    UPBEAT is the UAAP on the decision of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for Emerging Infectious Diseases to allow the resumption of practices for collegiate teams in the country.

    In a statement on Monday, the league welcomed the development as it takes a step closer in the hopeful return of the games.

    "The University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) acknowledges the decision of the Commission on Higher Education to create a technical working group that will craft guidelines for the return to training of collegiate athletes. The UAAP is committed to helping with this initiative as one of the stakeholders of collegiate sports in the country," it read.

    "We will be presenting our point of view as an athletic association as well as those of our individual member schools responsible for the care of student-athletes. We will also consider all possible implications as our priority remains the health and safety of student-athletes."
