Check out what your kids can learn as leading sports coaches enter the camp!


Get your children acquainted with their active side this summer as Balesin Island Club opens its very first summer sports camp, perhaps this year’s biggest sports activity!

In partnership with San Miguel Corporation (SMC), the San Miguel Balesin Summer Sports Camp will run every week (Monday to Friday) from April 1 to June 28. An all-star roster of expert coaches and instructors will teach sports such as basketball, tennis, baseball, and soccer to kids aged eight to 18 years old.

Just how prestigious will this sports camp be? For basketball, your kids will be trained by Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) legends Vince Hizon, Alvin Patrimonio, Johnny Abarrientos, and Willie Miller. Even Jr. NBA Asia coach Louie Gonzales will man the basketball camp!

Kids will definitely enjoy learning basketball from the best

The tennis camp, on the other hand, will be led by national team coaches PJ Tierro, Niño Alcantara, Roland Kraut, Karl Santamaria, and Dennis Sta. Cruz. For the baseball camp, expect nothing less than National Mustang and Bronco coaches Eric Gesmundo, Jhoel Palanog, and Justin Zialcita, along with the 2018 University Athletic Association of the Philippines’ (UAAP) Most Valuable Player and star pitcher Kiko Gesmundo.

“We are encouraging parents, together with their kids to participate and be part of the summer camp and take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Fun and excitement are guaranteed,” says Balesin Island Club CEO Mike Asperin.

Under International Professional Tennis Registry Coach Marty Ilagan, the camp director, these coaches will use modern and scientific approaches to athletics, and incorporate character-forming lessons in their programs to help kids become champions in sports and in life. “Balesin offers this perfect vacation for the family, and at the same time, keeps the kids active through sports. Not only that, they will also learn from the best national coaches,” says Coach Marty.

SMC will provide the sports camp participants with household favorites, such as Purefoods breakfast staples and snacks, Magnolia free-range fresh chicken, fresh brown eggs, fresh milk, fruit drinks, and Magnolia ice cream to beat the heat.

The sports camp will also include a five (5)-day and four (4)-night stay in one of Balesin Island Club’s well-appointed villas, roundtrip airfare to and from Balesin, and full-board meals for four people. Interested parties may avail now of the all-inclusive package rate of PHP160,000 (for four pax) plus VAT—a whopping 50% off from the package’s standard price of PHP320,000 plus VAT. An additional 5% early bird discount will also be given to the first 100 who will sign up! Balesin members also get a 5% discount.
