The inaugural Philippine Superliga Collegiate Grand Slam winner will get a prize any college program craves for.

In the conference’s launch Thursday afternoon at the Club Pilipino in San Juan, PSL acting president Dr. Ian Laurel announced that the champion will bag a 7 to 10 day Thailand training camp, sponsored by the league.

“We know that the teams joining the tournament are using this tournament as a preparation for their collegiate leagues. So, we saw it fit to give the winner help in their preparation,” Laurel said.

Headlining the field for the first-ever Collegiate Grand Slam are the 2018 PVL Women’s Collegiate Conference champions University of the Philippines Lady Maroons.

UAAP rivals University of Santo Tomas Golden Tigresses, Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws, and University of the East Lady Warriors will also join the fray.

Completing the field are the DLSU-Dasmariñas Lady Patriots and the Colegio San Agustin-Biñan Eagles.

“We expect these young players to join the club ranks in the next couple of years. That’s why we realized that we should develop them this early and prepare them for the tough grind ahead,” added PSL Chairman Philip Juico. “We’re looking forward to harnessing more talents through a successful staging of this developmental tournament.”

The tournament kicks off on November 3.

Miguel Luis Flores fell face first into sports writing in high sch9l and has never gotten up. He reluctantly stumbled into the volleyball beat when he started with Tiebreaker Times three years ago. Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
