The runners-up of the Russian women’s volleyball championship, Lokomotiv, started to compose the roster for the next season.

 

Lokomotiv, who wittingly lost the top spot in the 2019/20 Superliga Parimatch regular season, which turned out to cost them the title as the competition ended due to coronavirus pandemic (regular-season winners Dinamo-Kazan won the title), made two contract renewals. Back-up outside hitters, both Russia National Team members, will stay in the Kaliningrad team one more season: Tatyana Yurinskaya and Irina Voronkova.

Last season, they were overshadowed by Margarita Kurilo and Tatyana Kosheleva. Lokomotiv fans are certainly eager to hear if the latter will keep wearing the jersey of their club in 2020/21 but it’s yet unknown.

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
