How to use Muscle Tape properly

Posted in Others, Sponsored Posts

More and more athletes are using therapeutic tapes nowadays. In volleyball, players usually tape the shoulder area as well as the knees and elbows as these are the frequently injured and strained body parts. There are several therapeutic tape brands available in the Philippine market today and you can buy them at sports shops like Chris Sports, Toby’s, and Olympic Village. Muscle Tape (costs around P650 per roll) is perhaps the most widely used locally because its made of high quality material but at the same time, it’s cheaper than the US brands.

Only 3 school teams confirmed to be part of Shakey’s V-League 8 2nd Conference

Posted in Shakey's V-League, V-League Season 8, Volleyball News

I’m not too sure if this is good or bad news. But it’s certainly very interesting. On one hand, losing a lot of school teams can pave the way for the commercialization of teams for Shakey’s V-League as they take in and give chance to corporate teams (so to speak) to participate. Maybe it’s time for the V-League to take risks and create more of these non-school based teams and not merely capitalize on the popularity of college volleyball. Besides, UAAP and NCAA will always be there. Let’s hope that the upcoming Shakey’s V-League Season 8 Second Conference is going to be exciting because of these turn of events. Let’s watch out and support the V-League folks!

Philippines to host FIVB World Grand Prix again?

Posted in International Volleyball, Volleyball News

Rumors of the Philippines hosting the Grand Prix in Cebu in the near future spurted out from Volleywood.net and now, I see the article being spread all over Facebook accounts – thanks to the like and recommend buttons. Mr. Ace Asas, the man behind the international volleyball site, confirms this to be very likely to happen and in fact his “source” (who is very reliable and apparently very secret as well) says that the deal between the FIVB and Philippine Volleyball Federation (PVF) is currently being negotiated. Let’s hope the Philippines gets this opportunity once chance.

The FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix is the premier annual women’s global volleyball tournament that features 16 teams. This 2011, Macau is hosting the Grand Prix finals happening this August. About ten years ago, a leg as well as the finals match of the Grand Prix were staged at the Philsports Arena and Araneta Coliseum in Manila, Philippines. Leila Barros was adored by the Filipino fans back then.

Here’s the full story taken from Volleywood.net’s article:
