This time around, the National University is adding another demonstration sport to the league, arnis.
“We will have arnis as an exhibition part while three-on-three [basketball] will be back. We will also bring back formation ballroom to the mix,” disclosed UAAP President Nilo Ocampo of NU during the press conference of the 81st season of the league at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, Monday afternoon.
This brings the number of sports in the league to 16 medal sports, three dance sports, and two demo sports.
In addition, one of the league’s sweeping changes is that the UAAP will have its own set of referees. During the past few seasons, the league relied on the Basketball Referees Association for Schools, Colleges and University (BRASCU) for its officiating pool.
“For the first time, we will also have our own set of referees. This is to ensure that there will be quality and improvement in our officiating,” shared Ocampo.
