Mamon, Alinsunurin to look at key factors in PNVF’s Subic tryouts

Coaches will put a premium on skills, height, and work ethic in the selection of members of the national volleyball and beach volleyball teams as tryouts kick off in a bubble environment on Wednesday at the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority.

Volleyball coaches Odjie Mamon (women) and Dante Alinsunurin (men) set specific policies, guidelines, and parameters when they pick from the 40 women and men aspirants who arrived in Subic onboard quarantined buses and vans on Wednesday morning.

“We are looking at specific qualities for specific positions, and not the individual, but the aspirant’s qualities himself or herself,” Mamon said.

“We will be focusing on basic skills on offense and defense, as well as height, tactics or strategy, attitude, leadership, and championship experience,” Alinsunurin said.

Beach volleyball coaches Paul Jan Doloiras (women) and Rhovyl Verayo (men) set the same policies and parameters in the selection of national athletes who will be focusing on the Hanoi 31st Southeast Asian Games in November.

The volleyball tryouts will be on Wednesday and Thursday at the Subic Gym, while the beach volleyball tryouts will be on Friday at the Subic Tennis Courts.

Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) president Ramon “Tats” Suzara said everyone is clear to travel to Subic for the tryouts after the results of the RT-PCR tests conducted on Monday and Tuesday at the mega swabbing center at the Mall of Asia Arena were released to the participants.

The swab tests were made possible through the PNVF’s local government unit partner Taguig City under Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano.
