Sesc RJ extended their winning streak in the 2019/20 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season to 6 games.

 

In the first match after winning the Brazilian Cup, Sesc RJ played C.R. Flamengo at home in Round 15 of the 2019/20 Superliga Feminina regular season, carrying the role of the heavy favorites. However, the team coached by Bernardinho had to sweat to get the victory: 3-2 (23-25, 25-18, 22-25, 25-18, 15-8). In a difficult game between the 2 sides from Rio de Janeiro, Flamengo were twice ahead of the rivals in sets but succumbed in the tie-break. Tandara Caixeta continued to impress. After becoming a part of the country’s volleyball history in the Cup final, a one-time Olympic champion poured in 26 points against Flamengo, while Juciely Silva made as many as 8 kill blocks. Natália Araújo “Natinha” made 79% reception (19 digs, 32% excellent). Maria Luísa Oliveira “Malú” scored 21 points for the losing side.

Conceding 2 sets gave only 2 points to Sesc, who reached 40. But since Dentil/Praia Clube earned all 3 points by beating Curitiba Vôlei with a 3-0 (8th win in a row), they took over the lead of the Superliga, reaching 41 points. For Flamengo, the point obtained against Sesc didn’t make much of a difference: they are still ranked 11th (penultimate position) and in danger of being relegated.

Another huge winning streak has been extended in this round: the 4th placed Osasco/Audax recorded 6th success in a row by beating Fluminense F.C. in 4 sets.

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
