The Iloilo City Sports Academy (ICSA) is now accepting children aged 5–15 for free training in various sporting disciplines.

The initiative was started by Mayor Jerry Treñas under the supervision of Iloilo City Sports Development Division (ICSDD).

Treñas said the program offers individuals who cannot afford to enroll in sports the chance to develop their abilities, succeed in their chosen fields, maintain their health, and reap the general advantages of sports.

This also acts as a training ground for gifted athletes whose potential is assessed in order to determine whether they can advance to national competitions.
