On March 22nd 2020., on early Sunday morning, the city of Zagreb was struck by an earthquake, leaving many citizens in fear and with large material damages.


Due to the COVID 19 coronavirus outbreak and the earthquake hitting so early in the morning, streets in Zagreb were luckily empty, leaving this unfortunate event with a few wounded citizens and one casualty, as a 15-year old girl suffered fatal injuries in the earthquake.

The building that was a home of the Croatian Volleyball Federation was badly damaged in the aftermath of the earthquake, leaving their employees “homeless”.

Considering the safety of their employees, the office of the Croatian Volleyball Federation is officially closed, while their leadership is in search of the new headquarters.

Nevertheless, all the Croatian volleyball family continued their work from home, ensuring full support via telephone or e-mail.

Stay home and stay safe!

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
