The only two teams that conceded no set in the opening round of the 2019/20 Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season, EMS Taubaté Funvic and Sesc RJ, have repeated the same output in Round 2.


EMS Taubaté Funvic wrote down their second straight-set win in as many games of the 2019/20 Superliga Masculina regular season. The team coached by Renan Dal Zotto downed Ponta Grossa Vôlei, who replaced Botafogo (withdrew from the competition) at the last minute, by a 3-0 (25-11, 25-16, 25-20) in front of own fans.

Ricardo Lucarelli was the top scorer of the match with 14 points and by making an impressive attack success rate of 82% (9/11). Ponta Grossa (formerly known as Caramuru) obviously didn’t have enough time to compose a squad knowing that they came to the match today with only eight players!

Sesc RJ swept Vôlei UM Itapetininga at home ground in Rio de Janeiro by a 3-0 with Wallace Souza scoring 11 points.

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
