UAAP may change calender of events

By Peter Atencio | Jan. 07, 2014 at 12:01am

THE University Athletic Association of the Philippines will see big changes in its calendar of events within the next two years.

UAAP secretary treasurer Malou Isip of Season 76 host Adamson University said this after two member schools expressed their intention to propose changes in the way the league schedules its events by 2015.

She said the opening date of season 77, which will start with the basketball games, will remain the same and will still be in June 2014.

Season 78 will see a gradual change, and a possible change on the opening date when the school year opens in August 2015.

Another transition is expected to take place in season 79 when the following school year opens in September 2016.

Proposals for a gradual shift to a new sports calendar are now being drafted after a number of colleges and universities in the country made plans to move their academic calendar by 2015.

Many schools nationwide are making moves to align their school year with what is being observed by member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean).

Isip said the board members from the University of Santo Tomas and Ateneo de Manila have expressed their desire for changes within the league.

The two schools have informed the members of the UAAP board of their desire for the league to follow a new calendar.

Under the new academic calendar, the school year will no longer be from June to March schedule.

A two-phased shift to a September to May will instead be followed beginning in 2015.

She added that instead of a June opening for basketball, the league could begin the games after the planned September start of the school year, and that will be two years from now.

“It (changes) will be based on the meeting of the university presidents. Meron silang niluluto (They are cooking up something),” said Isip.

Board representative Gilda Kamus of UST explained that the changes which they are proposing will be gradual.

She said these adjustments will first be in terms of eligibility because the enrollment system will be the first to be affected by the changes.

Ateneo board representative Ricky Palou said proposals for changes will be extensively discussed when Adamson University formally turns over the league’s hosting rights to the University of the East by March.
