PSC adopts Cebu City sports pro­gram

Sun Star Cebu Yearbook - - TOP STORIES IN SPORTS -

One of the most pos­i­tive de­vel­op­ments in Cebu sports was the ap­point­ment of Ed­ward Hayco, the man be­hind Dance­s­port Team Cebu City’s in­ter­na­tional success, as chair­man of the Cebu City Sports Com­mis­sion ( CCSC). Hayco wasted no time warm­ing his seat, as he mapped out plans for Cebu sports, start­ing with a Sports Sum­mit that was aimed to iden­tify how to ad­dress the prob­lems each sport faced. Hayco’s phi­los­o­phy is sim­ple: get some­one to teach some­one who will teach some­one, who will share his knowl­edge with some­one else. The re­sult? A Cebu Sports In­sti­tute that aims, among oth­ers, to help win the coun­try a gold medal in the 2020 Olympics and a grass­roots pro­gram that the Philip­pine Sports Com­mis­sion ( PSC) wants adopted na­tion­wide. In Fe­bru­ary 2012, Hayco was in­vited to share how he started the pro­gram dur­ing the PSCLo­cal Government Unit Sum­mit in Manila, with the sports agency prais­ing the CCSC ap­proach as an “hon­est- to- good­ness, gen­uine sports grass­roots devel­op­ment pro­gram.”
