The Italian Women’s Volleyball League suspended five out of six matches scheduled for today, February 23, due to the danger of spreading of coronavirus.


All volleyball activities for today are suspended by the Italian Women’s League to stop the spread of coronavirus in the country. The coronavirus outbreak in Italy is the biggest outside of Asia, causing the death of three people, while more than 150 are infected.

This decision was recommended by the Minister for Youth and Sport. The Italian League imposed its suspension to the matches of the 2019/20 Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile regular season in the regions of Lombardy, Veneto, and Piedmont in which five matches of Round 20 were to be held today.

The only encounter that took place was between Il Bisonte Firenze and Savino Del Bene Scandicci, in the region of Tuscany. The latter prevailed by a 3-1 and took over third place in the charts from Igor Gorgonzola Novara.

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
