Titleholders Imoco Volley Conegliano maintained their unbeaten record in the 2019/20 Italian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


The champions Imoco Volley Conegliano prolonged their perfect record in the 2019/20 Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile regular season to four games and did it in a stylish manner. Not even Èpiù Pomì Casalmaggiore managed to snatch a set from the “Panthers“. When Imoco survived the opening set in which they committed as much as 9 errors, everything went easier for them afterward: 3-0 (25-21, 25-16, 25-18). Paola Egunu drove Imoco with 19 points. The captain Caterina Bosetti scored 11 points for Casalmaggiore.

The superb output of the Pole Malwina Smarzek (33 points, including 4 kill blocks) was in vain as Zanetti Bergamo fall to the team play of Savino Del Bene Scandicci. The visitors might not have had a player who stood out like Smarzek but had as many as 11 players who managed to score at least one point. They were led by Dutch Lonneke Slöetjes (14 points).

Unet E-Work Busto Arsizio proved stronger than Banca Valsabbina Millenium Brescia despite performing without both liberos (Leonardi fractured the little finger of the right hand this morning, Wang not available), while starting setter Orro did not have strength for the whole match: 3-1 (28-30, 25-21, 25-18, 25-16). Busto head coach Lavarini was forced to use outside hitter Gennari as libero and Cumino as starting setter. American Karsta Lowe highlighted for the winning side with 19 points. Camilla Mingardi scored 23 for Brescia.

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

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

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
