USSA back to help PH sports
THE PHILIPPINE Sports Commission (PSC) and the United States Sports Academy (USSA) formally forged a partnership for the development and enhancement of sports in the Philippines.
Academy President and CEO Dr. T.J. Rosandich signed the agreement with PSC Chair William “Butch” Ramirez with members of the PSC delegation and Academy faculty and Trustees present during a recent visit by the delegation to the Academy campus in Daphne, Alabama last month.
The agreement marks the return of the Academy’s international programs to the Republic of the Philippines, where it taught certification programs in the early 1980s.
“The Academy is looking forward to playing a role in the enhancing of the national sport’s effort in the Philippines through our programs in education, research, and service. Having taught sports education programs to more than 65 countries, this partnership with the Philippines is a continuation of our mission,” Rosandich said in a press release.
Around 50 PSC trainers, 50 local government unit (LGU) coaches and trainers and 50 public school teachers will initially benefit the program in the country this June.
“We have a great respect for the United States Sports Academy because of the work it did with our country in the past,” Ramirez said. “We are grateful for all the Academy has done and we look forward to restarting the relationship we had for so many years.”
