São Paulo FC/Barueri made an upset in Round 16 of the 2019/20 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


São Paulo FC/Barueri beat 4th placed Osasco/Audax in Round 16 of the 2019/20 Superliga Feminina regular season to move up from the 8th to the 6th position in the charts. By beating São Paulo state rivals in straight sets, partially 25-14, 26-16, and 25-22, Barueri ended Osasco’s 6-game winning streak. The win of Barueri can be considered a huge surprise knowing that their head coach Zé Roberto couldn’t lead them due to a 3-game disqualification, which he received by the Brazilian Volleyball Confederation (CBV) for pulling out his team from the court in the national Cup. Even his assistant wasn’t on the bench as he got a one-game suspension for being involved in the same incident. Tainara Santos top-scored for Barueri with 19 points, while Maira Cipriano Claro made 77% reception (22 digs, 59% excellent).

For the 2nd round in a row, the vice-leaders Sesc RJ barely got out alive. After winning the tie-break against C.R. Flamengo, the Rio de Janeiro side recorded one more win in the same manner, this time against Sesi Vôlei Bauru, and extended their victorious run to 7 games.

The leaders Dentil/Praia Clube wrote down the 9th success in a row, while 3rd placed Itambé/Minas prolonged their winning streak to 5 games. The 10th placed Curitiba Vôlei suffered their 7th defeat in a row.

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
