It is my honor and pleasure to serve as the International Advisor and welcome you to join us for the 1st International Conference of Sport Pedagogy, Health and Wellness (ICSPHW 2016), organized by College of Human Kinetics (CHK), the University of the Philippines (UP), in conjunction with the Executive Board Meeting of Asian Council of Exercise and Sports Science (ACESS) to be held on 18-20 November, 2016 in Manila, Philippines.
Madam Geraldine Bernardo and Prof. Oscar Santelices, in tandem with the Organizing Committee, has identified the ICSPHW 2016 conference theme: “P.E.+: Retooling Physical Education and School Sports for Inclusion, Development and Competition “. Particular emphasis will highlight the interdisciplinary co-operation between physical education, sports, exercise science, health and the emergent and critical need to re-position our shared profession in physical activity and sports science. Our repositioned professional role is guided by the shared responsibility we morally must address having been handed the baton by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon during his landmark and razor-sharp 2011 presentation to the United Nations. Ban’s remarks reflected only the second time in the history of the UN that health related issues represented the keynote topic of discussion by the Secretary General. Secretary General Ban emphasized the need for governments, academic institutions, civic groups, businesses and individuals to band together to create sustainable, systemic change impacting individual and community health and wellness. The linkage of Physical Education and Health is an excellent vehicle for achieving this challenging task.
ICSPHW 2016 provides an ideal and strategic platform for teachers, scholars, practitioners and government administrators from various academic disciplines and institutions to interact, and share best practices, preventative strategies and research in exploring the new direction of school PE, health and sports including special groups. ICSPHW 2016 is committed to finding curative solutions within the framework of establishing an international PE and Exercise Science Network. 27 international renowned speakers and Future Leaders, and 25 local practical workshop presenters representing 18 countries worldwide have lent support to this first historical conference of ICSPHW 2016 to be held in Philippines.
The two and a half day conference is formatted to interweave thought-provoking presentations, workshops and group sessions with ample time to personally interact with your colleagues from around the world. Sometimes the best ideas and solutions are the unexpected result of exchange in informal settings and dialogue. We are confident that you will feel that all are reflective of the warmth and hospitality of Filipinos and the mixed Asian, Pacific Islander, Western and Hispanic cultures, defining and enriching your ICSPHW 2016 experience.

Welcome Message from the Founder of the Sport Managment Council of the Philippines
Sport Management Council of the Philippines
It is a dream to organize this conference with the theme PE Plus: Retooling for Inclusion, Development and Competiton, as it is a theme that needs to figure front and center in the consciousness of the general public.
While we celebrate the handful of medals and the few popular sports, future elite competitiveness and the wellbeing of Filipinos are contingent goals, which can only happen when we institute a wider and stronger base of sports participation.
Ceratinly, we can achieve these through well-programmed and effective implementation of P.E. and School Sports. For those who understand this, they can do no less than to continue to promote and imbibe this importance. After all, P.E. is STILL education! And studies upon studies have proven that.
The Sport Management Council of the Philippines (SportPhil) is a strong advocate of sport for all the right reasons. The decision to engaging with the University of the Philippines is our way of helping them and for other organizations to come, furthering their objectives to strengthen the competencies of our P.E. teachers, coaches, and trainers, as well as showcase relevant researches in the field. The level of care and detail accorded to the design and organization of the 2016 International Conference on Sport Pedagogy, Health and Wellness is a testament to UP’s desire to share and enhance knowledge.
We are deeply humbled and grateful for the magnificent support by the Asian Council of Exercise and Sport Science (ACESS), the International academic communities and our local partners in government and in the private sector. More than ever, we need the synergies of all stakeholders, not only for this conference but also for networking and future collaboration towards our collective efforts in sports, in whichever field or endeavor it may be.
Each one of us has a role in sport development. I enjoin all to take advantage of this first international conference of its kind and to come away more determined and equipped.
I wish everyone a sporting life!
