This study employed the descriptive method of research. Quantitative data were collected that served as basis to come up with a proposed action plan to enhance the Sport Development Programs of Sorsogon City Division. The respondents were 60 athletes and 30 coaches. The sampling method used was a total enumeration of the population. Survey, unstructured interview and document analysis were the data gathering procedures done using survey questionnaire, interview guide and documents showing results of Palarong Bicol 2017 - 2019 as instruments. The statistical tools employed were frequency count, rank and mean percentage. The training of athletes was mainly concentrated in a school and division based level. Most of the coaches had one to two years of coaching experience and generally attended up to Division Training and Accreditation for coaching only. Funds and Facilities and Equipment were perceived to be inadequate by athletes and coaches. The Sorsogon City delegation ended at bottom rank in the Palarong Bicol 2019 and in the past two consecutive years. There are varied problems encountered by the Sorsogon City athletes and coaches in the Sport Development Program and one noted problem is the inadequate funding. The plan of action was designed for the intensification of the implementation of Sport Development Program for the City Division of Sorsogon. It was recommended that Sorsogon City Division may improve continuously the implementation of Sport Development Program by increasing the number of training and tournament exposure of the athletes specifically in the events in which their participation is minimal. The Sorsogon City Division may continually improve the training and accreditation attended by the coaches through engagement in national and international training available as the funds warrant. The Sorsogon City Division may allocate sufficient funds for allowances of coaches and sports officials and prioritize the provision of appropriate facilities and equipment by establishing linkages with private institutions, NGOs and GOs.
