Capital1 Power Spikers: A New Force in PVL


The Capital1 Power Spikers, the freshest addition to the Premier Volleyball League (PVL), are making headlines with the return of renowned coach Roger Gorayeb. This seasoned coach, alongside experienced players, aims to prove their mettle in the professional arena during the upcoming 2024 season, slated to kick off in February.

Gorayeb’s Vision for Capital1

Despite the last-minute formation of the team, Gorayeb emphasizes the significance of experience in player selection. He expresses confidence in building a well-experienced starting six, leaning on the expertise garnered from past collegiate and club volleyball tournaments. Gorayeb’s focus is to secure a respectable PVL debut for Capital1, driven by the wealth of experience within his roster.

Challenges and Confidence

Addressing the challenges of a newly formed team with limited preparation time, Gorayeb draws parallels from his coaching history. He cites instances, such as with Ateneo and Balipure, where he successfully formed competitive teams even with minimal experienced players initially. Gorayeb remains unwavering in his commitment to avoid finishing at the bottom, showcasing the strict training methods that define his coaching reputation.

Players’ Gratitude and Expectations

Players like Aika Guino-o and Joyce Sta. Rita Navarro express gratitude for the opportunity to play under Gorayeb’s mentorship. Guino-o, who chose Far Eastern University over Gorayeb’s recruitment in high school, sees this as a chance to contribute to her team’s success. Navarro, having played under Gorayeb before, acknowledges the coach’s strict training but is confident in the team’s ability to adapt swiftly.

Capital1, replacing the disbanded F2 Logistics, joins other PVL clubs in this highly anticipated season.

Heading into PVL Debut
