FORMER collegiate volleyball stars get an opportunity to continue strutting their wares when the Philippine Super Liga Invitational serves up its maiden season next month in partnership with one of the country’s top sports entertainment networks.

SportsCore, the event management group organizing the Super Liga, also hopes to complement the existing volleyball programs in the country.

“We hope the PSL will be the next venue for players to develop high-level skills in a local setting that conforms to the sport’s international standards,” said Ian Laurel, PSL Invitational commissioner and SportsCore vice president.

“The PSL should be a league that puts premium on the advancement of a volleyball player to pursue the sport after college.”

The popularity of women’s volleyball is on a high mainly due to the programs put in by University Athletic Association of the Philippines, the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the other leagues to combine the premier collegiate leagues’ stars.
