30 join ASAP coaching seminar in Davao
THIRTY coaches and team managers attended the one-day coaching seminar conducted by the Aquatic Sports Association of the Phils. (ASAP) last Sunday at the Ladislawa Country Club in Davao City.
Veteran coach Jun Rodriguez and seven others from the First United Davao City Swim Club had the biggest attendance in the free seminar conducted by ASAP secretary general and Olympian Susan Papa and former national coach-turned technical staff Edgar Galeno.
The Department of Education (DepEd) had eight representatives – Fleecy Jane Lungay, Jerry Kasim, Mary Ann Guerra, Grade Olalo, Danilo Olalo, Ghea Loregas, Myrna Formoso and Rose Uyan of Mati,
The other participants were Herbi Chang of Ladislawa Country Club, Emily Bandiola of Holy Child School of Davao, Gemma Smart of Notre Dame of Marbel University-IBED, Rey Flores, Mark Jude Corpuz of Aqua Tierra Swim Team-Davao, Kemson Alpad of Kim Alpad Swim Club-Koronadala City, Richard Ampao of TESDA 12; Charito Evangelista, Rael Diaz, Lanie Evangelista, Edwin Lago, Omar de Guzman, Roy Penesios, Racky Acac, Jona Fado and Lito delos Reyes, all of the organizing Evangelista Aquatics and Sports Management Inc. (EASMI).
The free seminar was sponsored by EASMI CEO and ASAP Region 11 director Darren Evangelista.
ASAP is a national swimming association that is already being supported by the Philippine Sports Commission. It has already attended two international swimming events and will next send a delegation in Bangkok this week.
ASAP wants to give everyone a chance to compete in swimming. It has invited the outstanding swimmers in the recent first Alagang Supermom Bisolvon Inter-School Swimming Competition held last Dec. 5-6 at the Ladislawa Country Club in Davao City.
One of them is 11-year old Dara Clariza Evangelista of the Davao Wisdom Academy, who dominated the girls 10 to 12 years old event. She won three gold medals in the 50-meter butterfly, 50-m backstroke and 500-meter freestyle.
The five-foot-seven Grade Five student also bagged two silvers in the 100-m individual medley and 50-meter breaststroke.
To show their gratitude for welcoming them in Davao, ASAP donated free softwares for the ASAP XI members to be used for their team and in organizing their own competitions.
“We are giving these softwares for free only unlike in the other swimming group were they will be charging you,” Galeno said..
ASAP is also only asking a very minimal membership fee of P200 for swimmers, P300 for coaches and P500 for teams or clubs.

  1. Hi!

    How can we join ASAP-XI? We are planning to organize a summer swimming clinic here in Toril. Can you help us organize the event? Is there an accredited coach we can hire?

    Thank you for your reply.
