United States Sports Academy signs agreement to build Philippine National Sports Programme

DAPHNE, Ala. – The United States Sports Academy has signed an agreement to work with the Republic of the Philippines to develop the island nation’s national sport effort.

Academy President and CEO Dr. T.J. Rosandich recently signed a sports Protocol of Cooperation with Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) Chair William “Butch” Ramirez through which the academy will work with the country to strengthen its sports programmes at all levels, from youth and grassroots sports programmes to the elite sport level. Under the agreement signed in Davao City, the academy will work with governmental agencies and other organisations endorsed by the PSC to contribute to the national sports development programme.

The signing of this protocol is of particular significance to the United States Sports Academy as we have had a long history with the Philippines,” Rosandich said.

We taught our international certification programmes in sports management and sports coaching in the island nation in the early 1980s, so to return today for this programme is meaningful indeed.

“The Academy is looking forward to playing a role in the development of the national sport effort in the Philippines through our programmes in education, research and service. Having taught sports education programmes to over 65 countries, this partnership with the Philippines is a continuation of our mission.”

“When we came to the Philippine Sports Commission we launched the Philippine Sports Institute (PSI) with the hope of establishing and strengthening elite sports and grassroots sports programmes,” Ramirez told the Davao City Sun-Star newspaper. 

“This partnership with the United States Sports Academy is hoped to achieve that.”

The Academy will provide a wide range of services including an assessment of sport education and staffing in the country, as well as educational services to train coaches and sports administrators to achieve the nation’s sport goals. The academy will work with the Southeast Asian nation on such topics as human performance research, sports medicine, and the development of international caliber athletes.

The United States Sports Academy is an independent, non-profit, accredited, special mission sports university created to serve the nation and world with programmes in instruction, research and service. The role of the academy is to prepare men and women for careers in the profession of sports.

The academy is based in Daphne, Ala.  For more information, call (251) 626-3303 or visit www.ussa.edu.
