German men’s volleyball side United Volleys Frankfurt brought back a big name to the country’s top division - Jochen Schöps!

 

The long-time captain of the Germany National Team will play for United Volleys in the continuation of the season. The 36-year-old opposite hitter initially signed a contract until the end of the 2019/20, but the Bundesliga club has long-term plans with him. Schöps spent the first half of the ongoing season in Qatari SC Police.

He has won numerous titles in his club career so far: the 2007 CEV winner Champions League (awarded MVP), German Championship 3 times, German Cup 4 times, and Polish Championship 2 times (awarded MVP once). With the national team, for which he collected 318 caps and said goodbye in 2018, Schöps took the 2009 CEV European League and the 2015 CEV European Games. Schöps was recognized Volleyball Player of the Year in Germany 3 years in a row (2007 – 2009).

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
