The 2018/19 French Women’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinalists Volero Le Cannet (ex-Volero Zürich) parted ways with the head coach Avital Selinger.


Following the 2018/19 season that went below initial expectations and after careful consideration, as Volero Le Cannet posted on Instagram, the club that moved from Switzerland to France last year ended its collaboration with the head coach Selinger by mutual agreement.

Last season, the Israeli-born expert has been at the helm of former Volero Zürich for the third time in his coaching career (2014-2016, 2017, and 2018/19), winning the Swiss Championship and Cup three times each.

The French libero Déborah Ortschitt, Russian setter Anastasiya Kornienko, and Cuban opposite hitter Nancy Carrillo extended their contracts with the club.

Volero Le Cannet thanked these players for collaboration: outside hitters - Laura Unternährer (VC Kanti Schaffhausen, Switzerland) and Bulgarian Gergana Dimitrova (PTT, Turkey), opposite hitters - Serbian Ana Bjelica, Cuban Heidy Casanova (both Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax, Brazil) and another Cuban Rosir Calderón, middle blockers - Bulgarian Mira Todorova (Cannes) Russian Angelina Lazarenko (Dinamo Krasnodar, Russia) and French Marie-France Garreau Dje (Venelles, France), and Slovenian setter Eva Mori (ŁKS Commercecon Łódź, Poland).

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
