The Commission on Youth Ministry Youth Centers sector, headed by the previous in-charge Rev. Fr. John Vernil Lopez, SDB, organized the annual Inter-Don Bosco Youth Center summer league of the different Don Bosco Youth Centers (DBYC). The opening ceremony took place at the Archdiocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes – DBYC Gymnasium last May 11, 2018. The summer league was participated by the four DB settings namely: DBYC – DBTC, DBYC – Lawaan, DBYC – Lourdes, and DBYC – Pasil.

The IDBYC Summer League 2018 had only two sports: Basketball for the young lads and Volleyball for both young lads and lasses. The said event is one of the venues to gather and promote camaraderie among the Salesian youth specifically in Cebu District. Aside from the many formative inputs and group building activities SYM is giving the sports and recreation is a must for character building.
