LVPI charts future of national volley team

Officials of the Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas Inc. (LVPI) convenes today to plot the formation of the National Team that would see action in two major international tournaments this year.

LVPI acting president Peter Cayco yesterday said they would come up with a shortlist of possible coaches and listen to their plans and programs to kick off the formation of the team that would campaign in the AVC Asian Women’s Seniors Championship and the 29th Southeast Asian Games.
He hinted that Philippine Superliga coaches Sammy Acaylar and Francis Vicente are included in the list for being part of LVPI coaches’ commission.
“It’s a full-time job,” said Cayco, who was tasked by the federation to oversee the formation of the team. “So we’re looking for a head coach who can devote his time and energy to the National Team.”
Cayco added that they are looking to appoint a head coach by the second week of January and roll out the tryouts to formally assemble the 16-woman squad, which would be composed of rising stars and veterans.
The team would train regularly and would be given exposures in various countries like Thailand, China, South Korea and Japan.
He said everybody is welcome to join regardless of league memberships or affiliations.
“If they have the time and very much committed to be part of the team, they’re in,” he said. “We will not pick depending on popularity or past achievements. What we’re looking for is their commitment. Do they have the time and energy to be part of the team?”
“Everybody is welcome. Everybody would be invited for the tryouts. It’s going to be an honest-to-goodness selection process with no politics involved.”
