MANILA, Philippines – After the loud cheers and noises of the recently-concluded UAAP Season ’78 Women’s Volleyball Tournament, Ateneo Lady Eagle Alyssa Valdez has ventured into an exciting new passion: her own skills camp!
Together with Crosscourt PH, a volleyball organization, three-time MVP Alyssa Valdez put up a skills camp especially for young talents looking to hone their skills and ignite their dedication to the sport. To be held in select areas in Metro Manila and nearby provinces, the summer volleyball workshop started last May 5 and will culminate on May 22 as Volley Friends and fans come together through a motorcade, meet-and-greet session, exhibition games and other exciting activities.
“This workshop will give young players the same experience that full-time volleyball athletes undergo,” she said. “More than having intensive clinics and exhibition games, it will teach them how to become stronger individuals and work well in a team. It will be challenging, but also a lot of fun.”, said Valdez while talking about what the participants can look forward to on the Skills Camp.
The Alyssa Valdez Skills Camp is supported by PLDT HOME Ultera as part of its ongoing mission to promote volleyball to young athletes at the grassroots level. “We fully support Alyssa’s commitment to bring her volleyball expertise to budding athletes around the country,” said PLDT VP and HOME Marketing Director Gary Dujali. “Her relentless talent and dedication have helped grow the volleyball community by leaps and bounds. With her stellar performance in UAAP, she is the ideal person to inspire more athletes to bring even more pride to Philippine volleyball. She shares the same values as PLDT HOME Ultera, both in promoting sports excellence and also maintaining strong connections with her family, which she is able to perfectly balance with her volleyball career.”
PLDT HOME Ultera also presented the recently concluded UAAP Women’s Volleyball Season 78 which served as the last playing season for Valdez. Her co-brand ambassadors Mika Reyes and Ara Galang from the De La Salle University will also be joining PLDT HOME Ultera Install Patrol, a nationwide tour which makes volleyball more accessible to the youth, similar to the thrust of the Skills Camp, at the same time bringing ultra-fast LTE connections to more homes with the new Plan 699, the most affordable broadband plan for the home.
The Skills Camp commenced in Laguna and proceeded to Cubao and Batangas, where participants were mentored by Amy Ahomiro, Coach Kung Fu Reyes, Gretchel Soltones and Valdez herself. Selected legs were also graced by guest coaches and Valdez’s fellow Volley Friends John Vic De Guzman, Angge Tabaquero, Mylene Paat, Shaya Adorador, EJ Laure and Bernadeth Pons.
