Sada Cruzeiro recorded a hard-fought win against Vôlei UM Itapetininga in Round 3 of the 2019/20 Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Cruzeiro were down 0-1 in sets against the underdogs Itapetininga but kept 100% output (3-0) in the 2019/20 Superliga Masculina regular season: 3-2 (19-25, 25-20, 25-19, 16-25, 15-13). Mostly thanks to Gabriel Cândido, who poured in 29 points, the home side provided tough resistance to Cruzeiro for which Argentinean Facundo Conte tallied 15 points.

Current champions EMS Taubaté Funvic, as well as Sesc RJ, confirmed their roles of the favorites in Round 3 and beat Pacaembu Ribeirão Preto and Denk Academy Maringá Vôlei, respectively, in straight sets. Taubaté remained in the first place in the charts with 3-0 and 9 points, not losing a single set so far. Sesc have exactly the same record and number of points collected, and also haven’t dropped a single set, but have slightly worst ration between the scored and conceded 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
