Shakey’s V-League Summer Camp 2009 kicks off this March 29

Posted in Shakey's V-League, Volleyball News

Shakey's V-League Summer Camp 2009I’m sure you all heard about this by now. The Shakey’s V-League Summer Camp (and I believe this is the first) will commence this coming March 29 (Sunday) at the Ateneo Blue Eagle Gym. It’s going to be an 8-day program designed for girls (sorry boys) 9-14 years old. This volleyball camp is being organized by Shakey’s and Sports Vision Management Group Inc. – the folks behind the Shakey’s V-League tournament that spearheaded the growth of volleyball in the country since its inception.

As volleyball becomes more and more popular thanks to the supporters and fans of the sport, expect more and more volleyball tournaments, camps, independent groups and clubs, websites, TV shows, and practically anything else volleyball related to happen in the future. I’m predicting that the first ever Shakey’s V-League Men’s Volleyball will take place 2-3 years from now. Or hopefully sooner. Don’t you think it’s about time?

Going back to the volleyball camp, superstars like Mary Jean Balse, Suzanne Roces, Laurence Ann Latigay, and Jinni Mondejar will be among the instructors. I heard other players will also help in the camp and they are Parley Tupaz, Joy Degorostiza, Ma. Teresa Iratay, Michelle Carolino, Mayette Carolino, Margarita Pepito, Patricia Siatan, Boyet del Moro, Leonardo Toyco and Obet Javier. Most of the instructors are players from San Sebstian College if you notice and this is because the camp will be headed by veteran coach Roger Gorayeb.

Dominance and Destiny: A special summary

Posted in Philippine Volleyball Federation, Shakey's V-League, Spikeithard Updates, UAAP Volleyball, Volleyball News

Before we start another page this coming summer of a number of volleyball tournaments, let me first summarize what has transpired the past school year in all volleyball leagues.

Be it UAAP, NCAA, WNCAA, V-League or whichever league there is, the champions this school year were nevertheless the teams who were expected and destined or one whom everyone was predicting to be champions. There were tests in the middle of the way but it’s what made them win and go the extra mile. It is what brought them also to the Promised Land.

Posted in Shakey's V-League, UAAP Volleyball

by Jan Carlo Gavile, Kirsten Evan Regodon and the Extra Miles

I am not biased since I am a Lasallian myself but in fact, I have been impressed with the way the Lady Archers have been playing. In fact, if we were to evaluate each team, La Salle definitely is the most improved. Despite the upset they experienced against UST, I still consider this team as strong the team is more like playing without a guest player since Miss Carissa Anne Gotis is not yet that conditioned and Miss Relea Ferina Saet is seldom being put in the court. Miss Regine Diego has improved a lot in terms of digging and receiving the same with Miss Celine Hernandez who has improved a lot with her spiking and floor defense. Of course, Miss Celine is the Best Blocker in the UAAP so she really is expected to lead the blocking department together with other Green and White middle blockers Miss Jacqueline Alarca and Miss Michelle Datuin. The open spikers Miss Manilla Santos and Miss Stephanie Mercado have been doing a good job in terms of both receiving and of course, attacking. Let’s see if the comeback girls from Taft will bring home their fourth V-League title this conference. But for now, they are waxing hot and are contending to bring back the glory of De La Salle Volleyball.

The Extra Miles – I’m Back!

Posted in Others, Reflections, V-League Season 5

I’ve been busy as you guys can see cause I’m making sulit my volleyball vacation or break. Why? Well, let’s see. What’s in store for the coming months? V-League, UAAP, National Open, Intercollegiate, Home and Away and a lot more so it is but fitting that I used that break to rest myself. And thus, I’m back and so as V-League. How was my break so far? Well, my Green Archers lost to a mightier Ateneo Blue Eagles but no worries, they deserved that. I’m still sad though but not that much. Aside from that, I’ve been meeting a lot of people lately and I’m quite happy with that. I got injured from one of my practices but it’s healing now. Maybe one of the reasons why I’m not gonna go that much to volleyball venues. Haha. And lastly, I miss the volleyball community. Haha. It’s been like 3 or 4 months since I last updated things.
