Games of Olden Times

What sports are we gonna play starting on Sunday afternoon during the Sportsfest of the youth leaders in Tolosa? A list was generated and we came up with ballgames like basketball and volleyball. Track and field will also be included. What else? Yeah, traditional games, those which were played by our ancestors then. This way aside from the sportsfest aim to promote the camaraderie of the youth leaders, the sports and culture of filipinos that is becoming extinct will be preserved and promoted.  Traditonal sports and games here have recently been overtaken with the modernization of technologies where children do not play outdoor games anymore but rather stay indoor to play computer games.  Promoting the traditional games would at least bring the past to these future leaders of the country.
