CDC Sports and Leisure

In its effort to maintain a healthy work force and to revitalize its worker through sports, CDC has put in place a Sports and Leisure structure within the corporation to effectively implement these activities and constructively achieve the goals of its intentions. The mission of the Sports and Leisure Association are as follows:

  1.  To establish and maintain a healthy, active and productive CDC community by promoting sound and popular sporting activities and recreational campaigns.
  2.  To institute a spirit of competitiveness with the CDC sports scenario in order to improve in the sporting talents within the corporation.

In order to effectively achieve its purpose and reach out effectively to all workers, the structure of the association is carved out into eight administrative zones covering the entire corporation, coordinated by zonal sporting representatives. The association is centrally overseen by a SLA President and two other executive members.
