SEN. Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go gave assurances that the Philippine High School for Sports would soon rise after the completion of the New Clark City Sports Complex to provide scholarship grants for gifted young athletes.
“With the creation of the Philippine High School for Sports in very close proximity to world-class facilities… our student-athletes can enjoy a level of training, which is at par with the best in the world,” Go said on Wednesday after conducting an ocular inspection of the New Clark City Sports Complex.
“This type of training and education can catapult our student-athletes to illustrious careers in sports, whether as athletes, coaches, managers, or any other sports-related profession,” he added.
The senator said he had coordinated with the Department of Education, Philippine Sports Commission and Bases Conversion and
Development Authority (BCDA) and their response has been positive.
The BCDA, according to its president and chief executive officer Vince Dizon, would allot 3 hectares within New Clark City for the proposed school.
After touring the New Clark City Sports Complex, Go said construction was right on schedule and it would be ready for the 30th Southeast Asian Games that will start on November 30.
“With these state-of-the-art facilities, we can show the athletes and guests from our neighboring countries that the Philippines is more than capable of hosting international sports events, and we can boost the morale of our own athletes so that they would perform to the best of their abilities and earn medals for our country,” he added.
