Engaging in sports is a healthy way of releasing energy among the youth, not discounting the not-so-young. It combines physical, mental and social skills development. Makati Hope offers eight varsity sports programs - badminton, basketball, volleyball, table tennis, chess, and track and field.
The teams are being trained by highly skilled and competent coaches, some of whom are members of the national team. Varsity players who demonstrate both potential and commitment to train are tapped to represent the school in inter-school competitions.
MHCS has recently garnered consistent runner up and championship wins in volleyball (Champion, 2017 Filipino-Chinese Alliance Volleyball League; 4th Place, NCAA Pacific Rim Basketball Championship and Traill Volleyball Invitationals 2017 held in Bangkok, Thailand; 1st Runner Up for 18 Under Division, Christian Schools Athletic League 2018 Championship; 2nd Runner Up, 2nd Filipino-Chinese School Alliance Volleyball League Mondes Cup 2018), basketball (1st Runner-up, 2016 Filipino-Chinese Alliance Basketball League; 2nd Place for Division 1 and 3, NCAA Pacific Rim Basketball Championship and Traill Volleyball Invitationals 2017 held in Bangkok, Thailand; Champion for 12 Under Division, 1st Runner Up for 15 Under Division, Christian Schools Athletic League 2018 Championship), kids athletics (Champion, 2017 Spring Festival Newcomers Track and Field Meet), chess (2nd Runner-up, 2016 LSMS Chess Championships) and badminton (several individual and team awards, Christian Schools Athletic League 2018 Championship). These successes are a testament to the thriving sports program of MHCS and its commitment to the holistic development of its students.
The athletics program is also extended to the faculty and staff. Teachers and office personnel undergo training alongside the track and field varsity team not only to improve their health and fitness but also to prepare for inter-school sports fests such as the Filipino-Chinese Amateur Athletic Federation’s Mini Olympics held February 16, 2014 wherein MHCS emerged as the overall champion. MHCS was also the back-to-back champion in the sportsfest organized by the Association of Chinese-Filipino Schools in the Philippines in 2006 and 2008, besting other Filipino-Chinese schools with much larger delegations.
