When I was still a kid, I was really into sports, However, there were no venue for me and my friends who are sports enthusiasts to formally developed our athletic prowess as there was no formal sports activity for children way back then.
Good thing that as of the moment, children 15 years old and below are given the chance to showcase their athletic potentials and develop them at the same time. This is the Batang Pinoy!
Based on EO 44, Batang Pinoy serves as the national sports competition program for children, and is envisioned to address the need for a grassroots sports program centered on values formation inherent in the practice of sports and play.
Batang pinoy provides the structure for a truly comprehensive sports development program for Filipino children below 15 years old and below. Gold and Silver medalists will from the Luzon leg, Visayas and Mindanao Leg will compete in the National Finals in Iloilo City. High performing athletes shall undergo high level training after winning in the National finals in preparation for the second edition of Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing China in 2014.
