The Brazilian women’s volleyball side Itambé/Minas extended deals with several players.


The management of Minas has already arranged new deals with several players who stood out last season. The setter Macris Carneiro and the libero Léia Nicolosi have renewed contracts with the Belo Horizonte powerhouse. Minas negotiate on the same with the middle blocker Caroline Gattaz “Carol Gattaz” and the opposite hitter Sheilla Castro. It’s known from earlier that the middle blocker Thaísa Daher will wear the club jersey for one more season.

As for potential reinforcements, two players are close to agreeing to terms with Minas: the outside hitter Priscila Daroit “Pri Daroit” (Dentil/Praia Clube) and, also known from earlier, the Polish opposite hitter Malwina Smarzek (Zanetti Bergamo, Italy).

Through social networks, Venezuelan outside hitter Roslandy Acosta announced that she won’t continue her adventure in Belo Horizonte.

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
