BRIEF HISTORY OF NOPSSCEA
The Negros Occidental Private Schools Sports Cultural Educational Association (NOPSSCEA) was organized in 1980 with the merger of the Negros Occidental Private Schools Athletic Association (NOPRISAA) and Negros Occidental Collegiate Athletic Association (NOCAA). The primary purpose was to combine all the sports associations of the Private Schools in Negros Occidental but this was expanded to include the culture and educational activities. It is worthy to note that NOPSSCEA preceded the Ministry of Education Culture and Sports in the inclusion of sports under one body by a few years.
Today, NOPSSCEA’s contribution to Negros Occidental and Western Visayas Sports could not be taken for granted because for many years NOPSSCEA has contributed about 60-70% of the Negros delegation to the Palarong Pambansa.
NOPSSCEA has, likewise, contributed many athletes that donned the National uniform in International Competitions in Football, Track & Field, Swimming, Volleyball, Basketball, Sepak Takraw, Softball, Table Tennis, Cycling, Golf, Shooting and Archery.
NOPSSCEA has a dream – TO PRODUCE AN OLYMPIC MEDAL WINNER FROM NEGROS OCCIDENTAL. This can only become a reality if all member schools will combine their talents and resources to pursue this Olympic DREAM.
We envision NOPSSCEA to be the lead organization of private schools in Negros Occidental that develops and nurtures stakeholders to be better citizens.
We commit to promote partnership and collaboration in education, culture, sports and outreach programs.
CORE VALUES OF THE ORGANIZATION:
Professionalism, Trustworthiness and Respectfulness
Flexibility and Good Governance
Pro-activeness & Innovation
