7th Asian Girls Volleyball kicks off on October 11-18, 2008

The Philippine Volleyball Federation (PVF) is now busy preparing for the 7th Asian Girls (18 and below)  Volleyball tournament on October 11-18, 2008 at the Philsports Arena.

PVF president Pedro Mendoza was happy to announce that Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) allowed us to host this international event to strengthen the grassroot level of Philippine Volleyball.

“It is a great pleasure for our country to host this (Asian Youth Girl’s) international grassroots event. Yes our RP girls team will also compete there,”  Mendoza said.

The countries participating in this 18 and below meet are Japan (defending champion), Australia, China, Chinese-Taipei, India, Indonesia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Philippines.

“The Asian Volleyball Confederation and the FIVB have wished us good luck with our hosting. It is also good to know that there will be more countries which will attend,” Mendoza said.

The last time the Philippines hosted Asian Youth Girl’s championship was 2005 in Mandaue City, Cebu, wherein China ruled.

“We at the PVF are very serious to bring volleyball back to our country’s sporting map,” according to Mendoza.

“At the same time, we are very determined to develop and hone our girls team to become members of our national women’s senior team too,” Mendoza said.

However, PVF have selected 18 players to be members of the National Women’s volleyball squad that will join future international tournaments.

I think you are confused with the RP girl’s team from the women’s team. RP will never play with China because of its volleyball supremacy. RP will only face our SEA teams such as Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and so forth. Now, the women’s squad is mostly composed of collegiate and former collegiate players. Maybe they lack the height but I assure you they have the talent and skills to play. The question is, “Are they capable to play cohesive as a team with a heart to win?” Remember, Thailand and Vietnam strengthened their volleyball program, including international exposure. If this team can be given good support from our NSA and PSC, we have a chance to win some games in the near future. Nonetheless, it boils down to good implementation of such program to achieve what is the objective of this RP squad.

this is really good…i love to see adamson players playing for the national team..gud luck team.

The composition of the national women’s squad looks good in papaer. Let us see them in action when they will play international tournaments. Good luck to them, I wish they could at least beat Vietnam in their coming games. I heard that Vietnam has strengthened their volleyball program. However, Thailand still the no. 1 in volleyball in SEA. I wish the RP squad the best.
