gracing the occasion.

However, according to Dedumo, instead of arriving for the opening program to give his “Inspirational Messages and Keynote Address,” Usec. Umali would be coming on the third and last day of the affair owing to a conflict of schedule.

In his behalf, Dr. Francis Cesar Bringas, the newly installed Caraga DepEd Regional Director would take his place, the DepEd chief here explained. (Radyo Pilipinas-Tandag/PIA-Surigao del Sur)
