MANILA, Philippines – The Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on Sunday announced the placement of 38 areas at Alert Level 1 from March 1-15, paving the way for a fresh start for sports facilities and the annual UAAP after a two-year hiatus.
UAAP announced that the eight member schools will participate in at least three events on March 26.
In addition to the relaxed travel restrictions under Alert Level 1, all establishments are allowed to operate, all people are allowed to work and all activities can be carried out at full capacity on site, provided health standards are met. .
Other cities like Pasig now also allow group exercise in outdoor areas. Individual outdoor exercises are also permitted for all ages, regardless of vaccination status. Mayors of different cities have said their residents can play contact sports, such as basketball, in various indoor courts authorized by the barangay or the city government, as long as safety protocols are followed.
“It is also high time for athletes to train in sports facilities and make maximum use of them now that many areas of Manila have been placed under Alert Level 1,” Vice President Mikee Romero said. .
“In addition, it is a great time to highlight some of the best sports facilities for the SEA Games, such as the new Clark Stadium and the 3.5 billion peso sports complex in Bagac, Bataan, which will offer pitches training for athletes practicing the following sports such as archery, athletics, badminton, baseball, basketball, beach volleyball, bowling, taekwondo, karate, judo, wrestling, cycling (velodrome), dance sport, football, gymnastics, handball, lawn tennis, sepak takraw, shooting, softball, squash, swimming, table tennis, volleyball, rock climbing, water polo and weightlifting,” he added.
The 2022 international sporting events are packed and our chosen Filipino athletes are expected to compete this year. In 2021, it can be remembered that Romero offered incentives to the medal winners of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and he also said that they prioritize providing sufficient funding to the Philippine Sports Commission over their sports program in Congress.
