Imoco Volley Conegliano became the women’s volleyball club world champions for the first time in history!

 

Imoco Volley Conegliano defeated Turkish side Eczacıbaşı VitrA Istanbul in the final of the 2019 FIVB Club World Championship in Shaoxing, China, to win the first-ever world title! Italy waited for 27 years for some team to repeat the success of Teodora Ravenna (currently compete under the name Conad Olimpia Teodora Ravenna in the second division) who beat Itambé Minas in the final in Jesi in 1992.

The team coached by Daniele Santarelli finished the competition with a perfect record (5-5) and with a victory in their first-ever final: 3-1 (22-25, 25-14, 25-19, 25-21). Imoco were driven to claiming already the second trophy of the season, after having raised the national Super Cup, by gigantic Paola Egonu. She scored game-high 33 points, while Serbian Tijana Bošković tallied 24 for Eczacıbaşı.

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
