LGUs focus on 2nd session of online PSC national summit

online national summit of the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) resumes on Thursday, focusing on the local government units and their sports development programs.

Davao del Norte (DavNor) Sports and Youth Development head Giovanni Gulanes will be the resource speaker in the second session of the sport summit, dubbed “Sports Conversations,” and is expected to share their experience in DavNor under the session “Sports in Local Governments (A Model System).”

Mr. Gulanes will talk about DavNor and their hosting of local multisport festivals, like the Palarong Pambansa (National Games), Batang Pinoy (Philippine Youth Games), as well as share how their province has successfully and effectively implemented their sports program.

“We are excited to showcase DavNor as a model. Hopefully, it could inspire other leaders and coordinators from different LGUs to pursue their own sports development programs,” said PSC chairman William Ramirez in a statement.

Originally scheduled for February last year, the 2021 national sports summit has been readjusted as a three-phased project.

The summit has taken the form of a series of weekly conference-type online sessions hosted by the PSC via Zoom. It will run until May this year.

Sports Conversations is aimed at taking insights of different sports stakeholders and using those as foundations in crafting a sustainable and workable short to long-term plan for Philippine sports.

The PSC said all data gathered from the Sports Conversations series will be processed and studied to create a new set of resolutions to be presented to sports leaders for action.

The summit kicked off on Jan. 27 with President Rodrigo R. Duterte officially opening the online gathering.

The first speaker was United States Sports Academy (USSA) President T.J. Rosandich, who talked about “Sports Success from a First World Perspective.” — Michael Angelo S. Murillo
