DCAA eyes more Palaro qualifiers

Thursday, February 11, 2016

altDAVAO City Athletic Association's (DCAA) 600-member delegation of athletes, coaches, chaperons and technical officials will gather for the official send-off rites set at 3 p.m. today at the Davao City National High School (DCNHS).
Davao City Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte was invited to grace the send-off ceremonies along with Davao City Councilor Mabel Sunga Acosta.
The Dabawenyos, who wrapped up their training here, will board Metro Shuttle buses and will leave at 7:30 a.m., Saturday for Tagum City that will host the Davao Region Athletic Association (Davraa) Meet 2016, slated Feb. 14 to 19, where slots to the 2016 Palarong Pambansa are up for grabs.
Department of Education (DepEd) Davao City division sports coordinator Alma Cifra, in an interview with Sun.Star SuperBalita Davao Wednesday, said they seek more Palaro slots this year since the city only produced 80 Palaro qualifiers last year.
She said there is no doubt that the city will harvest golds and defend its overall title. She, however, added: "Dapat namo ma-increase ang number of qualifiers nato sa Palaro (We must increase our number of Palaro qualifiers)."
Thus, Cifra said Superintendent Dr. Maria Ines C. Asuncion, Ceso 6 is closely monitoring the athletes and holding regular meetings with the coaches.
Cifra also said in the vernacular, "Our DCAA delegation is 100 percent ready".
DCAA's Davraa stint has a P5.8 million budget for meals, transportation, uniforms and other operational expenses.
The city's delegation will be billeted at the La Filipina National High School in Tagum City.
Every year, Davao City has the biggest number of athletes in the Palarong Pambansa-bound Davraa delegation.
Davao del Norte hosted the 2015 Palarong Pambansa but Davraa finished ninth overall with 13 gold medals, 23 silvers and 30 bronzes.
