PSC online lectures gather 300 coaches


THE Philippine Sports Commission’s (PSC) National Sports Coaching Certification Course (NSCCC) drew a huge audience of 300 participants who received specific lectures on athletics, badminton and volleyball online on Thursday.

A project of the Philippine Sports Institute’s (PSI) Sports Education and Training Program, the NSCCC provides an opportunity for continued education and skill building for coaches as part of a unified national grassroots program in the country.

“We want to elevate the learning experience of these participants, who previously passed the Level 1 Sports Science Lectures conducted from July 2020 to June last month,” PSI Grassroots Program Head Abby Rivera said.

The two-day lectures for athletics, badminton and volleyball were simultaneously opened by PSC Commissioners Ramon Fernandez, Celia Kiram and Charles Maxey, respectively, via Google Meet. The program will be concluded with an examination on Saturday.

The PSC-PSI tapped also tapped the expertise of coaches Roselyn Jamero and Joseph Sy (athletics), Bianca Carlos and Rjay Ormilla (badminton) and Jerry Yee (volleyball) to give high-level lectures through synchronous and asynchronous learning methods.

Rivera said that successful participants will be granted Level 1 accreditation on the specific lectures and will be moving on to Level 2.

Last February, 180 participants from cities and municipalities in Luzon received Level 1 Sports Science online lectures on sports philosophy, pedagogy, psychology, physiology, talent identification and ethics.
