Korea Expressway Corporation Hi-Pass entered the playoff finals in the Korean women’s volleyball league (Dodram 2018-2019 V League) for the second consecutive season.

 

The second seed Korea Expressway Corporation Hi-Pass bounced back from 0-2 against No.3 GS Caltex Seoul Kixx in a decisive Game 3 of the playoff semifinals in V League – 3-2 (19-25, 21-25, 25-16, 25-14, 15-11). The fact that all three games ended with a tie-break show how difficult this semifinal matchup was.

GS Caltex bravely held today knowing the fact that their best scorer Aliona Martiniuc was once again unable to play. The Moldovan opposite sustained a knee injury prior to Game 2. Prospect outside hitter Kang So-Hwi took the role of the leader for GS Caltex, scoring 27 points. Senegalese Fatou Diouck highlighted for Expressway with 26 points, waving her ex-club on departure from the playoffs.

In the finals, Expressway will face top seed Hungkuk Life Pink Spiders. The last time these two met for the championship title was 13 years ago. The series will start on March 21.

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
