MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine national women’s volleyball team is moving its training camp from Laoag, Ilocos Norte to Batangas starting today in preparation for the Asian Senior Women’s Championship slated Aug. 29 to Sept. 5 in San Fernando, Pampanga.

There, they will be joined on Aug. 1 by Brazilian national team coach Jorge Edson Souza de Brito, who arrived Wednesday night from Brazil but had to undergo quarantine until July 31.

Upon arrival, Souza de Brito is expected to name the additional four players to the 16 that were earlier identified to comprise the national team seeing action not just in the San Fernando tilt but also the Hanoi Southeast Asian Games that was reset from November this year to early next year.

Creamline’s Alyssa Valdez and Jia Morado, Kalei Mau and Dawn Macandili are the four who are tipped to make the pool.

Majority of the team, among them Eya Laure, Kamille Cal, Faith Nisperos, Ivy Lacsina, Mhicaela Belen, Alyssa Solomon, Imee Hernandez, Jenniver Nieva and Bernadette Pepito, have trained in Laoag for three weeks under Souza de Brito’s assistant Odjie Mamon.

It is not certain though if the other members – Jaja Santiago, Mylene Paat, Riri Meneses, Dell Palomata – who are playing in the ongoing PVL Open Conference in Bacarra, Ilocos Norte could join the squad.
