Thank you and we hope for your continued support to Philippine sports.
OBJECTIVES OF THE BATANG PINOY PROGRAM
● Being integral part of the national policy and program for sports development will effectively address our need for a comprehensive grassroots sports program centered on values formation inherent in the practice of sports and play.
● Inculcate in the young minds of Filipino athletes the value of patriotism, nationalism, self discipline, respect for law and order, hardwork, teamwork, camaraderie, sportsmanship and fair play, thus eliminating the child’s chances of becoming a juvenile delinquent.
● The program can also serve as recruitment baser for sports specialization including training for other high level leagues, national tournaments and international competitions.
