PSL eyes more out of town volleyball games

BAGUIO CITY June 14 – Volleyball enthusiasts around the country will have the chance to personally see their favorite players right in their places following the expected conduct of more out of town off season and regular games of the Philippine A Super Liga (PSL) in the coming months.

PSL Chairman Philip Juico said the conduct of more out of town off season and regular games in various parts of the country will serve as a venue to discover young and upcoming volleyball talents who might be given a chance to play with their favorite players in various competing teams during the upcoming regular season games.

Last week, selected volleyball players from various PSL teams played an exhibition match with a local selection from the different colleges and universities to spice up the interest of volleyball enthusiasts to patronize the game and entice more locals to patronize the game.

Juico said the PSL is currently looking for a local partner to help in organizing the conduct of more out of town off season and regular games of the PSL in the city so that national and local organizers will be able to include the desired games in the finalization of the schedule of games for the upcoming seasons.

The PSL official underscored volleyball is one of the major sports in the country that is currently gaining ground in the grassroots level, thus, there are teams who are going around the different education centers to look for new talents who will be given the appropriate exposure for the development of their skills in the game.

Juico claimed Baguio has the chance to become one of the country's sports capital because of the availability of sufficient sports facilities that could actually comply with national and international standards prescribed for various types of sports competitions.

Mica Reyes, a stalwart of the Philippine women's volleyball team, said there is a bright prospect for volleyball in the country because of the increasing number of players being developed and those who are emerging from the different parts of the country, thus, they are supportive of the initiative of the PSL to conduct more out of town off season and regular games around the country to inspire more athletes to join in local, regional and national competitions.

Reyes claimed that by conducting volleyball clinics in the different parts of the country, there will be a bigger chance to discover young and upcoming talents who will succeed them in the said sport.

She explained that there is a bright future for volleyball in the country and that the chances of the Philippines in future international competitions is also good provided that members of the Philippine team will be given the chance to be together for a longer period of time for them to be able to work as a team.

Reyes is a full time volleyball player who has a live contract with one of the teams competing in the regular season of the PSL which is expected to start on June 23, 2018, thus, players are taking advantage of the out of town off season games to aggressively promote the league in their various stops around the country.
