Alaska Launches Girls Volleyball Powercamp
Sports are not just for the boys. Calling all girls who wish to learn the fundamentals of volleyball. Train like a champion by joining the Alaska volleyball camp for girls five to 18 years old.
Learn from volleyball star Michele Gumabao, who played for the De La Salle Lady Spikers for four years (2010-2013). She will lead a team of volleyball experts in teaching aspiring young girls the most important aspects of the game.
Gumabao led De La Salle to three consecutive titles in the UAAP and was named best blocker during their first two championships and the Finals MVP in the third. She graduated with a degree in Marketing Management from De La Salle and now plays in the Philippine Super Liga as team captain of the Philips Gold Lady Slammers.
The camp will be held at the Ateneo De Manila Grade School covered courts. Module 1 will be held April 13 to 24 and module 2 will be held May 4 to 15 from 2 to 5 p.m. The program includes training in basic volleyball skills like passing, serving and spiking.
“It will be taught by volleyball players who want to impart their knowledge and experience with the girls. We will help develop the skills of participants and make them ready if they want to join varsity teams in the future,” said coach Michele.
According to the 7th National Nutrition Survey of the Food and Nutrition Research Institute and the Department of Health, obesity is increasing with nearly two out 10 children considered as overweight. Under-nutrition is also a public health concern.
Alaska hopes to address both concerns through its power camps in basketball, football and now volleyball.
The Alaska power camp will not just teach skills. It will also teach the value of proper nutrition for the growth and development of the players. The safety and well-being of the players will be top priority according to coach Michele.
The volleyball power camp embodies Alaska’s philosophy that sports can instill the value of discipline, hard work, teamwork and determination among the girls.
“We will be covering all the skills related to volleyball like serving, passing, blocking and spiking. Most of all the camp will teach discipline, dedication and hard work,” said coach Michele.
The Alaska power camp will help young girls develop the most important skills in volleyball as well as the fundamental values and necessary attributes for success not just in sports but in everyday life.
In helping the youth become better athletes through the volleyball power camp Alaska helps them become productive members of the community.
