NCAA open to adding more sports for Season 96

The NCAA is considering to add more sports aside from the four mandatory events for Season 96. Sports that require minimal player-to-player contact could be included in the sports calendar of the shortened season set to tentatively open March 2021 according to Management Committee (ManCom) chairman Fr. Vic Calvo, OP of host Letran. The oldest collegiate league in the country earlier announced that only the four mandatory sports basketball, volleyball, swimming and track and field will be played in the coming season. However, Calvo mentioned the depending on the situation of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, other sports might be added. “Hindi naman tayo talaga naka-fix but we are fluid. We are on observing kung ano yung situation and we will fit in that situation para matuloy ‘yung NCAA,” said the ManCom chairman on Tuesday on the online session of the Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum. Sports like tennis, chess, badminton, table tennis, and e-sports might be included. “Actually, marami pa sa mga schools ang nag-maintain ng other events. Kaya for example yung basic rule na kapag sa isang tournament like lawn tennis, medyo individual sport yan except sa doubles. Kapag merong apat na schools (na may team) they can organize, look for the budget, sponsorship,” said Calvo. The Letran official specifically mentioned the possible consideration of online chess and esports, both of which have come in handy during this time of pandemic. He said Mobile Legends is one of the online sports being deliberated by the collegiate league, citing how the country even won a gold medal in the event when e-sports made its debut in the last Southeast Asian Games. “Sa SEA Games ginawa na natin ito. Nag-champion naman tayo, so why not do this especially in this time of the pandemic,” stressed Calvo in the session presented by San Miguel Corporation, Go For Gold, Amelie Hotel Manila, Braska Restaurant, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), and powered by Smart. As for the other sports, Calvo said it can be held by staging lesser events like doing away with the relays in swimming and track and field, or not having doubles in both lawn tennis and badminton. Track and field and tennis were among the sports affected when the NCAA decided to totally cancel the second semester events of Season 95 following the outbreak of the coronavirus. “Naka-apekto yun (COVID-19) sa Season 95 because we’re not able to finish its calendar. At may ilang events that were scheduled to be held like beach volleyball track and field, cheerleading, while indoor volleyball and lawn tennis were not able to complete their tournaments,” said Cayco. With the failure to stage other sporting events, the NCAA also decided not to hand out a general championship since schools within the top three of the standings are all closely clustered together at the top. “Kasi yung 1-2-3 spots are up for grabs. So we decided not to award a general championship,” added Cayco, also president of the Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas Inc (LVPI). “So everything is now on Father Vic’s lap.” Calvo said it hasn’t been discussed yet within the ManCom whether a general championship will be given in the coming shortened season. “Hindi pa siya na-discuss. We’ll cross the bridge when we get there,” added the long-time Letran athletic director. “Premature pa as of now.” Besides, more events could be added to Season 96 calendar once the health situation starts to get better in the coming months. “Depende sa sitwasyon, eh. We don’t know what will happen between now and March 2021,” said Calvo......»»

Collegiate leagues to benefit from establishment of NAS -- Tolentino

The establishment of the National Academy of Sports is not a threat to collegiate leagues according to Philippine Olympic Committee president Bambol Tolentino. Speaking to the POC-Philippine Sports Commission Press Corps via Zoom, Tolentino said that the trailblazing project of the government of putting up a secondary education academy for potential national athletes will actually benefit collegiate leagues like the UAAP and NCAA. “Hindi naman (kaagaw) kasi after that they’ll pursue into different colleges eh sa tertiary nila,” said Tolentino, also the representative of the eight district of Cavite. “Pag-aagawan na nga ‘yan. Mag-aagawan na ang UAAP at NCAA dyan kung sino ang kukunin.” He said that it will be more convenient for schools to recruit potential talents from NAS, who during their stay in the facility will get holistic quality education and special training to enable them to excel in their respective sports. “Pabor din sa university ‘yan kung sinong mago-offer,” said the POC chief, who is also the cycling head. “Na ito galing ito ng NAS, scholar ito. Malakas sa swimming ito o sa track and field. Pag-aagawan pa yan ng UAAP at NCAA or even international schools.” However, the directives on how potential student-athletes will be chosen or recruited to the NAS have yet to be discussed and if it will directly clash with the recruitment of collegiate teams. Member schools from the major collegiate leagues UAAP and NCAA have been investing heavily in their respective recruitment of programs. Most are already scouting for talents even from the elementary level to play for their high school teams, which then serves as their training pool for future players in their college teams.       On June 10, President Rodrigo Duterte signed the NAS Act which institutionalized an educational system within the framework of a national sustainable sports program.    The academy's main campus will be at the existing New Clark City Sports Complex in Capas, Tarlac, which will be constructed by the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA). This will give the students priority access to facilities at the New Clark City Sports Complex. The NAS is attached to the Department of Education (DepEd), in close coordination with the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC).     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
