With the participation of the UA&P Firestarters and San Beda Alabang Jr. Red Lions Cheerleading Squad, the opening ceremony was a simple but classy act enhanced by indigenous music by Pinikpikan.

Given the league’s special focus on basketball, volleyball and cheerleading, this will be a more exciting year for women’s sports.
