The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) has allocated an P8-million initial budget for the Continuing Sports Education Program that is part of the government sports agency’s partnership with the United States Sports Academy (USSA).

The budget will cover the various projects laid out by both the PSC and the USSA in enhancing the country’s sports programs, particularly in sports management and coaching.

The initial target venues for the seminars will be in Manila and Cebu.

“This is important in providing a landscape and a platform to our national sports association leaders,” said PSC chairman William ‘Butch’ Ramirez.

The PSC board will discuss clearances and coordination in the coming weeks with concerned government agencies like the Department of Foreign Affairs, the Commission on Higher Education and the Professional Regulation Commission.

The Continuing Sports Education Program will provide knowledge on assessment of sports education and staffing, as well as educational services to train coaches and sports administrators.
