CEBU CITY – The Cebu Volleyball Association, after hosting the biggest province-wide volleyball tournament in the Philippines, is planning for the establishment of a volleyball academy in Cebu.
Glenn Soco, co-chairman of the Gov. Gwen Garcia Unity Volleyball Cup, said they will send a proposal for a volleyball academy to the Philippine Volleyball Federation.
Soco said the academy will also serve as the training venue for the “proposed” Visayas training pool.
”We will be proposing to PVF to have a training camp for the national players here in Cebu,” Soco said.
He said one problem with the players from Visayas and Mindanao who are in the national training pool is that they have a hard time adjusting to the Manila lifestyle.
He said this is also evident in other national players from the other sports who are forced to return home after not being able to sustain their needs while in Manila.
”To become effective during the training, there is a need for PVF to share their modules with our local coaches in the proposed volleyball academy,” Soco said.
If the proposed volleyball academy will be realized, Soco said they plan to put up a training venue and dormitories in Carcar, which is interested in hosting the academy.
He said the academy will not only be limited for the national training pool but will also include those who want to have advanced training in volleyball.*PNA
