Imoco Volley Conegliano dominated Unet E-Work Busto Arsizio in the big match of the 2019/20 Italian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


In a duel of the leaders and vice-leaders of the 2019/20 Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile regular season, valid for Round 13, Imoco imposed supremacy over Busto. The world champions didn’t allow rivals to collect more than 15 points in any of the sets 3-0 (25-13, 25-12, 25-15). Because of being in such a subordinate position in the match, Busto failed to level with Imoco in the charts and their huge winning streak, that consisted of 8 games, has been interrupted. Paola Egonu was on a high-level as usual, scoring 18 points for the titleholders, while American Karsta Lowe was the closest to making double digits of all Busto players with 8 points. This round was the last round before the break from the club season due to the Olympic Qualifications. The Serie A will be continued on January 15.

Third-placed Igor Gorgonzola Novara and fourth-placed Savino Del Bene Scandicci recorded straight-set wins each, while Banca Valsabbina Millenium Brescia managed to end their quite long losing streak (6 defeats in a row).

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
