Larong Pinoy Mini-Olympics Sports Fest


Published on

This document is team-building activity using sports as a platform; specifically, using the Traditional Filipino Street Games as activities. The program is organized by Magna Kultura Foundation, the National Organizer of the Filipino Games in the Philippines.

The Palarong Pinoy events are conducted in a Mini-Olympics sports format with referees, marshals, and a tournament system that organizes adults into teams with Team Captains and Coaches. Adults are immersed into fun games like: Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Piko, Luksong Lubid, Luksong Tinik, Chinese Garter, Sipang Bilangan, and various Pinoy relay race games.

Larong Pinoy Games are equally fun and challenging. It’s an unforgettable experience that each and everyone will cherish, as it will bring out the child in every participant. It will bring back the good ‘ol days when they all use to play it.

The program is organized to make the Traditional Filipino Street Games available for adults. Organizing Larong Pinoy Sports Fest for Private companies is among the cultural entrepreneurship approaches of Magna Kultura to revive the Games of our Heritage (Laro ng Lahi) among Filipino adults who use to play the games; so that they too can teach their children how to play the games. Thus, bring back the Filipino games back in the mainstream of Philippine society, among children and adults.

  8. 8.  Palarong Pinoy Mini-Olympics is a one-of-a-kind event activity that will surely be the “talk-of- the-office” ; everyone will re-live their childhood memories and discuss with fellow-employees. It’s one-of-a-kind. It breathes youthfulness among employees. It bonds the young and old.  Unlike the usual sports (like basketball or volleyball), with Larong Pinoy almost everyone could play; even non-players could cheerfully participate, actively cheering & jeering at the sidelines.  It takes less days and organizing expense than conducting a basketball tournament, considering that honoraria for basketball referees is P500.00 per game --- not to mention that there are two referees and two more table officials --- so officiating cost per game averages P2,000.00, excluding venue fee per hour --- multiplied by the number of games in Round Robin matches that could take many days (weeks) of games. Sometimes other employees don’t attend games. Larong Pinoy is the Game of our Heritage. A truly Filipino company can make a difference among their employees and in the business community THE ADVANTAGES OF A LARONG PINOY SPORTSFEST Outsourcing the Sports Fest for A Hassle-Free Company Event Organizing a company event could be a tedious task for internal organizers. While it will be fun for employees playing in the event, it can be exhausting for the HRD and/or Sport fest Committee, “robbing” them of the fun that they to should be enjoying. It’s all about CREATING IMPACT in the lives of employees and letting them feel the Value of the company they work for. The advantage of having a professionally organized corporate event are:  It takes away from employees the hassle of organizing and coordinating everything. It will let the staff just do more productive work for the company while the event gets organized properly.  It ensures for a more professional conduct of an event with an “Olympic”-like atmosphere, letting employees partake in an event that is professionally organized. The conduct of the program is more professional --- it’s like a real “Olympics”! And employees would definitely feel like being a part of what seems like a “big” event. And every employee would credit the company’s effort for giving them the best that they deserve.  Employees would see the difference of a professionally organized event: with all the tournament system and format; with the all the game marshals, materials and ground set-up.  The impact that it creates will surely be credited to the company’s image of putting value in the corporate team bonding activity.
