NCAA inviting 3 more schools to join

THE National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) on April 3, 2009 agreed to work on three invitations before Season 85 opens on June 27 at the Araneta Coliseum.

But league president Fr. Matt De Jesus, OSB, of host San Beda did not reveal which three schools, among Arellano University, Angeles University Foundation, Emilio Aguinaldo College and Lyceum would comprise the desired 10-team roster.

“We have decided which schools are those, maximum 10, but we haven’t extended yet the invitation because we would still meet on the conditions,” De Jesus told inboundpass during their emergency board meeting at the Casa Espanol.

“Let’s just say we’ve decided but we can’t go public about it until we have finalized or determined everything. Hopefully after Holy Week we will have some definite points to show.

“If none of them would accept, we’re stuck with seven,” he said.

Reverend Father Rector, however, clarified that the participation of the three schools that would be chosen is not related in any way to their separate applications for membership next year.

“We’re not tying it up with their application, this is different from their application that’s why we want to differentiate it,” said De Jesus.

Father De Jesus also added that all schools including Philippine Christian University, which is on an indefinite leave of absence, can apply for membership starting this year.

“This year we’re open to schools applying so long as they meet the requirements. They have to apply, we don’t set a limit, we’re not expecting any yet,” said de Jesus.

The league actually drew seven or eight applicants last year with Arellano, AUF, Lyceum and EAC making the final grade. None, however, was accepted after failing to get the required two-thirds vote from the board.

The move to add three instead of the original plan to invite just one could form what could be the start of a “super league” that was earlier envisioned by some groups last year.

“We’re not planning that but if this will be part of the further development then I believe that would be good for the NCAA,” said Father de Jesus. “Certainly I’m very bullish to whatever it is that would benefit the league in the end.

“If this is part of the whole process of a program that would go on for years, no its not. But if this would improve the league, if this will increase the level of performance as well as the level of athleticism then I’m all for it.”

3 invited schools to ‘save’ other NCAA events
by Josef Ramos

The decision of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) to add three more schools by invitation for the coming 85th season would create more opportunities for the country’s oldest collegiate league.

A reliable insider from the Management Committee (Man Com), who requested anonimity, told inboundpass on Saturday, April 4, 2009 that the country’s oldest collegiate league is targeting to increase its stake in the box office and fan-base.

“Yes they are searching how to improve the league in terms of tickets sales and other matters because if they play with seven schools, it would be hard for them,” said the NCAA insider. “At the same time, the league really wants to improve in all aspects.”

But ManCom member Henry Atayde of Saint Benilde, in a separate interview, clarified that it is not the tickets sales and other marketing matters why the NCAA has wanted to add three more schools this season. ”

“Other sports in the NCAA are suffering except basketball,” said Atayde. “That’s why we want to add three more schools this season and we will require them to participate maybe in five or more events.

There are a total of 10 NCAA sporting disciplines – basketball, volleyball, tae kwon do, table tennis, lawn tennis, football, chess, athletics, swimming and beach volleyball.

Atayde admitted that next season – where the Philippine Christian University will be out in all events – there would only be three participating schools in football and four in swimming. “That’s our problem right now if we don’t expand.”

PCU had filed an indefinite absence this season after serving a one-year suspension two years ago due to the “identity switching fiasco” it committed in Baketball’s Junior Division.

League president Fr. Matt De Jesus, OSB, of host San Beda did not reveal which among Arellano University, Angeles University Foundation, Emilio Aguinaldo College and Lyceum would comprise the 10-team roster this year.

“We have decided which schools are those, maximum 10, but we haven’t extended yet the invitation because we would still meet on the conditions,” said De Jesus. “But we can’t go public about it until we have finalized or determined everything.”

“If none of them would accept, we’re stuck with seven,” he said. “Hopefully after Holy Week, we’ll make a decision.” The San Beda rector, however, clarified that the participation of the chosen three schools is not related in any way to their separate applications for membership next year.

De Jesus said all schools including Philippine Christian University, which is on an indefinite leave of absence, can apply for membership starting this year.

Meanwhile, the NCAA has started to lay down the steps for the inclusion of Olympic sports boxing, fencing, archery and air rifle (shooting) into its yearly calendar of events this season.

Fr. De Jesus, OSB, added that all sports must go through the long process using the same procedure applied to beach volleyball and soft tennis, which are still in their early stages in the league.

Fr. De Jesus further explained that for a ceratin sport to be included, it must have an official letter of intent filed with the National Sports Association. Then the NSA will then find a school to sponsor the sport and prove that it is financially viable. Initially the recommended event will be a demonstration sport in the first three seasons before it can be approved as a regular event by the Policy Board and the Management Committee.

naku po, mukha ngang tinamaan na rin ng financial crisis ang NCAA, kailangan ng fresh capitals.. the question here is, if any of the schools that will serve as "guest teams" will opt to join NCAA in that status, would the NCAA consider them as a full member by the next season? san ba titingnan yan? paramamihan ng ticket receipts or performance sa games?

kawawa rin kung nag-invest ang mga school applicants this season and then di rin pala mako-consider na bonafide member next season kaya you could also look at it in the school applicants' perspective na why waste resources if we're just gonna be a guest team then at the end di pa rin pala makakapasok.

from what I gathered, the formal invites for the guest teams and already been given to the 3 schools but for some reason all three are taking some time to reply to the NCAA MANCOMM if they are accepting the invites or not.* Since the requirements are similar to what the NCAA asked of them to comply in their application as regular member last year, it should have been easy to pass the NCAA requirements for guest teams.* But it seems even though last year they said last year that they can compete at the required number of sports it is turning out to be a bluff as this seems to be problem requirement for the schools as they seem to have no teams ready to compete in a number of sports.

Now the ball is at the side of the invited guest teams ..... this is it. Upto the Great Danes, Chiefs and Generals to decide.

Arellano, 2 others invited as Season 85 guest teams
Business Mirror Sports

Monday, 20 April 2009 21:29

ARELLANO University, Emilio Aguinaldo College and Angeles University Foundation have been invited by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) to become guest teams in the league’s 85th season.

Fr. Mat de Jesus, OSB, season president of host San Beda College, however, stressed the invited schools will have to follow the conditions set by the league.

The teams must pay a P1.5-million entrance fee and a P500,000 bond. They must also participate in mandatory sports such as athletics and swimming.

NCAA Management Committee (Mancom) chairman Jose Mari Lacson said the league has given the three schools until Friday to send their replies.

The league opens with the basketball competitions on June 27 at the Araneta Coliseum.

De Jesus clarified that inviting a team does not mean it will be automatically admitted as a regular in the next season.

“It’s a different thing. They still need to apply,” said de Jesus.

If the three schools agree to join the season as guest teams, the number of squads—at least in basketball—will jump to 10. The regular members are San Beda College, Jose Rizal University, Letran, San Sebastian College-Recoletos, University of Perpetual Help, College of Saint Benilde and Mapua. Philippine Christian University has filed an indefinite leave starting this season.

Close this MANILA, Philippines - Three months after they were turned down in their bid to join the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Arellano University, Angeles University Foundation and Emilio Aguinaldo College are now on the verge of making the roster as guest teams of the country’s oldest collegiate league.

Realizing the need to expand its fan base, the NCAA last week invited the three schools to beef up the seven-school league for its 85th season, which reels off on June 27 at the Araneta Coliseum.

“More teams mean more supporters,” said NCAA president Fr. Mat de Jesus of San Beda. “To put it simply, the more the merrier.”

Of the three schools, only Arellano has welcomed the invitation, with marketing director Val Cayco saying the school “will definitely join even if it’s a guest team status.”

Arellano and six other schools, including AUF and EAC, failed to make the grade in February after the league’s policy board failed to come up with the needed two-thirds vote to accept them.

Lyceum was also a candidate to be a guest team but the absence of a high school program, a requirement to join the NCAA, doomed its chances, according to Inquirer sources.

Arellano, AUF and EAC, however, need to cough up at least a P1.5 million entrance fee and a P500,000 bond, NCAA management committee chair Mari Lacson of San Beda said.

They are also required to participate, not just in basketball, but track and field and swimming.

The league has given the three schools up to April 24 to formally accept the invitation, Lacson said.

But De Jesus clarified that joining the league as regular members is an entirely different thing.

Arellano to comply with NCAA requirements for guest teams
04/21/2009 | 07:34 PM
–GMANews.TV

MANILA, Philippines - Arellano University has signified its intention to comply with all the conditions set by the National Collegiate Athletic Association in order to participate as a guest team this season.

“We are ready to meet all the requirements and we are looking forward to playing in the NCAA," said Val Cayco, Arellano’s marketing head and athletic affairs officer.

One of these requirements is the mandatory participation in basketball, volleyball, track and field, and swimming. The financial requirements include the payment of the entrance fee of P1.5 million plus an additional P500,000 cash bond.

The acceptance of Arellano U as guest school came after its failed attempt to apply for membership last year.

Cayco announced the appointment of Junjie Ablan as head coach of its senior basketball team in place of Leo Isaac, the Chiefs’ athletic director. Isaac was supposed to coach the many-time Fr. Martin Cup and NCRAA champion but is now no longer eligible being the head mentor of Barako Bull in the PBA.

The Chiefs will parade the same lineup they entered in the NCRAA, its mother league last year, with the exception of Orlando Daroya, who already used up his eligibility.

Aside from Arellano, the NCAA has also sent invitations to prospective guest teams Angeles University Foundation and Emilio Aguinaldo College.

Arellano vows to meet ‘NC’ requirements
April 21, 2009, 5:56pm
Manila Bulletin

Arellano University has vowed to meet all the conditions set by the National Collegiate Athletic Association so it can become a regular member by next season.

One of these requirements includes mandatory participation in other events like volleyball, track and field and swimming.

Val Cayco, Arellano’s marketing chief who also handles the school’s athletic affairs, also announced the appointment of Junjie Ablan as head coach of its senior basketball team which will see action in the NCAA basketball tournament starting June 27.

“We’re ready to meet all the requirements. We’re looking forward to playing in the NCAA,” Cayco said.

Arellano University is one of three guest schools that will play in the coming NCAA tournament. The two others are Pampanga’s Angeles University Foundation and Emilio Aguinaldo College.

Leo Isaac, Arellano’s athletic director, was supposed to coach the team, but has become ineligible because he is currently coaching the Baako Bulls in the PBA.

“But I would be there as athletic director to give coach Junji advice and guidance,” said Isaac.

The Chiefs will parade the same roster they entered in the NCRAA, its mother league last year, except for its top gun, Philippine Basketball League standout Orlando Daroya.

EAC joins Arellano as NCAA guest team
04/22/2009 | 05:12 PM

MANILA, Philippines – Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC) will be joining the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) 85th season.

EAC followed Arellano University to confirm its participation as a guest team this season according to the Generals’ school officials.

“EAC’s board of director already approved it. We’re going to pay the fees," said EAC men’s basketball coach Gino Manuel

The NCAA management committee has set an entrance fee of P1.5 million and P500,000 cash bond that the invited schools would pay in order to participate in the league. Participating schools also needs to field teams in each of the mandatory events.

“We are excited. I am looking forward to a good campaign," said EAC athletic director Nomar Isla. “We already started looking for players in different events. We are already scouting in preparation for the NCAA season."

Isla said they plan to field teams in all events including the junior division where they plan to tap the athletes with its high school partner, Immaculate Concepcion-Dasmariñas. “Our recruitment is ongoing. It will not be difficult for us to bring the high school team."

Isla added that aside from clearing the eligibility of some of the Generals’ senior players they are also looking for a dependable big man.

EAC has amassed eight basketball titles spread out in the NCRAA, UCAA and Unigames. Last year, they finished fourth in the NCRAA, second to Universal College in the UCAA and runner up behind eventual champion Ateneo in the Unigames.

The NCAA also invited Angeles University Foundation but the ManComm has yet to hear from their school officials. –

NCAA okays 3 squads as guests
Daily Tribune
04/25/2009

The National Collegiate Athletic Association will parade 10 teams after the three teams it invited to join as guest teams in its Season 85 unfolding on June 27 at the Araneta Coliseum recently accepted the invitation.

League president Fr. Mat de Jesus, OSB of San Beda, yesterday made the announcement following the decision of Arellano University, Angeles University Foundation and Emilio Aguinaldo College to accept the conditions they earlier set.

“All three schools accepted the invitation and conditions so we’re having 10 teams this season,” said de Jesus.

In a two-page letter, all three schools agreed to field in teams not just in basketball but in five other mandatory sports as well — football, swimming, volleyball, cheerleading and centerpiece athletics — with an option of joining other disciplines on a voluntary basis.

Arellano, AUF and EAC also agreed to pay a guest fee amounting to P1.5 million plus a bond of P500,000, which will be refunded at the conclusion of the season provided they will not incur a penalty that require cancellation of the bond.

The three would also have to abide by the NCAA constitution and by-laws, ground rules and all other league rules and regulations and respect the decisions of the Policy Board and Management Committee headed by De Jesus and Jose Mari Lacson, respectively, also of San Beda.

In case of court cases, the school athletes, coaches and other team officials must agree to arbitrate any and all disputes that may arise from fielding a team in Season 85.

But the San Beda rector was quick to stress that being guest teams is entirely different from being member schools.

MANILA, Philippines – It is now official.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) will parade 10 teams after the three schools they invited to join as guest participants in Season 85 agreed to join the league this year.

League president Fr. Mat De Jesus, OSB, of San Beda College Friday made the announcement following the decision of Arellano University, Angeles University Foundation and Emilio Aguinaldo College to accept the conditions they earlier set.

“All three schools accepted the invitation and conditions so we are having 10 teams this season," said De Jesus.

In a two-page letter, all three schools agreed to field in teams not just in mandatory sports such as basketball, football, swimming, volleyball, cheerleading, and athletics. They also have an option to take part in the other events.

Arellano, AUF, and EAC also agreed to pay a guest fee amounting to P1.5million plus a bond of P500,000. The bond will be refunded at the end of the season provided that the schools will not incur a penalty that requires cancellation of the bond.

The three would also have to abide by the NCAA constitution and by-laws, ground rules and all other league rules and regulations. They should also respect the decisions of the policy board and management committee each chaired by De Jesus and Jose Mari Lacson, also of San Beda.

In case of court cases, the school athletes, coaches and other team officials must agree to arbitrate any and all disputes that may arise from fielding a team in Season 85.

The San Beda rector pointed out though that being guest teams is entirely different from being member schools.

“The policy board, by inviting your school to field guest teams in Season 85, is not admitting your school as a member of the NCAA or giving due course to your application," said de Jesus. “The process of selecting additional NCAA members is entirely separate and distinct from the fielding of guest teams and this invitation is not a precedent for guesting in future seasons."

Philippine Christian University (PCU), which took an indefinite leave of absence this year, may reapply for this season for inclusion in NCAA’s Season 86.

The 2009 edition would have its opening ceremonies on June 27 at the Araneta Coliseum followed by senior’s basketball games.

Arellano, AUF, EAC join NCAA as guest teams

MANILA, Philippines – Arellano University, Angeles U Foundation and Emilio Aguinaldo College have all agreed to see action in this year’s NCAA, making it a 10-team field in the basketball competitions set to start June 27 at the Araneta Coliseum.

League president Fr. Mat de Jesus, OSB, of host San Beda yesterday said the three schools had agreed to the conditions earlier set by the league before they could play as guest teams in the country’s oldest collegiate league.

“All three schools have accepted the invitation and conditions, which means we’ll be having 10 teams this season,” said De Jesus, who arrived Thursday night from an official trip in Singapore.

The three teams will thus join Mapua, Letran, San Sebastian, Jose Rizal U, St. Benilde, Perpetual Help and defending three-time champion San Beda.

Arellano, EAC and AUF all agreed on the league conditions, including participation in six mandatory sports – basketball, volleyball, football, swimming, cheerleading and centerpiece track and field.

The guest teams will also pay a fee worth P1.5 million and a cash bond amounting to P500,000, which is refundable at the end of the season.

The three also agreed to abide by the NCAA constitution and by-laws, ground rules and all other league rules and regulations and respect the decisions of the Policy Board and Management Committee chaired by De Jesus and Jose Mari Lacson, respectively, also of San Beda.

Athletes, coaches and team officials of all three guest schools must also agree to arbitrate, in lieu of court litigation, in any and all disputes that may arise from fielding a team in Season 85.

De Jesus, however, stressed that the three schools’ acceptance as guest teams does not mean gaining league membership.

Three NCAA ‘additions’ flabbergasted

By Beth Celis
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 23:34:00 05/05/2009

Filed Under: Basketball



SHORTLY AFTER guest schools Arellano University, Emilio Aguinaldo College and Angeles University Foundation were assessed P2 million each (P1.5 million for tournament fee, P500,000 for bond), the NCAA management committee informed them that athletes who participated in the last NCRAA (National Capital Region Athletic Association) would not be eligible to play in this season’s tournaments.

According to the committee, an athlete is required a year’s residency if he participated in another major league the previous year like, for example, the NCRAA. The requirement does not apply to freshmen and athletes who did not compete in any organized tournament in the previous year.

The three schools were reportedly flabbergasted. Arellano and EAC, both NCRAA regulars, had agreed to join the NCAA even only as guest teams, based on the premise that the athletes they had trained in the NCRAA will be “elevated” to the NCAA.

Now the league is telling them to scrounge around for new players. They will have to start from scratch. In the case of basketball, they only have two months to form a new team since the opening is set on June 27.

Time constraint is not the only problem. Where will they get their players? A basketball Team B is definitely not competitive, assuming any of the three schools has one.

An all-freshman lineup, on the other hand, will be a pushover.

“For sure, the three newcomers will become the whipping boys of the league—which defeats the purpose of acquiring additional teams, as envisioned by television coveror ABS-CBN,” said an official of one of the schools.

He pointed out that in the case of the College of St. Benilde, the school was allowed to field in their NCRAA athletes when they joined the NCAA some years back.

Now that's a whole lot of crap. Matters like these should have been foreseen and if to be enforced, should have been informed of and stipulated long before the application period started though only for "guest" status.

If this was a ManCom decision, I wouldn't be all surprised. After all, most in there are a bunch of morons and imbeciles who are only after the gain of the schools they represent regardless whether it destroys the league or not.

I guess the beef here is that the NCAA considers the NCRAA as a 'major tournament', thus making the players who suited up there requiring a one-year residency.

This is also known as the Lou Gatumbato/Aris Dimaunahan rule.

Bumping this thread.
The NCAA is starting in a couple of weeks and we still do not have news regarding the eligibility issues for the 3 guest teams.

Given this, do they really have to start from scratch as mentioned in the previous posts since the NCRAA is considered a major league?

AFAIK, the NCAA reduced the age limit by a year starting this school year.
