Itambé/Minas kept 100% output in the 2019/20 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


The champions Itambé/Minas recorded the fourth win in as many games in the 2019/20 Superliga Feminina regular season. The team from Belo Horizonte gained a two-set lead against Esporte Clube Pinheiros, allowed rivals to level, but carved out the victory in the tie-break: 3-2 (25-15, 25-17, 22-25, 22-25, 20-18). Caroline Gattaz “Carol Gattaz“ and Thaísa Menezes tallied 18 points apiece for Minas, both being on a high level in the block with 5 and 4 kill blocks, respectively. Saraelen Lima scored 23 points for Pinheiros.

After making her debut this season in Superliga three days ago, Tandara Caixeta was sidelined once again, this time due to tonsillitis. However, it didn’t disturb her teammates from Sesc RJ to sweep C.R. Flamengo and stay undefeated: 3-0 (25-21, 29-27, 25-14). Renata Colombo “Renatinha“ and Juciely Silva scored 17 points apiece, with the latter making as many as 8 kill blocks! Milka Marcília Silva was also amazing in this segment (6). With this win, Sesc skipped Dentil/Praia Clube (also unbeaten) in the charts and settled at the No.1.

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
