THE Min­danao Peace Games (MPG) 2018 will kick off with a quar­terly lead­er­ship meet­ing next month at the Ate­neo de Davao Univer­sity (Addu) in prepa­ra­tion for its whole-year round pro­gram of cre­at­ing lead­ers and pro­vid­ing be­yond sports ex­pe­ri­ence to as­pir­ing lead­ers.

MPG con­vener Noli Ayo, who is also the ath­let­ics di­rec­tor of Addu, in Thurs­day’s Davao Sportswrit­ers As­so­ci­a­tion (DSA) Fo­rum held at the An­nex of SM City Davao, said the quar­terly lead­er­ship meet­ing will be at­tended by the sports lead­ers of the 14 MPG mem­ber schools in Min­danao who will also fi­nal­ize the com­plete set of pro­grams for 2018.

“We will also sit down with prom­i­nent lead­ers who will be able to in­spire our as­pir­ing lead­ers and coaches,” Ayo said, who is root­ing for Rio Olympics weightlift­ing sil­ver medal­ist Hidi­lyn Diaz to grace the meet­ing.

Ayo said the quar­terly meet­ing in May will be fol­lowed by the 3rd Dis­cov­ery Suites lead­er­ship pro­gram that will be hosted at the Dis­cover Suites in Or­ti­gas, Metro Manila.

“We in­vited four new schools to join the lead­er­ship pro­gram. If they show up they will prob­a­bly be­come our new mem­bers,” Ayo said, per­tain­ing to Com­postela Val­ley State Col­lege, Notre Dame of Jolo Col­lege, Ra­mon Magsaysay Me­mo­rial Col­lege of Gen­eral San­tos City and Claret Col­lege of Is­abela, Basi­lan.

“We will be send­ing team cap­tains to join the Lead­er­ship Sum­mit that will have group dy­nam­ics, talks on ef­fects of lead­er­ship that will be capped with a for­mal din­ner to em­pha­size the be­yond sports ex­pe­ri­ence as­pi­ra­tion of MPG,” he said.

In Au­gust, they will hold their first-ever MPG Coaches Con­ven­tion.

“We al­ready had 24 coaches’ meet­ing for the past years and in­stead of go­ing to dif­fer­ent places like the past meet­ings, we plan to bring them all to­gether in one coaches’ con­ven­tion,” Ayo added.

The MPG 2018 games will open in Oc­to­ber in FSUU in Bu­tuan City.
