Sen. “Bong” Go extended his warm congratulations for the successful groundbreaking of a new sports complex in Siniloan, Laguna, 20 January.

The senator was set to personally attend the event but had to cancel due to the inclement weather in the area. Go was also scheduled to attend the fiesta celebrations in the town of Famy in Laguna.

Go, as Chair of the Senate Committee on Sports, cited that the completion of the sports facility is just one of the government’s ways of bringing the residents together to strengthen the community while promoting grassroots sports development.

The project, which was funded through the support of Go as Vice Chair of the Senate Committee on Finance, is anticipated to serve as a venue for holding different sports activities for the community.

Go urged the youth of Siniloan to engage in sports instead of indulging in vices such as illegal drugs.

A staunch advocate of sports development in the country, Go authored and co-sponsored Republic Act No. 11470, establishing the National Academy of Sports (NAS) in 2020.

The law is in line with Go’s vision of providing a dedicated learning facility where promising young athletes can further hone their talents while getting quality education. The NAS Main Campus is located at the New Clark City Sports Complex in Capas, Tarlac.

The academy is equipped with world-class sports facilities, housing and other amenities on par with international standards. Sufficient number of classrooms and other facilities have also been built at the complex to provide a conducive learning environment for all the students.
