“This is our contribution to grassroots volleyball,” said Juico, adding that they would also implement all existing PSL rules and allow college players to use tablet and challenge system during actual competition.
“Since we want to prepare these college players for what lies ahead in the PSL and the national team, we’re more than willing to give them valuable experiences on how it feels playing in the league. The earlier they start, the better for their respective volleyball careers.”
“In honoring our women’s volleyball league, you have validated our years of honest hard work and sincere advocacy. This honor strengthens our resolve to face the many challenges before us.”
“The fact that the PSL is the only organization from the Philippines who was named as one of the finalists in this category brings not only added joy, but greater responsibility.”
“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,” said Juico.
“We’re looking forward to harnessing more talents through a successful staging of this developmental tournament.”
The league will raise its curtain on Oct. 30, but the CGS and formal opening ceremony will be held on Nov. 3 at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
