Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been a plethora of studies dedicated to the effects of sports participation and various constituents concerning academic performance, but little is still known about the correlation between online sports training and online learning setup. The primary purpose of this study is to grasp the correlation between online sports training on the academic performance and athletic performance of DLSMHSI SHSSHS student-athletes attending online sports training. The study utilized an online self-made 31-item questionnaire covering the respondents’ demographics, time spent per day for academic-related and sports-related work, and sections for both athletic performance and academic performance of the 61 bona fide DLSMHSI SHSSHS student-athletes who answered. Using Pearson correlation, the correlation between the number of hours spent on online sports training and overall athletic performance yielded a p-value of 0.293. In terms of academic performance for General Weighted Average and time management, the p-values yielded were 0.642 and 0.223, respectively. Overall, student-athletes are able to employ efficient time and stress management skills as online sports training did not negatively affect their academic and athletic performance. This study has proven useful for institutions to use as a model for future online sports training programs.
