At the XI men's Pan American Cup opening match USA defeated Chile in four sets 25-17, 17-25, 25-15, 25-22!

 

We haven’t played together for very long so I was happy the way we came back, we had difficulties in set two, which we weren’t very happy about. We tried to get everybody out there as much as possible. Chile is very good team, but in this tournament we really don’t know a lot of players and you have to come out and respect everybody,” says captain of USA Carson Clark.

The top scorer on the winning side was Torey Defalco with 15 points, while on the other side there was only one player with double digits – Vicente Parraguirre (16 points).

Canada have downed Costa Rica in Pool B, while in Pool C the host Mexico and Argentina scored victories as well.

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

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

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
