Former Lady Maroons Nicole Tiamzon flew to Iloilo for a leg of her ‘Spike and Serve’ clinic at the North Fundidor Gym, Molo, Iloilo City and the Leon Multi-Purpose Covered Gym in Leon Iloilo on December 16-17, 2017, respectively.
With volunteers from the University of the Philippines Visayas, the University of San Agustin, and her staff of two – Allen De Guzman of the FEU Tamaraws and Marvin Soriano of the Siena College of Taytay, the team conducted a half-day volleyball clinic for kids of different ages.
The activity aimed to create an avenue for sports development, promote competition, and enhance community building in the grassroots level. Tiamzon started the organization ‘Spike and Serve’ as a commitment to help underprivileged youth across the Philippines through the sport that she loves - volleyball. “I see my volleyball career as a platform to influence the youth, especially the underprivileged in a positive way … as well as to become productive members of the society,” she said.
‘Spike and Serve’ in Iloilo City and Leon, Iloilo was made possible through the efforts of Team Legend’s Mr. Ruding Villaruz, Iloilo City Mayor Jose Espinosa III and Leon Municipal Mayor Rolito Cahilig.
