Several days after the Women’s tryout, the Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) has organized a tryout for the male players for the 2019/20 V League season.

 

Just like the Women’s tryout, the Men’s will also be held at the Goldring Centre for High Performance in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and will last from May 7-10.

By looking at the list of participants, it is noticeable that there are several returnees to Korean volleyball. Three names stand out the most in the list – Canadian Gavin Schmitt (Olympiacos S.F.P, Greece), Cuban Michael Sánchez Bozhulev (Vôlei UM Itapetininga, Brazil) and Belgian Bram van den Dries (Rennes, France), ranked exactly in that order.

Schmitt left an indelible mark on the V League while playing in Daejeon Samsung Fire Bluefangs from 2009 to 2012. He scored a total of 3,061 points during that time, winning the championship title in all of these three seasons.

Sánchez Bozhulev also spent three seasons in the V League, from 2013 to 2016 defending the colors of Incheon Korean Air Jumbos, finishing his debut season as Best Server.

As for Van den Dries, he played one season in the Korean top division, the 2017/18, being a member of Ansan OK Savings Bank Rush&Cash.

KOVO informed that only 19 of 30 players who applied for the tryout will actually take part in it. Some players have canceled their participation while some were prevented to arrive for reasons such as national team schedule, injury, personal reasons, and visa issues.

Recall which female players were drafted and signed contracts with V League clubs for the upcoming season after completing a tryout.

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... Reply

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply

Re: @Piker
Yeah, you are right, my bad. They are indeed out already, won matches matter. I don't see Roeselare losing to Vojvodina. Reply
