The Philippine Swimming League (PSL) resumes its grassroots development program with the staging of the 73rd PSL-Diliman Preparatory School (DPS) Leg Series on February 28 to March 1 at the DPS swimming pool in Quezon City.
PSL President Susan Papa said the competition would serve as selection for future international competitions in Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Shanghai, India and Japan.
“We will continue to develop these young kids, hone their skills and at the same time teach them the right attitude of a true champion. In PSL, we are not just focusing on technical aspects. We are also giving importance on the character side,” stressed Papa.
Two swimmers (one boy and one girl) with the highest FINA (International Swimming Federation) will be awarded with the President’s Trophy and additional P1,500 cash reward each.
The Most Outstanding Swimmer trophies will be given by age band— 6-under, 7, 8, 9, 10 11, 12, 13, 14, 15-16 and 17-over. “Everyone is welcome to participate. No membership requirement,” said Papa.

The PSL is now revving up for the prestigious 2015 World University Games scheduled in July in Gwangju, South Korea.
