Posted in NCAA Volleyball, Notable Players, UAAP Volleyball, Volleyball News

In volleyball’s recruiting wars, one player stood out among all high school players. This is none other than Jirah Llaneta of Perpetual Help – Molino. A 5’7 1/2 outside hitter, she has amazed UAAP and NCAA coaches with her hang time and leaping ability as well as her ability to score both using power and smart attacks and through very sharp service aces.

In the recently concluded STCAA (Southern Tagalog Calabarzon Athletic Association), among all coaches who talked to her, FEU and UST are the most aggressive, with the coaches promising her a first six slot in the team next season. The coaches of  ADU and NU are also constantly talking to her. She has likewise trained with both the UAAP Season 74 finalists DLSU and ADMU and has impressed both coaches.

Posted in Philippine Volleyball Federation, Volleyball News

To fit the P30M budget for the upcoming SEA Games 2011 in Indonesia this November 11-25, the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) had to trim down the delegation for Team Philippines. SEA Games co-deputy Julian Camacho confirmed major cuts have been made in team sports like volleyball, baseball, and futsal.

Ateneo Open Tournament 2011 – cash prize of P10,000 for the Volleyball event

Posted in Others, Volleyball tournaments

Other than the basketball, football, and frisbee events, there’s going to be a volleyball event as well in the first Ateneo Open Tournament 2011 happening this October 15 and 16 (Sat/Sun) at Ateneo de Manila College Covered courts.

Entry fee per team for the volleyball event is P3,000. Reserve a slot now by visiting this page.

This 2-day league is being organized by the Ateneo Volleyball Club (AVC) and Women’s Basketball Club of Ateneo which seek to raise funds for the Ateneo Alumni Scholars Association. This will benefit the future scholars of the school.

This kind of weekend volleyball tournaments are ideal for those recreational volleyball groups out there who wants to get a chance to compete and meet with other fellow volleyball groups. And since there are cash prizes, this can be a means to generate funds as well. The only problem I see is the fact that it’s literally “open” to any teams and/or players regardless of level of play. So expect a few hard-core volleyball teams who play for money to join.

Here are some more details:
