Around 300 coaches participated in the recent Philippine Sports Commission’s (PSC) National Sports Coaching Certification Course held online Thursday.

The program aims to provide an opportunity to improve coaching skills essential in grassroots development programs in the country.

It provided lectures on athletics, badminton and volleyball.

“We wanted to elevate the learning experience of these participants, who previously passed the Level 1 Sports Science Lectures conducted from July 2020 to June last month,” said PSI Grassroots Program Head Abby Rivera.

PSC Commissioners Ramon Fernandez, Celia Kiram and Charles Maxey opened the two-day lecture, where it will conclude on Saturday with an online exam.

“Passers to be granted Level 1 accreditation on these sports specific lectures will be moving on to Level 2,” Rivera said.

A project under the Philippine Sports Institute’s Sports Education and Training Program, it has also tapped on the expertise of coaches Roselyn Jamero and Joseph Sy of athletics, coaches Bianca Carlos and Rjay Ormilla of badminton, and coach Jerry Yee of volleyball.
