Creamline’s Dzi Gervacio vows to grow beach volleyball

Creamline’s beach volleyball program has acquired Dzi Gervacio. 

One of the founders of Beach Volleyball Republic, Gervacio was a part of the Philippine women’s team that won the bronze medal in the 30th Southeast Asian Games. The podium finish ended the country’s 14-year medal wait in the sand court.

The former Ateneo star was previously attached with Premier Volleyball League club Perlas Spikers.

“Having Dzi in the Creamline Beach Team is a great addition to the long-term goals and programs that we have. Her experience during the last SEA Games will bring about much-needed prowess in terms of team composition. I’m excited to see her fully embrace the sport and focus on her dreams as a beach volleyball athlete,” said Charo Soriano, Program Director for Creamline Beach Volleyball.

Gervacio will be reunited with Sisi Rondina, Bernadeth Pons, and Dij Rodriguez, who were already part of Creamline’s beach volleyball club last year.

“Ever since I started playing beach, it taught me a lot more perspective with regard to the sport and beyond. I fell in love with it- I wanted to learn more and understand it better. I also know I can grow so much as an athlete with beach volleyball and I’m excited to see how much further I can go!,” said Gervacio on her decision to go full-time in the sand court.

“I’m grateful that Rebisco trusted our mission of growing the sport by providing this platform exclusively for beach volleyball athletes– it’s the first of its kind! Knowing that beach volleyball has now a home, and a nurturing one too, I can’t help but choose this path for me. It’s what we’ve been waiting for, what we’ve been dreaming of, and now it’s here, why not grab the opportunity?”

Last month, Creamline has also acquired the services of Jozza Cabalsa to boost its program.

Gervacio was also named as one of the members of the Philippine National Volleyball Federation’s Beach Volleyball Commission. She was recently appointed as the head of Far Eastern University volleyball program.

On her new journey in Creamline beach volleyball, Gervacio shares her dream for the sport and the steps that it would require to achieve this dream.

“My dream is to grow the sport — to see more beach volleyball athletes, send them internationally not just to participate but to compete and excel in it too! I dream about finally sending a Philippine team to the Olympics! Why not?” said Gervacio.

“The challenge now is to provide a program across the country to identify and develop athletes, coaches, referees, all the sports’ stakeholders and create a sustainable ecosystem for the sport. Make it visible throughout the Philippines through media, because we have a lot of coastal areas, and some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, it’s odd that beach volleyball isn’t one of the more popular sports in our country!”
