The International Olympic Committee (IOC) set up a task force to find the most optimal time of the year and formula for organizing the Tokyo Games in 2021.

 

A special coordination commission named “Here We Go“ is launched by the IOC to reorganize the Tokyo Olympic Games that are postponed to 2021. The idea of forming such a group was to find the best possible formula and time of the year to hold the event. The biggest challenges of the “Here We Go“ will be securing all the facilities, both venues and accommodation, ticketing, thousands of existing contracts and inevitable - additional costs that come with the rescheduling of the Olympics.

The President of the IOC, Thomas Bach, didn’t limit organizing the Games only to the summer of 2021.

“The agreement is that we want to organize these Games at the latest in summer 2021. This is not restricted just to the summer months. All the options are on the table including summer 2021,“ the German said to the website of the Tokyo Olympics.

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

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
