For Love of Game: Valdez takes lower paycheck to play in Thailand

Local volleyball superstar Alyssa Valdez will be receiving less than what a club in the Philippines can offer her as salary playing for 3BB Nakornnont but the experience of playing and carrying the country’s pride in the Thai League is more than enough compensation. The two-time UAAP champion is more focused on learning from her stint and going back to spread the knowledge and experience she gained at home. “I think this is really big (playing abroad). It’s well known na here sa Philippines yung volley. I think we need to level up and I think one way of getting it is for players going to different countries to play and go back here and share everything,” said the 23-year-old open hitter in an earlier interview. “’Yun naman din ang goal and para maging inspiration din sa mga bata na aspiring volleyball players.”    The former Ateneo de Manila Queen Eagle was formally welcomed by the Thai squad by presenting her the team’s jersey where she will wear the no. 9 uniform – the same jersey number she wore while playing and winning three titles for University of Sto. Tomas high school in the UAAP. As for the specifics of her contract, a source from Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc., which processed her release paper to play abroad, Valdez will earn 30,000 Baht (P42,000) as monthly salary while playing for the club in the Thai League and the Thai-Denmark Super League.                 Valdez’s monthly paycheck will be way below what she had earned with her last local team Bureau of Customs during the V-League Reinforced Conference few months back. The three-time UAAP Most Valuable Player reportedly received a six-digit contract from the Transformers for the two-month tournament. Valdez flew to Thailand last Sunday and will stay there until early April. She’ll debut for 3BB Nakornnont on January 29 against King-Bangkok. Valdez also vowed to return next month to join either the Cebu or Davao tryouts for the national team that will see action in the 29th Kuala Lumpur Southeast Asian Games.     The local volleyball phenom was a part of the national squad during the Singapore edition of the biennial meet where she was also chosen as Team Philippines flag-bearer during the traditional parade of nations.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles     .....»»

Top-2 teams clash as Beermen takes on Elasto Painters

More than halfway through the 2017 Philippine Cup, the no. 1 and no. 2 teams finally meet on the court as the PBA resumes Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena. Coming in with an incredible six-game winning streak, two-time defending champion San Miguel Beer test the steady Rain or Shine Elasto Painters in the main game at 7:00 p.m. Already assured of a quarterfinals berth, the champs continue their chase for a playoff bonus while also trying to improve upon their league-best 7-1 mark. Meanwhile, Rain or Shine looks to also make its case in the quarterfinals but a win might win more for the Elasto Painters as James Yap and co. look to hold off a horde of teams in the middle of the standings. At 5-2, ROS is only currently one game ahead of three teams sitting at third and only 1.5 gameas up of two teams sitting at .500. A victory over the Beermen also means that the Elasto Painters can still make a play for the no. 1 overall seed. In the first game at 4:15 p.m., both Globalport and NLEX hope to build on their respective victories to the new year. The Batang Pier are one of the three teams which are one game behind the Elasto Painters and a win, coupled with the Beermen also emerging victorious, would put Globalport tied for second heading into the weekend. Meanwhile, the Road Warriors push for their first winning streak under the Yeng Guiao era after finally stoppid a five-game slide last week. .....»»

Nobody is assured of a slot in the national team -- Vicente

Aspiring players seeking inclusion to the national women’s team will need to work and earn their spot to represent the country in the 29th Kuala Lumpur Southeast Asian Games. Head coach Francis Vicente buckled down to business after getting the nod from Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. Thursday to handle the team that will see action in the biennial meet set from August 19 to 31. The University of the East and national youth team mentor said that even the so-called stars and popular names will need to go through the process of screening and tryouts.   A national tryout set on February will be held in Manila, Cebu and Davao where Vicente will pick 16 players for the national pool. “Gusto ko ibalik ang dating sistema na halos magpatayan ang mga players para sa iilang slots sa national team,” said Vicente. “Gusto ko makita silang magutom kasi dun natin mapapatunayan na handa silang gawin lahat para sa bansa natin.” Once formed, the national team will participate in the Asian Under-23 Championship and Asian Senior Championship as part of their build up for the SEA Games.  Vicente, a decorated mentor who steered the University of Sto. Tomas girls high school team to numerous titles and molded the likes of Alyssa Valdez, Kim Fajardo and the Santiago sisters Dindin and Jaja into volleyball gems, said that he will be strict with the process of choosing the members of the national team. He’s looking at a player’s dedication and willingness to sacrifice for the flag and country.  “Nobody is assured of a slot in the national team,” said Vicente. “Even if you’re my former player like Alyssa Valdez, everybody has to go through the process.” “You have to dedicate yourself. You will no longer carry the colors of your university or your club or your league,” he added. “You will carry the colors of your country. So I want her to submit herself if ever she’s interested in joining the national team.”  Valdez, who was a part of the national team that competed in the Asian U-23 Championship and the 2015 Singapore SEA Games where she was also chosen as the country’s flag-bearer during the traditional parade of nations, is set to fly to Thailand on January 15 to join 3BB Nakornnont in the Thai League and Thai-Denmark Super League until April. Valdez, Dindin Santiago-Manabat, Jaja Santiago as well as Aby Marano, Rachel Anne Daquis, Jovelyn Gonzaga, Denden Lazaro, Jia Morado, Bea De Leon, Rhea Dimaculangan, Grethcel Soltones and Maika Ortiz represented the country in its first volleyball participation in the SEA Games since 2005.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»
