PSC launches MAKE It Sports short courses


THE Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) will launch MAKE It Sports—a module-based and asynchronous learning opportunity for sports enthusiasts.

Registration for the program will start on Friday.

MAKE or Modules for Asynchronous Knowledge Enhancement  will provide information on different topics in everyday life which touch the boundaries of sports like law, medicine, economics and technology.

The project is an offshoot of the National Sports Summit and will invite prominent speakers.

“Learning never stops. For some of our athletes, studies gave way to their training, but learning should never stop.  We must find a way,” PSC Chairman William “Butch” Ramirez said.

MAKE It Sports will feature modules that participants can learn from at their own pace and time and can opt to apply for certification by going through the examinations.

The courses will be given exclusively to registered learners for the first three months, after which the courses will be uploaded to the PSC’s website for public access.

Ramirez said the topics are practical and can be applied to daily life as it intersects with their sports life.

“They can be an athlete, a teacher, a coach, an administrator, but knowledge on the law as it applies to sports is very useful,” said Ramirez, a coach and teacher before he became a PSC commissioner and chairman.

The first module will deal with Sports Law and will be discussed by sports law-for-all advocate and Pilipinas Obstacle Sports Federation President Atty. Alberto Agra. Two other modules available this month include Arbitration in Sports and Netball.
