Palarong Pambansa 2014 Live Update, Schedule and Results

The 2014 Palarong Pambansa (also known as the 2014 PALARO) is the 57th edition of the annual multi-sport for Filipino student-athletes. It is to be held in Sta. Cruz, Lagunausually in summer month of April. Since the Philippines will host the 6th ASEAN School Games 2014 probably in June 2014, 2014 Palarong Pambansa might schedule earlier. The Department of Education will give the rights of hosting to the bidding province. According to initial reports, five provinces are bidding for 2014 Palarong Pambansa.

Expected to participate on this year's edition are the student-athletes from 17 regions of the Philippines who will compete in various sports.

The Department of Education (DepEd) and the Provincial Government of Laguna solidified their partnership to conduct the 2014 Palarong Pambansa through a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed on January 13 by Laguna Governor Emilio Ramon “ER” Ejercito Jr. and Education Secretary Br Armin. A. Luistro FSC. The MOU stipulated the duties and responsibilities of both parties to ensure a well- managed and professionally run Palaro.

“The Province of Laguna will be the first host to the first Palarong Pambansa, which started in 1948, under the recently passed Palarong Pambansa Institutionalization Law or Republic Act 10588,” explained DepEd Assistant Secretary for Legal and Legislative affairs Tonisito Umali.

Governor Ejercito expressed his excitement in hosting the Palarong Pambansa. “Today with the signing with the Department of Education, Laguna is set to host the country’s largest and premier sporting event.”

Ejercito explained that upon winning the bid, the Province had initiated ground work in preparing its nine-hectare Sports Complex in Sta. Cruz, rehabilitating 60 surrounding schools as billeting quarters, and approaching every major stakeholder to get on board.

“The Palarong Pambansa in Laguna will be the benchmark for future Palarong Pambansa,” Ejercito added.

Luistro thanked Ejercito for his support. “Masaya ako dahil sa pagpapakita ng suporta ng buong bayan ng Laguna.” He also expressed his desire for a “clean and green” Palaro, reiterating the Clean and Green Policy that had been in place since 2011.

The Secretary who had very fond memories in visiting Laguna, expressed his desire for a clean and green Palaro, reiterating the Clean and Green Policy that had been in place since the 2011 Palarong Pambansa. “May pangarap ako para sa Palarong Pambansa na naipasok namin sa mga nakaraang Palaro -- ang pangangalaga sa kalikasan, an eco- friendly Palaro. Alam po namin na maraming basura pagkatapos ng bawat Palaro at ang kalikasan at ang kalinisan ng bawat bayan ay kailangang panatilihin.

The 2014 Palaro will also feature one new event as Olympic Wrestling makes its debut this year. Demonstration sports Wushu for Secondary boys and girls and Billiards for Secondary boys, which debuted in the 2013 Palaro, will return this year.

DepEd is the lead agency in the conduct of the annual Palarong Pambansa in coordination with the Philippines Sports Commission and its National Sports Associations. The program aims to promote physical education and sports as an integral part of learning, and hopes to develop and to mold a holistic youth who are socially responsible and globally-competitive.
