Organizers eye better second season of CYVL
WITH the success of the Cebu Youth Volleyball League (CYVL) which concluded last Sunday, tournament coordinators are planning to put together a better second season, which will likely kick off within this year, so they can help players hone their skills and gain experience.
The opening season, which garnered the interest of six teams from Cebu, gave a chance to seldom-used and training pool athletes to play against the best 15-year-old and under players.
CYVL’s Mario Sala is planning to separate high school and grade school players next season to give equal opportunity to players and teams.
In the first season, some players from grade school had to compete against high school stars.
Take the case of the CYVL Finals in which the Abellana National School (ANS) Team A, composed mainly of high school athletes, played against the University of San Carlos-Grade School (USC-GS) team that was powered by a single high school player in Ressel Pedroza.
“We are planning to have three categories specifically the Grade School Girls, High School Training Pool Girls and High School Girls Competitive,” Sala said.
Sala added they plan to open the second CYVL season after the Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL) begins this September.
“Our season 2 will follow after the CYBL. By that time, basketball games will be played and it’s the best time to invite participating schools to join volleyball,” Sala said.
