In Game 1 of the 2018/19 Korean women’s volleyball league (Dodram 2018-2019 V League) playoff finals, the top seed Hungkuk Life Pink Spiders defeated No.2 Korea Expressway Corporation Hi-Pass, at home in Incheon, by a 3-1 (25-13, 10-25, 25-18, 26-24).


The Pink Spiders went ahead in the best-of-five playoff finals against Expressway and now have 50% chance of dethroning their rivals in the V League. This claim comes from a statistical data - in 14 playoffs that have been played so far in the Korean women’s league, a team that took the opening win has won the trophy seven times. Furthermore, from the 2010/11 season, seven out of eight teams that won the first leg have lifted the trophy.

The Pink Spiders were led today by the native player Lee Jae-Yeong who scored 23 points of which nine in the fourth set. Senegalese Fatou Diouck top-scored for Expressway with 33 points but her display was far from convincing - 50.8% excellent attack.

Game 2 is scheduled for March 23.

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
