ABCamp part two eyed

Jun 25, 2017

BAGUIO CITY – A part two is in the works after the successful staging of the ABCamp volleyball clinic at the Lourdes Subd. Ext. covered court Sunday.
After seven days of learning the basics of volleyball from 11-time Baguio-Benguet Educational Athletic League champion coach Yul Benosa and three of his former top players, the 42 elementary and high school students from University of the Cordilleras High School and several other schools who attended the clinic want a higher learning and even a repeat for some, said co-organizer Sherry Ann Floresca.
“We will definitely go for a second round, the level two,” said the UCHS girls volleyballl team coach who partnered with two of the best players the UC Lady Jaguars have produced: Cindy Benitez and Michelle Remo.
“This is a dream come true for us. Us to teach what we have learned under coach Yul and him leading us to teach these younger players,” said Benitez, the nucleus of the Lady Jaguars that dominated the BBEAL from 2005-2010.
“The three definitely started something and I hope that they will continue doing so,” said Benosa of the camp which taught the basics (or ABCs) to players many of whom have zero knowledge in volleyball.
Floresca, with help from her girls volleyball team led by Aileen Alumno, practically carried the brunt of the task in teaching the basics, particularly the first five days. Benitez and Remo joined her on their free days.  Both are employees of the Benguet Electric Cooperative where they also spearhead the team which is the perennial champion in the Northern Luzon association of electric cooperatives.
Benosa arrived Saturday morning where he spent also the Father’s Day with the 42 kids who took advantage of his presence. Benosa teaches physical education in Pasay City and is also the head of officiating of the Philippine Volleyball Federation which officiated the University Athletic Association of the Philippines volleyball. In fact, he was one of the main referees of the De La Salle University-Ateneo de Manila finals, where the former won.
Floresca said that they are eyeing the third week of July for the second part which will both have beginners and level two clinics. However, it will be only four days, the last three days with Benosa leading them.
“We need to follow up on what they learned to improve their skills. Many of these kids will definitely improve as they continue training,” said the BBEAL winning coach from 2003 until 2010.
“We will, however, have to increase a bit on the entry fee. Maybe we will have a different package that will entitle the participants get give aways aside from t-shirt,” added the mathematics instructor.
The week-long clinic also saw former UC Jaguars setter Mau Agudia helping. PML / ABN
