After two years, collegiate sports will be making its official return in the country this coming March.

According to the Tiebreaker Times’ published report, multiple collegiate insiders already confirmed that both the UAAP and the NCAA might kick off this March 26, 2022, in their separate bubbles.

Both collegiate sports organizations have been waiting for the official date of their resume as they wrap up their respective training bubbles in preparation for the season.

The UAAP and the NCAA will only be airing two sporting events when they begin, the men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball category.

Both the men’s and women’s basketball event will be taking place first followed by the volleyball events to be held in their assigned bubbles.

Over the weeks amid their season preparations, the UAAP and the NCAA confirmed that they have been active in their online and bubble training.

In the case of the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons, the team has been practicing in their campus bubble since January and is being hosted by their school with regards to their lodging and workout.

Meanwhile, the Ateneo Blue Eagles squad also began their bubble a month ago and confirmed that they have been catering their volleyball and basketball teams inside.

On the other hand, in the NCAA, San Beda, Lyceum, and the University of Perpetual Help were reportedly conducting their training bubble after the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) allowed collegiate sports to set up their respective training grounds.
