Rezende criticizes – “We play too much”; Volleyball players support him

2660 1

Bruno Rezende is the first volleyball player that raised his voice against the current volleyball calendar, both at the clubs’ and national teams’ level.

 

He has written a long post on Instagram.

We played the last game in this year on Sunday. I thank god for giving me health to do what I love. But I can not forget to make constructive criticism of the organizations that control the world of volleyball. It was an extremely stressful year, with countless trips, games and championships. From the clubs’ level and international as well. Special dates, like Christmas, we spent traveling and practicing. The number of injuries has increased and that’s not the best situation for everyone. The FIVB, CEV, LegaVolley, CBV and others need to understand that we are human and we need a calendar that also takes into consideration the health of the athletes. It’s not just about business and money. The athletes are creating the show. We, athletes, can get together to change a bit of this system.”

He got support from many volleyball players in the comments such as Ivan Zaytsev, Simone Giannelli, Nalbert, Helena Havelkova, Adenizia, Caterina Bosetti, Joanna Wolosz…

Bruno is right, FIVB and CEV are only interested in making money and completely have no regards for players and their health.

This year VNL was brutal, almost every weekend national teams have to travel across the world to play on another tournament. When VNL was over, a month later there was the World Championship.

Remember the final of 2016 World League in Brasil played on outside courts, the temperature was barely above 0 C.

Players who play for best clubs have a national league, national cup, and international competition so they have 2,3 games per week.

The calendar is inhumane and teams are forced to calculate and intentionally don't play with the best players on all competitions in order to save them for important ones.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

All this because volleyball is not e real professional sport and many clubs are managed with people with (almost) zero experience and knowledge in volleyball. And they manage money from state companies or government directly. Do not expect that that people will think differently. That is why volleyball will never move to another level and will always have some small “make up” in the future Reply

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
