The five-time FIVB Men’s Volleyball Club World Championship winners, Itas Trentino, strengthened their outside hitter’s position with Italy-Dutch player Dick Kooy.

 

The new 2020 summer transfer market deal of Trentino, who’ll wear their jersey for the next two seasons, is the Dutch-born player Kooy.

The 32-year-old outside hitter arrived in Trentino after an excellent season with Gas Sales Piacenza. Since returning to the SuperLega courts in 2019, after six years, Kooy has gained the right to compete for the Italy National Team and made a debut in the 2019 FIVB World Cup, successfully replaced the Dutch sports nationality with the new one.

While defending the colors of Piacenza, a former member of the National Team of The Netherlands appeared in the top 10 on the lists of the best scorers and the best servers of the 2019/20 SuperLega regular season.

Kooy is good but not inthe same caliber as Russell, Trentino is definitely a weaker team for the up coming season.

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!!

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
