Sir Safety Conad Perugia are impossible to beat even after nearly 3 months!


Kioene Padova returned home empty-handed from the trip to Perugia, who had difficulties to beat them in Round 18 of the 2019/20 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season. However, the team coached by Vital Heynen, vice-leaders of SuperLega, managed to record the 17th success in a row, counting all national and international competition (undefeated since November 10): 3-1 (25-23, 19-25, 25-20, 25-21)! Cuban-Polish Wilfredo León was the top scorer for Perugia (19 points), but Serbian Marko Podraščanin was the one that highlighted his team as he made a 100% attack (11/11). Japanese Yuki Ishikawa and Cuban Fernando Hernández tallied 16 points apiece for Ravenna.

Cucine Lube Civitanova remained leaders after wrecking Calzedonia Verona in straight sets, conceding only 8 points in the first set!

Third-placed Leo Shoes Modena struggled to prevail over Top Volley Cisterna, while Itas Trentino strengthened themselves at No.4. Both Modena and Trentino wrote down 4th successive triumph in the competition.

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
