Good news for the fans of the France Men’s Volleyball National Team!

 

According to L’Équipe, Laurent Tillie will lead the France National Team in the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games. As it was known from earlier, after eight years at the helm of the “Les Bleus“, the expert had decided to leave the post at the end of the Olympics to join the Japanese club Panasonic Panthers. At the time, the event was to be held in the summer this year. However, the postponement of the Games has changed the situation for Tillie although there was a chance that he commanded France Men for the last time in the European Olympic Qualifier in January without knowing it.

“The idea was that I go to the Tokyo Olympics. With this postponement which is relatively short in time, I reached an agreement with the Japanese club to be able to go the Games and made the one with the French federation, too. It’s not official yet, we have to get into details but they agree. It’s progressing well,“ Tillie stated for L’Équipe.

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
