DESPITE the ongoing coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic, the Negros Occidental Private Schools Educational and Cultural Sports Association (Nopsscea) launches virtually via the Zoom meeting the 41st season of its sports and cultural events on Friday, February 4 2022.
Mark Molina, president of Nopsscea, told Sunstar Bacolod that this season is rooted in the theme “Nopsscea: Never Outdone @ 41”, which speaks to the struggles of academia while battling the pandemic.
Molina said their events for this season involve athletic, cultural and academic competitions.
He said their technical committee has already held initial meetings relating to this year’s events.
Among the events of this year’s Nopsscea season are online athletic competitions for taekwondo, chess, and even basketball.
For basketball, it won’t be a typical team sport, but more of an individual skills competition, Molina said earlier.
It will be the same for taekwondo, where the participants will only present their defined sequence of movements which consists of the different fundamental positions, blocks, punches and kicks logically arranged in a meaningful order in response to attacks from multiple attackers. imaginary or poomsae instead of the usual contact sport, Molina added.
