To promote youth empowerment through sports management, the Sports Development Program Office (SDPO) of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) carried out its first extension project under the Salin-Kaalaman Tungo sa Kaunlaran Program for the Sangguniang Kabataan of Barangay Pulong Buhangin, Sta. Maria, Bulacan last August 27 and September 3, 2022.
The extension project, titled “iSports, Dinamismong pamPisikal para sa kOmunidad,” was composed of two phases and featured speeches from the SDPO pool of specialists under the direction of Asst. Prof. Romulo B. Hubbard.
Among the resource speakers invited were Ms. Kristine Garcia-Guiriba, a certified first aid specialist, aquatics, lifesaving, and coach of PUP Women’s Swimming Team; Mr. Ryan A. Enriquez, a sports specialist and coach of PUP Men’s Basketball Team; and Mr. Niño Inocencio A. Santos, Chief of SDPO, sports specialist, coach of PUP Men’s Volleyball Team and National Volleyball Referee.
Ms. Garcia-Guiriba presented fundamental examples of how to treat common sports injuries using first aid. Meanwhile, Mr. Enriquez spoke about the basic ideas and pointers for applying management techniques to the planning and administration of a sports program.
Mr. Santos, on the other hand, spoke about volleyball’s background, its mechanics, and the fundamental laws and guidelines that govern it. They also stressed how conducting a well-organized and productive sporting event will be made possible by implementing the basic principles of sports management.
After the lectures, beneficiaries practiced the pre-implementation to post-implementation of a sports tournament through a hands-on application.
