One of the biggest derbies of the Turkish volleyball has closed Round 4 of the 2019/20 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season.


The players Ziraat Bankası threw the last ounce of strength into the fight against the home side Halkbank and turned the Ankara derby into their favor after being two sets down: 3-2 (21-25, 18-25, 25-23, 25-23, 15-6). Thus, Ziraat remained one of the three unbeaten sides in the league (4-0). On the other hand, nine-time Turkish champions Halkbank (three-time straight champions prior to the last season) continued their rather poor campaign (1-3).

Cuban Yadrian Escobar top-scored for Ziraat with 31 points, while Muhammed Ertuğrul made 5 kill blocks. Gökhan Gökgöz tallied 21 points for Halkbank.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

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
