In my elementary days. I always dreamed of flying off to Scandinavia where the Gothia and Helsinki cups were held. My fellow players from Colegio San Agustin, De La Salle Zobel, and Ateneo always finished respectively. Even winning those tournaments a couple of times. Problem was, there was no support from the government whatsoever. Their parents shelled out for the trips. Lots of talented players could not make it because they couldn't afford the trip. Those times that they won (forgot which years; the trophies are still in the CSA PhysEd Department) were the only times the government paid them any mind.
Seldom do players actually pursue the sport after college as there aren't any pro leagues to go to unlike other sports. The semi-pro league organized in the mid-90's drowned out due to poor crowd attendance mainly due to lack of promotion and so so sponsorship.
Hope the planned semi-pro league will not falter out this time.
