PNVF board member Charo Soriano ready to take on challenge to unite volleyball

Beach Volleyball Republic hailed the election of one of its founders Charo Soriano as a board member of the country’s newly-formed volleyball association Philippine National Volleyball Federation Inc. (PNVFI).

Soriano, 35, was one of the 13 board members of the federation composed of the numerous stakeholders of the sport.

The product of Ateneo is hoping that the election held last Monday at East Ocean Palace in Parañaque City paves the way to uniting the fractured volleyball community.

“Admittedly, the road that paved the way toward a united volleyball community had many pitfalls, but today is different – today is all about hope, unity, and commitment,” said Soriano in a statement.

The youngest member in the PNVFI Board, Soriano was proclaimed by the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) in the elections held at the East Ocean Seafood Restaurant in Parañaque City on Monday.

The proud daughter of Tuguegarao has been in charge of the country’s Beach Volleyball National Team program since the last SEA Games in 2019, where both the men’s and women’s teams garnered Bronze.

“Everything that has made an impact in my life, from personal to professional experiences, has come from getting involved,” said Soriano. “It is truly such an honor to be part of the federation and to materialize our responsibility to make the dreams of the Filipino volleyball athletes come true.

“At the end of the day, it is my personal calling and mission to give back to the sport that taught me so much about life – on and off the court.”

The FIVB is expected to officially recognize the PNVFI during the world volleyball body’s online world congress on February 5-7.
