On Monday, the PBA successfully held its Players Development Program at the Meralco Theater in Pasig City.

In the two-hour session attended by 173 players from all 12 teams. the league tackled topics such as prejudice, violence against women and children, annulment, and other matters.

Guest speakers were Dr. Jasmin Nario-Galace and former Sta. Lucia alternate governor Atty. Ariel Magno.

Chair of the Education Association of the Philippines’ Justice and Peace Educational Committee, Dr. Nario-Galace discussed about prejudice, equality, and discrimination.

Atty. Magno, on the other hand, talked about violence against women and children and legal matters, such as annulment and others related to it.

This was the second time this season that the league has held a players’ orientation.

The first one was held in February, where financial management, maximizing the players’ social media presence, grooming, dealing with the media, and mental health were discussed.

“Sa mga players, katulad ng sinabi ko kanina, malaking tulong ‘to para sa inyo,” said commissioner Willie Marcial.

Asked if this will be held on a yearly basis, the amiable executive said that it is a possibility.

“Ang sa ‘kin kung ano nararapat. Dati naman walang ganitong orientation, laging sa mga rookies. Tignan natin kung anong nararapat na gawing programa para sa mga players,” he said.

“Hindi tayo titigil para tulungan sila.”
