Dentil/Praia Clube won the big derby of the 2019/20 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season against Sesc RJ.


Praia beat Sesc by 3-1 (31-33, 25-17, 25-16, 31-29) in Round 18 of the 2019/20 Superliga Feminina regular season to remain at the top of the charts, having 50 points and only one defeat, which they suffered exactly against the Rio de Janeiro team. So, this win can be considered revenge for the vice-champions. On the other hand, Sesc fell to third place, collecting 45 points (16-2).

Dominican Brayelin Martínez from Praia dominated the match with 34 points on 57 kills (!) of which she scored 12 in the opening set that went deep in the overtime. The fourth set also went into overtime and lasted for as many as 40 minutes. Ana Carolina Silva “Carol” made 8 kill blocks for the winning side. Sesc once again played without Tandara Caixeta. Amanda Francisco was their top scorer with 17 points.

Praia extended the winning streak to 11 games, while the one of Sesc came to an end after 8 games.

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
