Together with other participants from Singapore and Malaysia, the kids, aged 10-12 years old, received in-depth training revolving around pitch and classroom sessions from Barca Academy coaches who were flown down to Malaysia specifically for the camp.The participants consisted of James Philip Domens, 11 years old, Pasig City; Charles Cedrick Lajom, 12, Mandaluyong City; Nazer Merendad, 11, Mandaluyong City; Tadashi Rysuei Omiya, 11, Montalban, Rizal; Angelane Joy Ortega, 12, San Carlos City; Elijah Raj Pabalete, 11, San Carlos City; Caitlin Clare Panilan, 10, Quezon City; Roy Panunciar Jr., 11, San Carlos City; Michaella Ann Tolones, 12, Zamboanga City; Winceyette Louise Aleichem Tumala, 12, San Carlos City; Zhaira Gail Velasco, 12, San Carlos City; and Joeny Yap, 11, Batangas City.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back Chriss“Football is not just a game but an overwhelmingly positive force that can change the lives of these young athletes.  That is what we want to do with our sports program.  We want to inspire these financially-challenged children to be the best they can be and be instrumental in giving them a brighter future by opening opportunities to them in the sport that they love,” said Miguel Bermundo, Director for Globe Citizenship and Advocacy Marketing.To scout for these talented players, Globe held football clinics in different parts of the country where the kids were taught how to play football the proper way.  Through the clinics which Globe holds every year, TM FPSB is also able to help ingrain in the kids the timeless values of sportsmanship such as teamwork and discipline. This way, they would be able to take responsibility for their actions and not fall into the trap of blaming their opponents for mistakes and failures. The opportunity to train in Malaysia is an added benefit for the kids who have the right skills and aptitude for the game.  This also brings them closer to their dreams and provides them with a chance to help their families through scholarships as they excel in the sport.“Astro Kem Bola is a regional effort by Yayasan Astro Kasih, in providing an opportunity to children to excel in football. The program provides equal opportunity to girls and boys and has positively impacted more than 17,000  children since its inception in 2012,” said Datuk David Yap, Director of Community Affairs, Astro.“The Advanced Training camp in Kuala Lumpur presented the participants with a valuable insight into what professional football training is like. We hope the priceless experience of training under the eyes of world-class coaches will inspire them to fulfill their sporting goals. Thanks to our regional partners like Globe, we are confident that the reach of the Astro Kem Bola program can extend even further to more children from underserved communities in the Philippines. Astro hopes this opportunity will be a stepping stone for children in the region to achieve greater heights for themselves, as well as their respective nations,” he concluded.Since 2016, Globe has been working with Yayasan Astro Kasih; the corporate foundation and corporate social responsibility arm of Astro, a Malaysian media and entertainment company with presence in the ASEAN region, via their Astro Kem Bola program. This initiative is to promote sports development and the intellectual, emotional, and social enrichment of the young people who want to become good in it. Selected girls and boys from the Advanced Training camp will have a chance to further their training with Barca Academy; the renowned youth academy of Futbol Club Barcelona in Spain for 10 days later this year.“I learned a lot of things about football such as how to quickly play the ball and move it around. I became adept in controlling the ball and in passing it to the right team player.

Raji, Smith Raise Issue on Election Guideline ‘Violation’

first_imgThe favorite LFA presidential candidate, Mustapha Raji, and outgoing LFA President Musa Bility.Two stakeholders have raised serious issues on what they described as ‘election guideline violations’ by the LFA Elections Committee in the just concluded qualification of presidential and executive committee members for the March 22 elections in Buchannan, Grand Bassa County.The two men said the LFA must tackle the ‘violation’ to avoid any interference by Confederation of African Football (CAF) and the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA).Mustpaha Raji told the Daily Observer that the Elections Committee violated the Electoral Code and the New Approved Statutes by stating that, “No single club shall nominate more than one aspirant for each of the two vice presidential posts and no club shall nominate more than 10 aspirants for the executive committee.”Raji said the LFA’s Approved Statutes, Article 58.2 says: No one (1) member shall propose two (2) or more candidates,” which he said should have been sufficient for the process.The LISCR FC boss argued that, Article 9 of the LFA Electoral Code acknowledges the primacy of the statutes when it states: “The eligibility criteria are defined by the code and the LFA statutes and must comply with the statutes and regulations of FIFA.”He added: “The Executive Committee, which is the highest decision body in the absence of Congress, must address this violation.”He further quoted FIFA electoral code article 26 which says: “Failure by the association (member) to apply the principles of this code shall be considered a serious violation of the provisions of article 13 of the FIFA Statutes…”Georgian FC President (candidate for the EC), Wilmot Smith called on the LFA to set the records straight by correcting the ‘violation.”Mr. Smith said the alarm on the ‘violation’ clearly demonstrates “leadership and honesty and I don’t see a divorce from fraternity by raising the flag and calling for an emergency meeting to tackle the breach.”The LFA says as per the Statutes and Electoral Code, which were duly approved recently by an Extraordinary Congress in Monrovia, it is obliged to protect the independence of the Committee irrespective of subjective views.Elections Committee Chairman Malcolm Joseph told the Daily Observer yesterday that there are provisions on the process and anyone who is not satisfied must take advantage over them.The final lists of candidates are: M. Hassan A. Bility, President; Musa Shannon and Sekou Konneh; Vice President for Administration, Cassell A. Kuoh, Sr., Vice President for Operations.Executive Committee Women Seat: Ciata Bishop and Executive Committee Members include: Ansu V. S. Dulleh, J. Allan Klayee, Dee-Maxwell Kemeyah, Sr., Samuel Y. Karn,  Rochell G. D. Woodson,  D. Sheba Brown,  Wallace Weiah and S. Matthew P. Smith. Others are Cyrus Wright, Wilmot Smith, Mustapha Raji, Adolphus Harmon, Korpo Kpoto, Yanqueh S. Borsay, Urias Glaybo, Lemuel Sherman and Samuel Ashley.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
