WWK Volleys Herrsching achieved a historical win in Round 9 of the 2019/20 German Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


WWK Volleys Herrsching wrote down an important piece of the club history on Saturday. The team coached by Max Hauser beat the record 1. Bundesliga Männer champions VfB Friedrichshafen (13 titles) by a 3-2 (18-25, 25-23, 22-25, 25-16, 15- 8). It was their first win over this rival since the team stepped into the top division in 2014. American opposite hitter Jalen Penrose was the most deserving player for a success with 21 points. North Macedonian Nikola Gjorgiev tallied 31 points (5 aces) for Friedrichshafen, who suffered their first defeat in the season after eight wins.

Led by the U.S. National Team member Benjamin Patch (18 points), Berlin Recycling Volleys swept Volleyball Bisons Bühl to remain the only unbeaten side (10-0).

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

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
