In an interview with this writer, the host and sponsor of the tournament city Mayor John Geesnell Baba Yap said, “I am always in full support to the cause of the  youth and sports. Undertakings, like this one, will divert the focus of our youth to some productive activities like making themselves; in tip top shape to be able to compete decently  with the other schools aside from helping them to achieve their lifetime ambitions to make it to the big leagues.  Likewise, this will instill upon them  the good traits-and discipline of good citizenry which hopefully will lead us to a crime free society.”
