LVPI sets tryouts for 2018 Women’s National Team

The Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. announced on Tuesday morning that tryouts are going to be held for this year’s National Team.

LVPI vice president Peter Cayco said in a report that initial tryouts will be held on April 13 at the Arellano Law School Gym from 5:00pm to 9:00pm, for the team that will compete in the 18th Asian Games in Indonesia, to be held on August 18 and the 2018 Asian Women’s Volleyball Cup on September 17.

Cayco, who is in charge of the national team program, said that they have selected a new coach to handle the team, but refused to reveal specific details.

“We will come up with a formal announcement about our new head coach any time soon,” said Cayco, adding that the LVPI will be sending formal invites to players who are on their “wish list”.

In 2017, the women’s national team finished eigth in the Asian Seniors Cup and fourth in the Southeast Asian Games.

Stalwarts Alyssa Valdez, Jaja Santiago, Dawn Macandili, Kim Fajardo, and Ces Molina powered the nationals and are expected to have a shot at another national team campaign.
