The Chinese women’s volleyball champions Tianjin will likely have two foreigners next season instead of one as it was in the 2019/20.


According to CCTV, the reigning Super League champions Tianjin negotiate with one of the most prominent opposite hitters in the world volleyball today, Lonneke Slöetjes! As it was known from earlier, the Dutch player parted ways with Italy’s Savino Del Bene Scandicci, which Tianjin are about to take advantage of. A two-time CEV European Championship Best Opposite Spiker will replace American Destinee Hooker.

However, unlike the last season when they had only Hooker as a foreigner in the roster, Tianjin plan to have two imports in 2020/21. The Czech outside hitter Andrea Kossanyiová (BKS Stal Bielsko-Biała, Poland) will join Slöetjes. Does the arrival of Kossanyiová mean that rumors of Zhu Ting’s departure are true, the time will show.

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
