Sesc RJ are the winners of the 2019/20 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Cup.


Sesc RJ beat national vice-champions Dentil/Praia Clube, which were aiming to win their first-ever trophy in the competition, in the final of the 2020 Copa Brasil feminina de vôlei in Jaraguá do Sul (a repeat of 2016 final) by a 3-1 (18-25, 25-21, 25-23, 25-23). Thus, the Rio de Janeiro team won the 4th trophy in the national Cup, becoming the most-titled side in the competition that was abandoned from 2008 to 2014.

The ladies coached by Bernardinho have qualified to play the next edition of the Super Cup against the Superliga champions. One-time Olympic winner Tandara Caixeta marked an encounter in front of the packed stands at the Jaraguá Arena (9,000 spectators) by a great performance. An experienced opposite hitter scored 40 points, setting the new record for points in a single match in any competition organized by the Brazilian Volleyball Confederation (CBV)!

Sesc showed to be a pretty high obstacle for Praia this season as they already beat them in the Superliga. Both teams continue the fight for the national championship, being tied at the top of the charts at 38 points.

Recall how the men's final went.

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
