Dentil/Praia Clube beat titleholders Itambé/Minas in a tie-break of the Minas Gerais classic valid for the last round of the first half of the 2019/20 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.

 

The vice-champions Praia prevailed over champions Minas at home in the Clássico Mineiro (derby of the State of Minas Gerais) that closed the first half of the 2019/20 Superliga Feminina regular season: 3-2 (25-21, 16-25, 22-25, 25-19, 15-9) in 2 hours and 22 minutes. With the victory, Praia tied with Sesc RJ on the top of the charts at 29 points (10-1), but have a lower set ratio. Minas, who were unbeaten for 9 games since the beginning of the season, have suffered 2nd successive defeat to remain 3rd placed with 27 points.

Due to a lot of arguing with referees in the 3rd set, both head coaches (Paulo Coco from Praia and Italian Nicola Negro from Minas), got red cards. American Nicole Fawcett top-scored for Praia with 20 points, while Ana Carolina Silva “Carol” was outstanding in blocking rivals (8 kill blocks). Venezuelan Roslandy Acosta tallied 19points for Minas, while Thaísa Menezes made 5 kill blocks.

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

All this because volleyball is not e real professional sport and many clubs are managed with people with (almost) zero experience and knowledge in volleyball. And they manage money from state companies or government directly. Do not expect that that people will think differently. That is why volleyball will never move to another level and will always have some small “make up” in the future Reply

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

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
