THE Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas Inc. (LVPI) will soon form a national pool that will keep the members focused on representing the country in international competitions.
Once included in the pool, the players will be restricted from playing in too many tournaments other than those where they represent their respective schools.
Peter Cayco, LVPI vice president, graced Tuesday’s Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum at Shakey’s Malate.
“We noticed that during the last SEA Games, our players were already burned out because of too many tournaments prior to the SEA Games,” said Cayco.
Cayco noted that since the players have multiple teams to play for, they spend so much time on the court, practicing twice a day.
“Burned out,” said Cayco in the session presented by San Miguel Corp., Shakey’s, Accel, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp.
The LVPI will also look for additional sponsors so the players in the national pool can enjoy benefits as if they are playing for club teams.
