FILIPINO PADDLERS COME TOGETHER AS THE TRITON-PHILIPPINE COLLEGIATE LEAGUE DRAGON BOAT CUP MAKE A SPLASHING DEBUT
Manila City, Philippines －It could have been a rainy whole day affair, but the weather and all the other elements came through last Saturday for a successful 1st Triton-Philippine Collegiate League (PCL) Dragon Boat Cup held at the Baywalk, Roxas Boulevard, Manila Bay.
The Dragon Boat Cup, organized by the PCL in partnership with the internationally seasoned Triton Dragon Boat Racing Team, which featured the best collegiate dragon boat teams and regular teams in the country started off with a Taoist priest blessing the day by performing the eye-dotting ceremony on a dragon boat with Triton President Carol Salonga, PCL Organizer Geraldine Bernardo, International Dragon Boat Federation certified Technical Official Marcia Cristobal, and Philippine Dragon Boat Federation Vice President Aaron Garcia.
At 6 am, the two-pronged event that comprised of 32 heats and 13 regular and collegiate teams formally kicked off, concluding the day by 5pm with triumphant finishers and unforgettable moments.
Here are the winners per race category, courtesy of Triton:
Cebu-based PADS Adaptive Dragon Boat Racing Team and winner of the 2017 Hongkong International Dragonboat Carnival in the Paradragon division, teamed up with the ICanServe Cebu breast cancer survivors to emerge as 4th overall winners.
Free water, eggs, and bananas donated by the Triton members past and present were given away to the competing teams. Food stalls from the likes of Kowloon House, Native Plate, and Pizza Hut, among others dotted the place, while fun activities and side attractions, such as all-day music from up and coming bands, a battle rope challenge, and merchandise booths also kept the venue crawling with fans and spectators.
As part of their 8th year anniversary, which fell exactly on July 1, Triton had planned for this event to be able to give back to the sport that had brought the TRITONes together, as well as to serve fellow paddlers and the entire dragon boat community. Part of the proceeds goes to their chosen charity of orphans and abused children.
Meanwhile, school spirit was also palpable as teams chanted their respective cheers in the PCL collegiate team races. This is in line with the desire to expand to other team sports and individual sports and there are already talks for a repeat event within the year for a more expansive collegiate summer tournament. For inquiries on how to form your collegiate or school club, email Ice Lim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event was in cooperation with Grosby–Brazilea, Sun Life Financial and Solido. Other sponsors include the Krooberg, MMP Awards Specialist, CIGCI United Printing, Pixel Pro, Mad Hatter and PACE Magazine x Freyo. Special thanks to the MMDA, the City of Manila, Manila Tourism & Cultural Affairs Bureau, Philippine Star and the Philippine Red Cross. Other sponsors who provided in kind support are Pizza Hut, Team Titans, Suy Sing, Native Plate.
Manila City, Philippines － Featuring the best collegiate dragon boat teams as well as regular teams from all over the archipelago, the Philippine Collegiate League (PCL), in partnership with the internationally seasoned Triton Dragon Boat Racing Team, will be holding the 1st Triton-Philippine Collegiate League (PCL) Dragon Boat Cup, on July 1, 6AM to 4PM, at the Baywalk, Roxas Boulevard, Manila Bay, in the nation’s capital.
With at least (10) collegiate teams from different colleges and universities expected to join the 2-pronged event with the regular teams, the Triton-PCL Dragon Boat Cup aims to foster the growth and development of dragon boat racing in the country.
Triton, which took home a Silver medal in the 200-meter International Women’s Small Boat Competition at the recently concluded Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Carnival last June 4, hopes to emulate their international experiences in the 1st Triton-PCL Dragon Boat Cup. “We want the teams to experience the hospitality that we’ve experienced abroad. We promise that the event will be festive and that everyone will have a good time,” says Event Organization Logistics Head Siosan Baysa.
Triton has planned and prepared for this event for their 8th year anniversary, falling exactly on July 1, to be able to give back to the sport that has brought the TRITONes together. Now, to serve fellow paddlers and the entire dragon boat community, part of the proceeds from the event goes to their chosen charity of orphans and abused children.
The collegiate category of the Dragon Boat Cup comes as a promising follow-up to last year’s successful PCL Women’s Basketball tournament – created by national basketball Perlas Pilipinas’ star player Ewon Arayi. And with the rising popularity of dragon boating worldwide, this bonafide summer league looks to put the water sport front and center on local stage to take the level of competition even higher for young Filipino paddlers. Likewise, the PCL looks to expand to other team sports and individual sports as a venue for summer competitions.
UPDATES: Triton will now be hosting four (4) race events for regular dragon boat crews, namely:
- Small Boat 250 meters (Women)
- Small Boat 250 meters (Open)
- Small Boat 250 meters (Mixed)
- Standard Boat 250 meters (Mixed)
Meanwhile, PCL has a total of four (4) events as well for collegiate dragon boat crews, namely:
- Small Boat 250 meters (Open)
- Small Boat 500 meters (Open)

May 19, 2017 － Taiwan played host to sporting forums this past May 6-7, 2017 in Taipei as part of the 106th National Intercollegiate Athletic Games that was held at National Taiwan University. Several industry and academic thought leaders presented a wide range of topics over two days of International Forums.
Edgar C. Tejerero, President of SM Lifestyle Entertainment Inc., presented new trends in Sport Industry Management. In particular, Tejerero discussed the Facility Management and Operations of the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena in Pasay City, Philippines, one of the region’s premier sporting complexes. Tejerero presented not only the way that MOA Arena redefined the Philippine sporting landscape when it opened in June of 2012, he also went into an in-depth exploration of why the facilities were designed in such a way.
A multi-faceted facility, MOA Arena is able to hold world-class sporting events as well as large corporate conferences. On top of that, the MOA Arena also caters to music lovers as an advanced concert site in the country. The design of the facility allows it to generate income from these three (3) primary revenue streams: Sport Events, Corporate Events, and Music Festivities. Tejerero also explained the intricate and integrated system of production, project management, event promotion, food service, ticketing, and security that goes into each and every event that the MOA Arena hosts.
Tejerero’s speech ended with a discussion about a challenge that MOA Arena currently faces: with the three main revenue streams available for his facility, it seems that per-capita expenditure at hosted sporting events is quite low (A five-year average of just above 500 pesos per person.) compared with per-capita expenditure for Music Festivals and Concerts. (Approximately PHP 3,900 per person over the same 5-year period.) The MOA Arena has always been intended for sporting events and as such, its occupancy figures are at 67% per year on such events. With Music Festivals and Concerts only accounting for 29% occupancy figures, this disparity in per-capita expenditure has led to a challenge in balancing corporate profitability and growth with the needs of the Filipino sporting audience.
Several other notable speakers also shared their expertise on various topics and challenges present in the sporting field. Dr. Paul Jonson from the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia, spoke about the importance of Sport Governance Structures in the development of National Sport Programs. Dr. Jonson also challenged the traditional view that countries should focus their spending only on “elite” athletes, presenting data that grassroots development and a participative focus actually benefit a country’s sport culture greater in the long run. Speakers such as Dr. Harry Kwon from Chung-Ang University in South Korea spoke about developmental strategies in collegiate athletics in his country. Dr. Kwon presented the myriad problems associated with a sporting system designed to reward coaches and parents for the athletic performance of their athletes without the same regard for the athlete’s well-being and long-term development. Dr. Kwon presented a holistic approach in the development of student-athletes, particularly giving emphasis on preparing for career education and re-socialization after their athletic careers commence.
The Philippines held its own in the forums that were held alongside the 106th National Intercollegiate Athletic Games. It sent three other speakers aside from Tejerero to speak about various challenges and best practices in the Philippine Sport Scene, as well as a delegation of leaders from the Philippine NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) to participate in the forums. Geraldine Go-Bernardo of Sport Management Council of the Philippines (SportPhil) presented about the value of Sport Outreaches, citing the success of projects her team had headed in being able to equip and encourage communities like Tacloban, Leyte, that had been hard hit by natural disasters in recent times. Prof. Hercules P. Callanta of Lyceum of the Philippines (an NCAA school) spoke about the environment of intercollegiate athletics in the Philippines. He presented a discussion about the challenges and opportunities of having many different collegiate leagues (UAAP, NCAA, SCUAA, etc.) crowning different champions every year and what these leagues end up doing for sport participation nationwide. Mark Daniel Chan, a sport entrepreneur, also presented about the marketing opportunities available for collegiate athletics in the Philippines. He presented the interesting situation that the country finds itself in – wherein collegiate sports are actually more marketable right now than professional leagues.
The two forums over that weekend helped bring about healthy discussions regarding the potential and power of collegiate athletes, and the various infrastructure needs athletes have in the countries they hail from. Having interacted with colleagues and thought leaders from countries such as Australia, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia, and Taiwan, the Philippine delegation was inspired to both adopt best practices from these countries and to also begin the process of facilitating change in the many different areas that are needed for Sport Development and Empowerment in the country today.

An Opinion Article by Mark Daniel Chan
We have recently seen an exciting conclusion to the US NCAA Basketball Championship. For both the Men’s and Women’s Division 1 programs, the month of March provided a great backdrop for some of the most exciting basketball the world has seen. In the Men’s Division, perennial powerhouse North Carolina continued its tradition of basketball dominance as it fought off a fierce challenge from Oregon in the semifinal and delivered when it counted against first time finalist Gonzaga in the final. The Women’s Division witnessed even greater drama when eventual champion South Carolina ended the University of Connecticut’s dominance with a 66-64 OT victory in the semifinal. Head Coach Dawn Staley, a longtime stalwart of the US Women’s National Team for much of the 1990s, won her first title as a Head Coach days later when the Gamecocks dispatched Mississippi State 67-55 in the title game.
Such intensity and drama in sport, which has been coined as “March Madness” in the United States, currently does not take place in the Philippines. While there have been invitational tournaments in the past that have sought to answer the question of “who really is the best,” schools have traditionally given importance to winning their respective leagues. This is the reason why there is a separate champion for the NCAA and the UAAP, even if both leagues have players of generally similar caliber. Some experts have defended this stance, saying that having multiple leagues and champions is good for the basketball scene in the country, as more teams can have “bragging rights” and the title “champion.” While part of me agrees with this view, the more competitive part of me (and hence the greater part) actually wants to find out once and for all why there has never been a quest to find out who really is Number 1?
Is It A Question of An Uneven Playing Field?
Because of the geographic composition of the Philippines, the “major” leagues in college basketball have generally been Manila-centric by nature. As has been common practice, the talented hoopsters of the South generally take their talents to Manila to be featured. Not moving to Manila has had its consequences. Players who do not get noticed at the college level generally have a harder time crafting a professional basketball career for themselves. Manila leagues such as the UAAP and the NCAA have generally gotten more media attention, with both leagues currently being aired by a major TV network at the time of writing.
Colleges (and high schools) from the South (Visayas and Mindanao) have had trouble hanging onto talent because of this market trait. This comprises part of the reason why teams from the South feel that they would not be in a fair fight if they were to take on the giants of the major collegiate leagues. This does, however, beg the question: “What if there were a way to somehow level the playing field?” Moving to a brand new culture in Manila must be a difficult proposition for some players. This is the reason why several players tend to struggle once they move to a new environment. Even “superstars in the making” have to contend with Spartan accommodations, as student quarters generally house 15-20 players at a time in a very small room. Relationships also tend to suffer as a result of this move. Several players are forced to move away from home, and while this may be a good thing for some players, it may also be a bad thing for those who have not developed the requisite maturity to do so.
While this article will not touch upon the debate of whether a 16-20 year old may be able to handle the move to a new (and even if it is in the same country, it still would be a) foreign place, this article will talk about the concept of giving people a choice to do so.
Leveling the Playing Field in Terms of Exposure
The main problem in this scenario is one that may be seen from a player’s perspective: “If I don’t move to Manila, I won’t likely get noticed by the people who need to notice me and I hence will not be able to play professional basketball later.” What is the constraint in this scenario? It is simply the lack of coverage or a ratings system for players and teams around the country.
Why is it important to have a national ratings system? It is important because a player knows that he must be properly evaluated (or at least rated to the best of one’s unbiased opinion) in order to be professionally drafted. This problem has been an underrated reason for why our basketball competitiveness has slowly eroded as a nation.
Let’s think about the effects of this system. In our country, people only get attention if they score a lot of points. Newspapers still do not publish actual box scores showing rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks alongside points. I once made a joke that if Draymond Green were to have had his historic game (the one in which he scored a triple double without reaching double figures in points) in the Philippines, he would have been relegated to the back end of the sports news as he only scored four points that day. Therefore, young basketball players think that the only way to economic success is to want to score a lot. This leads to a “score first” mentality that permeates every level of basketball in our basketball-crazy nation.
In Europe, kids are taught the fundamentals of the game and are taught to move the ball with the precision of a scalpel. In the United States (maybe after disregarding the AAU system), collegiate players are noticed for the little things they do that make their teammates better. This is why Jason Kidd was such a highly ranked prospect coming out of the University of California (Berkeley) system and why Lonzo Ball (UCLA) is the same way. Scouts notice their ability to pass and make their teammates better. The lack of a proper statistical rating system has harmed our game to the extent of teaching us how to value “ball hogs” and “volume shooters” over truly versatile and valuable players.
The Proposed Solution
Having a national and unified ratings system would go a long way towards fixing what is wrong with our country’s basketball talent evaluation system. I started this article with the question of: “Is our country ready for a true national championship?” It turns out, this is not just about the need to find out about who the No. 1 team really is. This is about addressing the need to fairly evaluate our young basketball talent so that we may regain our global competitiveness in the sport (and so that we are not at the mercy of making players who have not previously set foot in the country Filipino citizens).
A national ratings system would level the playing field for teams across the country and would give the Southern schools a chance to retain talent (and the players of those schools a chance to have more choices). A national ratings system would also address the problem of information asymmetry that later shows up in the professional draft. It would represent the start of something noble and pure – making sure that the country’s best young talent is evaluated in the best way possible.
