The online National Sports Summit 2021 is now on its second to the last session as the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) presents a deeper view on the vital role of the Philippine Sports Institute (PSI) in the upcoming Session 24 this Wednesday, August 4.

PSC-PSI Grassroots Program Head Abigail Marie Rivera will be the resource person for the two-hour program which is expected to be attended by over 500 participants from various local government units (LGUs), National Sports Associations (NSAs), sports educators, stakeholders, and other private entities nationwide.

The PSI was revived and officially relaunched in 2017 by PSC Chairman William Ramirez under the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.

“This is a great opportunity for us to present the role of the PSI to our participants since most of them are our partners in grassroots development,” said PSI National Training Director and NSS Project Director Marc Edward Velasco.

The PSI is the sports agency’s arm to reach regional training centers. It is also the agency’s groundwork for its grassroots program to scout and discover new talent in the provinces that will soon become members of the Philippine team and become world-class elite athletes in the future.
