Majority of the games are played on Saturday and Sunday at the Faith Indoor Sports Arena and Activity Center on the institution’s campus in Tanauan, Batangas until Aug. 23. Schedule and results of the games can be viewed at the league’s website at www.uccl.ph.

Aside from the men’s, women’s and boys’ basketball, other events on tap are the men’s, women’s boys and girls volleyball; the men’s and women’s beach volleyball; the boys and girls football and mixed chess.”

Arim said they intend to add track and field to the roster.
