Please also note that, as of 2022 onwards, getting to the Palarong Pamabansa depends on qualifying standards, not placings at regional events.

Palarong Pambansa 2023 Updates (Feb 7)

PASIG CITY—February 7, 2023— Nearly three years after the COVID-19 pandemic forced its cancellation, the Department of Education (DepEd) confirmed the 2023 Palarong Pambansa will be held in Marikina City from July 29 to August 5.

This year’s scholastic multi-sport competition will be hosted by Marikina City’s LGU, DepEd-NCR Office, and SDO.

The Palarong Pambansa Secretariat recommended holding Division Meets on February 6-10 and Regional Meets on April 24-28, according to DepEd Memorandum No. 5, s. 2023.

The Pre-National Qualifying Meet will reduce delegations, event duration, and costs without lowering play quality.

The new level will exclusively contain team sports like baseball, basketball, football, futsal, sepak takraw, and volleyball.

The next layer will divide delegations into four geographical regions. Cluster 1 includes Ilocos, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, and Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR); Cluster 2 includes CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, NCR, and Bicol Region; Cluster 3 includes Western, Central, and Eastern Visayas and Zamboanga Peninsula Region; and Cluster 4 includes Northern Mindanao, Davao, SOCCKSARGEN, CARAGA, and BARMM.

The top two regional delegations per cluster proceed to Palarong Pambansa.

DepEd Order No. 34, s. 2022, and other applicable regulations and standards require the modified competition structure to reduce class disturbance and follow minimal public health and safety protocols.


Individual Sports Direct to Palarong Pambansa 2023 Finals after Regionals

Athletics, swimming, and archery, which may need items like that target quiver, will use Palarong Pambansa qualifying distance, time, and points. Other non-team sports without qualifying standards will advance directly to the Palarong Pambansa finals.

Filipino athletes from authorized schools overseas can compete in individual sports under Philippine Schools Overseas (PSOs).

Section 27, Rule VI of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act (RA) 10588, also known as the Palarong Pambansa Act of 2013, requires a separate memorandum on the technical guidelines for all sports.


As Per Notification, the cut-off Date of Birth for the Secondary Division will be Jan 1, 2005
