Last March 2022, the MVP Sports Foundation launched an online program with the support of Adrenaline Solutions (AS) called the Grassroots Appreciation Program (GAP). One of its main objectives is to create a network of leaders and sports associations that will genuinely work together to develop healthy and effective grassroots development.
The MVP Sports Foundation was created to centralize the sports initiatives of the MVP Group, a large Philippine conglomerate which has interests in telecommunication, utilities, finance, medicine, and more. It is particularly focused on the National Team Programs. The GAP is led by Executive Director, Mr Jude Turcuato and the Head of its Community Sports and Youth Development, Atty. Jang Moreno.
The following organizations were represented in the one-day GAP event:
- Philippine Floorball Association
- Philippine Skating Union
- Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas
- Philippine Table Tennis Federation
- Muaythai Association of the Philippines
- Gymnastics Association of the Philippines
- Association of Boxing Alliances in the Philippines
- Philippine Taekwondo Association
- Philippine Rowing Association
- LGU Sports Office of Pasig City
- LGU Sports of Quezon City
- Philippine Amateur Baseball Association
- National Academy of Sports
- Philippine Olympians Association
- MVP Sports Foundation
- Adrenaline Solutions
Last October 23, Coach Noli Ayo and Coach Marc Dagenais, co-founders of AS, met Atty. Moreno in Discovery Suites Ortigas to review the results of the program. The evaluation was so promising that there was a consideration of having a face-to-face program eventually in 2023. It may even become a regular program to engage and connect with sports organizations, national sports associations, and other sports stakeholders in the Philippines. It was envisioned as a way to collectively work together to promote grassroots sports development in the country.
Coach Noli and Coach Marc met in 2018. They connected because they share the same passion to make a difference in the sports industry. They founded Adrenaline Solutions in 2020 as a response to a major shift in the sports landscape. One of its key services is providing sports leadership training and coaching education.
