Virtual learning of sports and physical education will take centre stage in the Philippine Sports Commission’s Rise Up Shape Up this coming Saturday, July 3.

The webisode will showcase the different stories and insights of sports educators and women coaches in the new normal mode of learning caused by the present global health crisis.

University of the Philippines Community Recreations Director and UP College of Human Kinetics assistant professor Michiko S. Aseron will talk about Kinetika Online—a public service of the UP-CHK that encourages people to do exercise during the lockdown. 

“The web series does not only promote balance in physical, mental, and emotional health but also supports the promotion of sports on a digital platform,” said PSC Women in Sports oversight Commissioner Celia Kiram.

Joining Prof. Aseron in the episode is Dr. Jenny Lee Victor-Esiong of the Benguet State University Institute of Human Kinetics. She will discuss the strategies in transforming online classes to a better platform for sports and movement. Dr. Esiong serves as the university dance sports coach since 2008. She used to be a dance troupe member, a varsity player of basketball and soccer and has competed nationally from 1998-2002.

De La Salle University faculty member Karina Crisostomo will also join the webisode to give some tips on Managing Stress in Online Learning.

“The PSC women in sports program wanted to highlight our women educators, coaches, and athletes to inspire young girls to get active and be involved in sports as a form of empowerment,” said Kiram.
