Precinct 5 community to launch sports program

MEMBERS of the Precinct 5 community will launch a sports program for the youth.

They will begin by opening a basketball league on Saturday at the Kagman Community Center basketball court.

Joe Sanchez, one of the league organizers said they want to call their effort, a Precinct 5 Sports Program.

At 4 p.m. on Saturday, they the basketball league with six teams participating will kick off at the community’s basketball court.

With the help of Precinct 5 Represenatives Lorenzo I. Deleon Guerrero and Frank Agugon, and other Precinct 5 residents, former Reps. Rosiky Camacho, and Ramon S. Basa, John Maratita and Sonny Flores, the sports program, Sanchez is hopefully going to be a success.

“We are doing this because nowadays, we see a lot youth just sitting down and doing nothing. It touches our heart that we want to do something about it,” Sanchez said.

The teams that are participating in the league are from Kagman I, Kagman II, Kagman III, Kagman IV, As Teo and Kannat Tabla, he said.

Following the opening ceremony, the first game will start at 4:30 p.m., and the second game at 5 p.m.

This idea, he said came up since October when Precinct 5 community members had the chance to meet and discuss the youth.

Agreeing to help the kids in Precinct 5, the Sanchez and other community decided to “Let’s do it for the Kids.”

Sanchez wants to thank the following sponsors for making their program possible: Kagman Mobil Oil, Brother Market, Kagman New Market and Kagman CYC Market.

In doing this, Sanchez said “we want to be a role model for other precincts.”
