Wanted: Team chemistry
Officials of the star-studded national women’s volleyball team have a checklist of things to improve on when the squad troops to Japan for a two-week camp from July 17 to Aug. 2.
That includes speed, floor defense, blocking, killer instinct and mental toughness.
But assistant team captain Aby Maraño wanted to add just one more: Develop chemistry.
“I’d like to leave all the issues behind us in the Philippines, start anew in Japan,” she said. “Let’s not waste the opportunity to learn and train.”
“We want to go out there with fresh minds and fresh legs,” added national team member Denden Lazaro.
