The Germany National Team has entered the final of the 2020 European Women’s Volleyball Olympic Qualifier in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.


The German players ruined the mood of nearly 6,000 spectators at the Omnisport hall in Apeldoorn by beating the home side of the Netherlands in straight sets in the semifinal of the 2020 European Women’s Olympic Qualification Tournament. Thus, the team coached by Felix Koslowski will play for the place in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics against Poland or Turkey, whose semifinal duel sets off at 20:45 CET. The German ladies will have the chance to avenge the male colleagues for a defeat in the final to France, yesterday.

Louisa Lippmann was the top scorer for the winning side with 21 points. Nika Daalderop scored 15 for the “Oranje“.

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
