City Division conducts 2015 City Meet

CCAA MEET 2015 OPENING CEREMONIES

November 5, 2015

Maupay nga aga ha iyo nga tanan!

Aadi na liwat kita para ha usa han mga pinakaimportante nga pagkatitirok han durodilain nga eskwelahan ha aton siyudad – an Catbalogan City Athletics Association (CCAA) Meet. Para ha impormasyon han kadam-an, usa ini nga higayon para maiparayaw naton an abilidad ngan kusog han aton mga batan-on nga atleta, nga nagdadara han kangaranan han aton siyudad ha iba pa nga mas dako nga sports events ha regional ngan national level.

Because of this, we can consider these dedicated athletes as our city’s prized jewels that should be cherished, developed, enrich and nurtured, and the CCAA Meet is one of the effective means of accomplishing this.

Pero siring ko pa ha kada sports meet nga naaatenderan ko, labot han paghikadaraog, mas importante an pagkamayda disiplina nga magdaog ha iksakto nga pamaagi. Dapat naton ipakita nga an Team Catbalogan City, diri la magkarit ngan magkusog, kun diri mag-upay liwat an pamatasan.

Always remember that there can be no joy in winning a medal if it is at the expense of losing your morals. Therefore, I bid you to aim for the higher form of victory, which is that achieved by observing fairness, discipline, honesty and respect for the rules of the game.

To raise honourable, virtuous men and women, instead of just good athletes and to develop champions in life, not just in sports, these are our ultimate objectives in holding this event. And when it comes to this endeavour, I am fully confident in the wisdom and capabilities of our City Division in making this a values-centered athletics meet. Naglalaum ako ha iyo guidance ngan sagdon nga ighahatag hini nga kabataan.

However, the success of these ambitious objectives will always depend on the athletes themselves. Sanglit para ha mga atleta, kun uru-istrikto an aton mga coaches ngan referees, huna-hunaa na la nga para liwat ini ha iyo kaupayan. An pagrespeto ha ira mga pamulong ngan pagsunod ha ira ginhahatag nga rules, amo ini an iyo mahihimo para makagkontribwer ha success hini nga event.

Above everything else, the sports meet is supposed to be enjoyable. Despite the serious objectives behind it, it is my biggest wish that everybody will have fun in the course of this three-day event. Let the competition be for love of the sport itself and in turn, let this love for the sport enable each of you to look at your opponents with deep respect. Lastly, may this respect for your opponent lead to strong friendships even after the CCAA Meet has passed.

Good luck to all of you and thank you for having me here.
