PSC Unveils 2014 Batang Pinoy Road Map (Oct 15,2014)
A Meeting was called with represents from most of the NSA’s. Present, in some cases, there was a coach rather than an executive representing the NSA. The meeting was presided over by PSC Commissioner Jolly Gomez. The floor was open, with all questions being answered throughout the presentation.
The following legs of the Batang Pinoy in 2014 were held at Kalibo, Naga, with the finals in Bacolod. With the Pagadian leg already finished.
Commissioner Gomez’s vision here was to spread the sport and recruitment areas for NSAs to as many places as possible to expand the scope of identifying talents for Philippine Sport.
He highlighted it was additional support for NSA. Not a complete substitute as NSA can still hold their own national championships also.
The expansion of the Batang Pinoy and National Games programs Commissioner Gomez had revived back in 2011. Stated it helps all NSA expand their grass root programs. And provides an opportunity for growing NSA to spread the interest in their sports via clinics.
Batang Pinoy and Regional National Games were held at the same time but at different locations. With the National teams exempted from regional rounds but not playing in the finals.
Gomez also stated a good way to tap talent for some sports might be involving PRISAA/SCUAA members who have minimal meets in a year.
It could also expand into a Regional Coaching Program similar to Thailand’s system in regards to clinics.
And also stated that if budgets were not used for international meets, they could either go into purchasing equipment or clinics.
