The country’s top professional leagues will help out their amateur counterparts in their bid to return to practice.

Games and Amusement Board chairman Baham Mitra was able to gather the head honchos of Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3, Philippine Basketball Association, and Philippines Football League to share to the presidents of both the University Athletic Association of the Philippines and the National Collegiate Athletic Association their experience and protocols in holding practices amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“The pros are leading the way. They look up to them kaya dapat pakita na rin sa amateurs on how they are doing it,” said Mitra.

Chooks 3×3 commissioner Eric Altamirano was the first to confirm his attendance for the meeting set on Monday at 1:00PM, texting Mitra, “We will be more than happy to help them out.”

Willie Marcial of the PBA and Coco Torre of the PFL will also be in attendance. The former will showcase how San Miguel is holding its sessions at Acropolis Gym, while the latter will highlight Kaya FC’s return that began last Wednesday.

The PBA started their practices last August 26, while Chooks 3×3 began its practices at the UP Epsilon Chi Gym last August 31. On the other hand, the PFL returned to practice last Wednesday over at the PFF Training Center.

“I am confident that the pros would be willing to share what they are doing because after all, it’s one industry and everyone is concerned with each other. If one accident happens, then the whole group is affected,” shared Mitra.

The collegiate sports world has not been able to even hold practice as the Joint Administrative Order group will only allow it when “an effective vaccine and/or appropriate standard of care for COVID-19 cases is developed”.

San Beda team manager Jude Roque has been at the forefront of crafting guidelines for the return of varsity teams to practice.
