For the first time since the season has started, a week ago, all matches of some round in the 2019/20 Japanese Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season took place.


While Japan is still fighting with the consequences of a devastating Typhoon Hagibis, which took away 74 lives and left thousands of people stranded, volleyball returned to indoor facilities across the country. Round 3 of the 2019/20 V.League Division 1 regular season was on the schedule and was the first round in which all six matches this season were played.

Titleholder Hisamitsu Springs is one of the teams whose matches were postponed due to Typhoon Hagibis. They beat Hitachi Rivale by a 3-0 (25-21, 25-23, 25-22) to record a first win in the league, more precisely in the Premier Conference. The V.League’s superstar Fabiana Claudino made a striking debut for Hisamitsu. Brazilian middle blocker scored game-high 15 points, including 4 kill blocks.

The Star Conference leaders Toyota Auto Body Queenseis are invincible even after three games. They beat Kurobe Aqua Fairies in four sets on the road, partially 25-22, 25-22, 20-25, 25-14. Turkish international Neriman Özsoy kept shining as she poured in 26 points for the winnings side. Erika Araki made 5 kill blocks. American Simone Lee was a bright spot in the Aqua Fairies with 27 points.

After finishing her participation at the NORCECA Continental Championship, American opposite hitter Andrea Drews joined JT Marvelous and debuted with style. She put down 32 points in the 3-2 win of her team against Saitama Ageo Medics.

Sport Bond in Italian Volleyball (Part 1)

This is very similar to 'foundation rights' for football clubs around the world, well except for the US. In football, Jimmy plays for Club X from age 14 to 17. Then he jumps to SuperClub Y for free. Two years at Super Club Y, Giant Massive Club AA comes in and buys his contract from Super Club Y for $10,000,000!

Super Club Y would have to give a portion of the fee to Club X because of Foundation Rights. These rights stay with the player till age 23 (if I remember correctly from my days working in football).

Volleyball has enough issues with budgets and players making money, that there should be hinderance to player movement after age 18 or maybe 21. Just pay the club $10k per season trained or something like that. (Note- this is top of my head thinking and I am not privy to budgets for players).
