WITH scrimmages and the UAAP 84th season’s fate hanging in the air, La Salle is doing the next best thing.
Green Archers coach Derrick Pumaren said he is teaching his charges to be patient in cooling their heels but should remain in top shape.
“I just talked to them that they have to stay positive and motivated in spite of this pandemic, that we just have to be ready that when we are allowed to have face-to-face training at least we should be 70 percent in condition,” Pumaren told Malaya-Business Insight.
“I set goals to attain so we can look at something to aim (for),” he added.
The UAAP initially planned to kick off its new season next month April under a bubble set-up and possibly with only the centerpiece sports such as basketball and volleyball, but it did not push through.
The league called off its 83rd season in December last year that marked the first time the UAAP scrapped a season since World War II from 1941 to 1946.
