PARA mabigyan ng sapat na atensiyon at tulong ang lahat na National Sports Associations, hinati ni Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) Chairman William ‘Butch’ Ramirez ang mga ito sa apat na clusters.
“The distribution of NSAs through cluster is effective and systematic to see to it everything is in place, properly followed and implemented,” sabi ni Ramirez.
Napunta kay Com. Celia Kiram ang lawn tennis, badminton, squash, soft tennis, ice hockey, skating, dance sport, gymnastic, canoe-kayak, at triathlon, bukod sa Women in Sports and Children Game.
Nasa pangangasiwa naman ni Com. Ramon Fernandez ang lahat na combat sports, habang ang ball games ay kay Com. Charles Raymond Maxey. Napunta kay Com. Arnold Agustin ang athletics, table tennis, swimming, goal ball at differently-able sports.
“The main reason I distributed NSAs to four commissioners is to see to it everything is in place and runs smoothly. Every commissioner has his own cluster to make it easier and smooth sailing,” sabi ni Ramirez.
“PSC and NSAs leaders should work hand and hand and consolidate their efforts and resources to attain success in international sporting competitions, at this point in time the focus of attention is the 2021 Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam. Through this scheme, we can achieve success,” dagdag pa ng PSC chief.
Sa isang panayam, sinabi ni Com. Kiram na makikipagpulong siya sa mga NSA president na nasa ilalim ng kanyang cluster para malaman ang lahat ng kanilang mga pangangailangan.
“Clustering of sports is viable approach to make it effective and systematic,” sabi ni Kiram, pencak silat president. CLYDE MARIANO
