A few days before Christmas, volleyball officials got together in an effort to unite but LVPI
wasn't invited to the meeting.
A source of confusion is the POC recognizes LVPI
as the NSA for volleyball but the international governing body continues to accredit PVF.
We were not aware of it but if its unification they're talking, we welcome it," said Cayco, the LVPI
The PVF used to be the sport's governing body until the PVL, formerly the Shakey's V-League, and the PSL joined hands to topple the former, paving the way for the formation of LVPI
, now headed by Joey Romasanta and Peter Cayco.
Sources said the LVPI
is also keen on appointing Foton coach Moro Branislav as national training director to oversee the preparation of both the men's and women's teams.
The letter from Lausanne describes the LVPI
"as the legitimate and exclusive authority" of the sport in the Philippines "under the leadership of its President, Jose Romasanta and its Secretary-General Ricky Palou to govern volleyball and beach volleyball.
I am really dismayed with LVPI
and how it has been handling the ITC problems,' said Ricky Palou, president of the organizing Sports Vision.
Despite the pullouts, the Larong Volleyball ng Pilipinas will 'push through' with the one-day affair, said LVPI
vice president Pete Cayco.
FIVB general director Fabio Azevedo said the ad-hoc commission tasked to settle the leadership dispute between the LVPI
and the Philippine Volleyball Federation decided in favor of LVPI
The coaches and the LVPI
saw something in me and it's now my job to grab that opportunity and prove that I belong with the team.
And to correct the oversight, LVPI
acting president Pete Cayco said they would schedule a special tryouts for four of Ateneo's players-Mark Espejo, Jia Morado, Maddie Madayag and Kat Tolentino-just so they get 'to display their talent and fight for slots in the national pool.
bore the brunt of a public backlash after Morado, who has been tearing it up in the UAAP this season, was excluded from the list.
