More choices for national volley squad
Philippine volleyball will reboot its program by getting six more players to bolster its pool to a 20-woman squad.
Soon after the Philippine Superliga All-Star team arrives from a competition in Thailand, the coaching staff will meet to discuss the expansion of the squad which will eventually eye the gold in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games here.
“By next week we will sit down and make selection although I have something in mind already,” acting Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. president Pete Cayco told the Inquirer.
“We will have 20 players in the pool, so we will make additions and I would like to get more players from the PVL (Premier Volleyball League) like Myla Pablo.”
Cayco had already talked with PVL officials regarding schedules and he said they appeared amenable to accommodate the national team calendar.
At present, the Philippine team has a 14-woman pool that includes just one PVL player, superstar Alyssa Valdez.
