In a packed La Bombonerita hall (3,000 spectators), the home side and also the top seed Boca Juniors defeated No.2 seed San Lorenzo in Game 3 of the 2018/19 Liga Femenina de Voleibol Argentino playoff finals to close the series at 2-1 and win the second straight championship. Boca prevailed in four sets in a decisive game, partially 23-25, 25-18, 25-19 and 25-18. Game 1 went into the favor of San Lorenzo (3-0) while Boca was better in Game 2 by a 3-1.

In this way, Boca won three of the five championship editions organized by the Argentine Volleyball Federation (2015, 2018 and 2019) and added their sixth title (2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2018 and 2019) to reaffirm the status of the most-titled Women’s club, having two gold medals more than Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata and River Plate.

This title match marked the end of the career of Boca captain and former Argentina national team middle blocker Natalia Espinosa, who retired at the age of 35. The opposite hitter Lucía Fresco from Boca was named MVP of the finals.

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
