Brooke Van Sickle, Savi Davison eager to fulfill dream of playing for the Philippines


Savannah Davison and Brooke Van Sickle are both thrilled at the possibility of representing the Philippines after deciding to switch federations in hopes of donning the country’s colors in future international tournaments.

After spending the past months playing in the Premier Volleyball League, it seems that the Fil-Canadian Davison and the Fil-American Van Sickle have already fallen in love with Philippine volleyball and are eager to contribute to its growth and success on the international stage.

“If given the opportunity, it would be surreal to represent the Philippines. Representing any country is a huge achievement, but representing a country where the support and love for the game reach different heights is something you can only dream of,” Davison told Tiebreaker Times.

“It’s definitely an honor to be able to represent the Philippines for sure. We’re still working out on things, I’m just doing what I’m told. But it will be an honor for sure,” Van Sickle said shortly after the conclusion of the 2024 Premier Volleyball League All-Filipino Conference.

Van Sickle and Petro Gazz teammate MJ Phillips, who is also in the process of switching federations, are currently affiliated with USA Volleyball, while Davison is registered under Volleyball Canada.

The Angels star was named Most Valuable Player in her debut in the recently concluded All-Filipino Conference. She also helped Petro Gazz clinch the bronze medal after they edged out Chery Tiggo in the third-place series.PVL-2024-PLDT-vs.-Capital1-Savi-Davison-4912 Brooke Van Sickle, Savi Davison eager to fulfill dream of playing for the Philippines News PVL Volleyball  - philippine sports news

If given the chance to represent the Philippines, Van Sickle and Davison said that it would be a huge honor for them after witnessing the passion and love of Philippine volleyball fans firsthand.

“I am super grateful to even be having these conversations about maybe being a part of the National Team. Hopefully, it will allow some opportunities for learning more about Philippine volleyball,” said Davison, who grew up in Toronto, Canada.

“I’d be super grateful to be able to represent this country and I’m welcomed with open arms. I’ll work hard,” added Van Sickle, whose mother hails from San Emilio, Ilocos Sur.

Davison also shared her excitement about her possible team-up with Van Sickle, revealing that they have touched on the topic of representing the Philippines in previous conversations.

“I have not talked to Brooke specifically about the switching of federations, but we have touched on it a couple of times. I think both she and I are just waiting to hear what comes next.”
