Turkish men’s volleyball powerhouse Halkbank reinforced its squad with the Slovenian opposite hitter Tonček Štern, trying to fix the bad first half of the season in which they are only 7th in the national championship and last-placed in their respective CEV Champions League pool.

 

The 24-year-old Tonček Štern has found the new club to play in for the rest of the season after parting ways with BKS Visła Bydgoszcz, Poland.

The opposite hitter wore the jersey of the Slovenia National Team in 85 matches, taking the silver medal in the last CEV European Championship. He was also part of the national team in winning the 2019 FIVB Challenger Cup. On a club level, Tonček Štern won the Slovenian Cup one time. Tonček comes from a volleyball family as his older sibling Žiga is also a professional player and furthermore, a member of the country’s national team.

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
