United States Sports Academy President and CEO Dr. T.J. Rosandich has been invited to speak at the National Sports Summit hosted by the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) in Manila in February 2020.
Rosandich has been asked to provide his insights at the summit, which will cover the theme of “Sports Success from a First-World Perspective.”
The Academy has a long history in the Republic of the Philippines. Rosandich recently participated as an official observer at the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in the country, invited by the PSC.
The president’s invitation to speak at the National Sports Summit and his observations at the SEA Games come as the Academy is moving forward with an agreement with the PSC to enhance the national sport effort in the island nation. The agreement marked the return of the Academy’s international sports education programs to the Republic of the Philippines, where it taught certification programs in the early 1980s.
This year, the Academy will send faculty to the Philippines to teach the International Certification in Sports Coaching (ICSC), International Certification Sports Management (ICSM), and International Certification in Physical Education in Sports Coaching (ICPESC) programs to senior officials in the PSC and in the Philippine Olympic Committee.
Founded more than 45 years ago, the Academy has delivered quality sport education and service programs in 65 countries around the world. These have varied in scope from the full-charge conduct of a nation’s entire national sport effort to individual coaching clinics, seminars and symposia. As a not-for-profit, independent school of sport, the Academy has been able to provide a combination of expertise expected from a sports university combined with the experience gleaned from applying expertise in this field.
Clients of the Academy have included central sports organizations, (CSOs, such as ministries of youth and sports), national Olympic committees, ministries of education (for physical education and interscholastic sport programs) and sport associations and federations.
