The Philippine national women's volleyball team flew to Thailand on Saturday morning to begin its 12-day training camp.
Ten members of the 16-woman National Volleyball Team flew to Thailand on Saturday morning for a 12-day training camp in Bangkok.
Head coach Shaq Delos Santos and skipper Aby Marano led the bulk of the team that will undergo intensive training and tune-up matches at the FIVB Development center as part of the Nationals’ preparation for the inaugural Southeast Asian Grand Prix and the 30th SEA Games in November in Manila.
During their stay, the Nationals, who are backed by Rebisco, are scheduled to play four to six practice matches behind closed doors against two Bangkok-based club teams and a pair of University teams.
Joining Delos Santos and Marano were Fil-American spiker Kalei Mau, Alohi Robins-Hardy, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Mylene Paat, Majoy Baron, Ces Molina, Roselyn Doria, Dawn Macandili and Kath Arado.
Other members of the squad Alyssa Valdez, Jia Morado, Maddie Madayag, Eya Laure, Jovelyn Gonzaga and Iris Tolenada are set to join the team on Sept. 15.
The Nationals will then proceed to Nakhon Ratchasima after breaking up camp for the SEA Grand Prix from Sept. 20-23.
