After turning around the match against Fluminense F.C. at home, Sesc RJ reached the second victory in the 2019/20 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Sesc recovered from losing the first set against Fluminense to record their second win in as many games in the 2019/20 Superliga Feminina regular season: 3-1 (21-25, 25-23, 25-18, 25-19). The head coach of the Rio de Janeiro team Bernardo Rezende once again couldn't count on the starting opposite hitter Tandara Caixeta, who is recovering from abdominal pain. So, just like in the first round, Bernardinho put backup Renata Colombo “Renatinha“ in the line-up. She justified the trust of her coach and top-scored for Sesc with 17 points. Milka Marcília made 6 kill blocks, while Dominican Yonkaira Peña Isabel had a 79% attack (11/14). As for Fluminense, Thais Souza “Thaisinha“ tallied 17 points.

The vice-champions Dentil/Praia Clube easily outplayed São Cristóvão Saúde/São Caetano in their first home match in the competition this season: 3-0 (25-14, 25-13, 25-13). The team from Uberlândia was led by Fernanda Garay “Fê Garay“ who chipped in with 16 points, of which 7 came from the service!

Knowing that Superliga is considered one of the strongest club tournaments in the world, when any of the teams finish a set with single digits on its account, it's truly surprising. The titleholders Itambé/Minas let Valinhos take only 8 points in the first set in a 3-1 win!

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
