FUTURE medalists of the Palarong Pambansa will receive specialized training and be sent to international meets in an effort to develop their talents further.
Philippine Sports Commission Chairman William “Butch” Ramirez said this as the agency prepares to go into discussions that will that will help strengthen the development of school sports.
Ramirez said the agency is now studying the process of selecting members of the national team.
In doing so, the PSC will do its part by supporting funding and management of potential athletes at the grassroots’ level.
“Sa level pa lang ng under-18 and under-15, dapat may counterpart sila na puwedeng mag-national team na nagpapa-participate na sa mga events all over the world,” said Ramirez.
These will help the athletes in the selection process, according to Ramirez, because by the time that they have been chosen, their vast experience will be a plus.
“The PSC is prepared to support the athletes of the Palarong Pambansa and others all over the country,” added Ramirez.
Representatives from around 140 schools, colleges, universities and athletic associations will gather to meet with the PSC during the National Consultative Meeting for Collegiate Sports at the Philsports Multipurpose Arena in Pasig City from Oct. 17 to 18.
