UAAP, NCAA schools all set for varsity training

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has cleared all of the teams from the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) to train in a bubble set-up on Monday.

In a ceremony held at Emilio Aguinaldo College’s Gym in Manila, CHED chairman Popoy de Vera signed the memorandum together with Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque and officials of the UAAP and the NCAA.

“UAAP and NCAA schools have been allowed to conduct collegiate athletic training,” De Vera declared.

Only fully-vaccinated student-athletes have permission to enter the bubble training.

This would give teams from the NCAA and the UAAP at least two and a half months to train for their respective seasons.

Both leagues are looking to hold only two to three events next year – men’s basketball, women’s volleyball, and, for the UAAP, cheerdance.

The UAAP Season 84 and NCAA Season 97 tournaments – hosted by La Salle and CSB, respectively – will take place in a bubble as well.
