Being the face of Philippine volleyball comes with a handful of responsibilites and perks, and among those is getting to go around the country to share knowledge and experience to the future faces of the sport.
That's exactly what Phiippine volleyball superstar Alyssa Valdez did over the weekend, as 'The Phenom' flew out to Cagayan De Oro for a meet and greet as part of a fundraiser for the Xavier University Cagayan De Oro volleyball team.
As expected, the volleyball fans in CDO made sure that the multi-time UAAP women's volleyball MVP and champion got a very warm welcome.
The CDO chapter of Alyfinity, Valdez's biggest fan club, was there when their idol landed...
...while delegates from Xavier University and the Oro Spike Club were also there to welcome 'The Phenom."
Lucky fans were able to meet, greet, and have photos taken with Alyssa...
...and some of the young talent in CDO also got to show their skills off with the Philippine volleyball watching.
While this was certainly an amazing experience for the fans in Cagayan De Oro, it's also a step towards growing the game of volleyball making sure that it touches even more people in the Philippines. Alyssa is just one of the many reasons why the game of volleyball is as popular in the country as it is today.
