Rebisco Volleyball Academy launched

Rebisco Volleyball coaching referee
Rebisco RVA

To play at an elite level in international competitions and ultimately score a podium finish has always been the country’s volleyball dream.

But to become elite in any sport, the effort must begin in the grassroots.

Thus Republic Biscuit Corporation (Rebisco), a committed supporter of Philippine volleyball, launched the Rebisco Volleyball Academy to train coaches and game officials on international coaches and refereeing standards to put them at par with their counterparts in other countries in Asia and the world.

Rebisco Volleyball Academy launched

The snacks and biscuits company believes that the development and competitiveness of volleyball athletes are due to the quality of coaching and officiating in the schools. Thus, coaches and referees must learn concepts, skills, and modern, scientific approaches for the game consistent with international standards.

The 5-day courses for volleyball coaches and referees had a pilot run in Naga City, Tacloban City, and Cagayan De Oro City last March and April. Four more courses were conducted in October and November in Numancia, Aklan; Dauis, Bohol; Infanta, Quezon and Morong, Rizal in response to LGU requests.

Over 200 coaches and 200 referees benefited from the courses conducted by volleyball experts. They were conducted in person, endorsed by local government units, and approved by the IATF. Strict health and safety protocols were followed. Theory courses highlighting scientific research, game trends, new philosophies, and concepts were shared with coaches who were oriented based on a unified system for volleyball coaches’ training worldwide. Coaches were also given the opportunity to exchange views and experiences with trainers and fellow coaches.

Referees meanwhile participated in drills and on-court activities that improved their technical abilities, perceptive responses, and judgment decisions. They were also given the most comprehensive interpretation of game rules.

“We learned new skills, new tactics, and new rules that will help us a lot in handling our players and in refereeing the game. All that we learned from Day 1 to Day 5 we will take to heart and put into practice when we go back to our schools. We thank Rebisco for this opportunity. This is only the beginning,” said Coach Lutchina Tabuso of Timoteo Reyes Memorial School in Morong, Rizal.

“We are happy that the Rebisco Volleyball Academy is now a reality. It is the fulfillment of a grassroots program approved by the Philippine Sports Commission that aims to, among other things, develop a pool of people with technical volleyball know-how who can teach and improve the level of competition in their respective areas,” explained Noric Ng, Business Unit Head of Rebisco.

“The Academy will fire up volleyball enthusiasm in the provinces after the long hiatus from the pandemic. Ultimately, we hope to attain our long-term goal of being able to compete at a higher level locally and abroad,” Ng added.

ONE Championship™ (ONE) returned to the Singapore Indoor Stadium with ONE: NEXTGEN, which aired live on Friday, 29 October. The event featured a pair of explosive kickboxing matchups, an action-packed heavyweight mixed martial arts showdown, a rematch between two fierce strawweights, and the semifinal round of the historic ONE Women’s Atomweight World Grand Prix.

In the main event, former two-sport ONE World Champion and current #3-ranked atomweight contender Stamp Fairtex showcased superior striking technique, keeping Grand Prix alternate Julie Mezabarba at the end of her kicking range for three full rounds to take home a unanimous decision victory.

Stamp controlled the distance early in the first round, forcing Mezabarba on the defensive with a plethora of kicks and hard feints. The Brazilian tried to close the gap in the second, even landing a takedown, but Stamp executed a beautiful sweep and wound up in full mount. The Thai then battered Mezabarba with a series of sharp elbows from top position.

In the final round, Mezabarba charged forward with punching combinations, but Stamp wisely used the full length of the Circle to keep her opponent at bay. With the victory, Stamp moves on to the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Grand Prix Championship Final. Gallery Click Here.

In the co-main event, #4-ranked atomweight contender Ritu Phogat overcame a spirited effort from Grand Prix alternate Jenelyn Olsim to win by unanimous decision in the semifinal round of the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Grand Prix. Olsim initially used her striking to keep Phogat at range, but “The Indian Tigress” quickly turned to her world-class wrestling and gained control.

Phogat began the second round with an emphatic slam and then took Olsim to the mat at will. The Filipina kept it interesting by attacking constantly with submission attempts off her back, but Phogat was relentless with her chain wrestling and earned the victory on the judges’ scorecards. With the win, Phogat advances to the tournament final. Gallery Click Here.

Highly decorated kickboxing champion Iraj Azizpour made a triumphant ONE Championship debut, beating Anderson “Braddock” Silva by unanimous decision after three back-and-forth rounds. Azizpour made his power known early, knocking down Silva with a high left kick that clipped him on the temple in the first stanza. Silva survived and made it a more competitive fight in the second, turning up his offense while Azizpour kept coming forward. The third frame was close, but Azizpour was able to take the victory on the judges’ scorecards. Gallery Click Here.

In a showdown of undefeated heavyweights, Kirill Grishenko left it all in the Circle, punishing ONE Championship debutant Dustin Joynson across three grueling rounds to win a hard-fought unanimous decision. Grishenko took full command with his wrestling, bringing Joynson to the ground and keeping him pinned down in the first round. The Belarusian lit up Joynson on the feet in the second, connecting with a series of spinning backfists and elbows. Joynson came alive in the third but couldn’t close the gap as Grishenko ran away with the victory. Gallery Click Here.

Jeremy Miado put on a masterful striking performance, stopping Miao Li Tao once again to punctuate their strawweight rivalry in a highly anticipated rematch. Miado came out guns blazing in the first round, pummeling Miao with cracking right hands while maintaining distance with his jab. Action continued in the second, but a fierce barrage of punches ended matters abruptly, earning Miado a spectacular technical knockout victory. Gallery Click Here.

A thrilling ONE Super Series kickboxing contest ensued when light heavyweights Beybulat Isaev and Bogdan Stoica met in the Circle. After a closely contested first round, Stoica connected on a huge right hand that sent Isaev crashing to the canvas in the second. Isaev returned the favor in the third frame, forcing Stoica to take a knee from a crushing body shot. In the end, all three judges scored the bout in favor of Isaev to win by unanimous decision.
