To advance and develop the sports culture in Negros Oriental, various sports associations in the province have come together to form the Negros Oriental Sports Confederation (NORSPORTS).
NORSPORTS is composed of leaders of different sports groups encompassing varied sports disciplines, such as basketball, volleyball, baseball and softball, running, swimming, karatedo and taekwondo, among others.
The confederation’s newly-elected first set of officials recently took their oath of office before Governor Roel Degamo.
NORSPORTS aims to expand the province’s sports program dubbed Negros Oriental Sports Development Program (NOSDEP) by conducting more sports activities that will develop the skills of local athletes.
The confederation was formed upon the recommendation of Engr. Dominador Dumalag, Jr. who was earlier tasked by the governor to craft a more comprehensive action plan for NOSDEP.
NORSPORT’s first sports activity, the Governor’s Cup, is set on May 5 and open to athletes from all towns and cities here.
The first Governor’s Cup is seen to hone and prepare the local athletic talents who will participate in the upcoming Philippine National Games (PNG).
Said activity will also serve as a venue where sports leaders can pick potential athletes who will form the province’s core team to compete during the PNG. (RMN-PIA7 Negros Oriental)
