THE finals for the much-awaited 21st season of the Women’s Volleyball League, one of the country’s biggest and longest-running volleyball tournaments for girls, is finally near.
Organized by the Basketball Efficiency and Scientific Training Center and sponsored by Milo, the finals will be held on March 5 at the San Beda College Gym.
Saint Pedro Poveda College and St. Paul College Makati will be competing in the 17 and Under Developmental Division, while King’s Montessori School Team A and San Pedro Relocation Center National High School will face each other for a championship victory in the 17-and-Under Competitive Division.
Qualifying for the 13-and-Under Development Division are Colegio San Agustin Team A and School of Saint Anthony.
Another team from Colegio San Agustin will try to thwart King’s Montessori School in the 13-and-Under Competitive Division.
The finals will also hold a tournament to determine WVL’s 3rd and 4th placers, as well as a championship consolation game for 17-and-Under Competitive Division, wherein King’s Montessori School Team B will play against St. Scholastica’s College Team A.
“Another season has come and we are very excited to see a lot of young girls showcase their passion for volleyball,” said BEST Center founder Nicanor Jorge. “WVL serves as a great venue for these girls to test their skills and abilities in volleyball and it enables them to gain confidence in playing for major competitions. We are looking forward to producing more promising young girls who will someday be representing our country in big leagues.”
Because of the clinic’s dedication to not only producing future champions but also promoting sports and physical fitness among kids, BEST Center was cited by the Philippine Sportswriters Association and received the Olympism Award from the Philippine Olympic Committee as a Hall of Famer.
Meanwhile, WVL also recently received a citation from the Philippine Sportswriters Association last Feb. 13, 2017 during its PSA Awards Night “for being a consistent breeding ground of young talents in volleyball for the past 20 years.”
By continuously organizing sports event such as WVL as well as SBP-Passerelle Twin Tournament, an annual basketball competition for kids aged 9-14, BEST Center is confident that the sport in the country will continue to grow in both popularity and equality.
