Two-time UAAP champion coach Tai Bundit is joining the Adamson Lady Falcons as skills and training consultant. He’ll be part of the coaching staff which includes assistant coaches Lerma Giron and Karlo Santos, as well as former Adamson MVT standout, JP Yude. The team also tapped Noel Zorilla as strength and conditioning coach.
During his highly successful five-year stint with the Ateneo Lady Eagles, the decorated mentor steered the Katipunan-based squad to its first UAAP women’s volleyball gold in Season 76 en route to back-to-back titles and two more runner-up finishes.
A former coach of the Thailand junior national team, as well as part of the coaching staff of the Thai women’s national team that has been dominating the SEA Games since 1995, the veteran bench tactician told Akari Sports that his goal is to mold future National Team players. He also shared how he takes pride in his specialty in developing rookie players. More than half of the Adamson Lady Falcons in the ongoing PVL Collegiate Conference are new bloods and are yet to get a taste of the UAAP’s brand of competition.
Known for his ‘happy, happy’ mantra, the Thai mentor reiterated that playing with a positive disposition will translate to better performance during games.
Fr. Aldrin Suan of the AdU Office for Athletics and Recreation bared that he is “more than excited to have coach Tai onboard”. The university’s top brass for sports believes that the seasoned coach will lead the Lady Falcons to new heights with his introduction of new techniques to the young team during the two-month training camp that he will conduct starting September 1.
Meanwhile, Mozzy Ravena, a Lady Tigress alumna and mother of former Akari endorser, Kiefer Ravena is also jumping to San Marcelino as team rebuilding consultant.
