The 2018/19 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship runners-up Dentil/Praia Clube announced the return of three players to the club.

 

The current vice-champions of Superliga made the hiring of three former players official via their social media channels.

The veteran middle blocker Walewska Oliveira, the 2008 Beijing Olympics winner with Brazil national team, returns to the Uberlândia team after a season in Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax. A 39-year-old player was involved in winning the first-ever and, so far, the last championship title of Praia – in the 2017/18.

The middle blocker Angélica Malinverno, 10 years younger than Walewska, is the next returnee to Praia. She came from BRB/Brasília Vôlei.

The third returnee in Praia is a 31-year-old setter Cláudia Silva “Claudinha”, competing for Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax last season.

A few days earlier, Praia announced three more signings: the opposite hitter Monique Pavão (SESC RJ), outside hitter Priscila Daroit “Pri Daroit” (Fluminense F.C.), and young setter Vivian Lima (Fluminense F.C.).

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

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

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

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
