The Turkish Women’s Volleyball Championship winners VakıfBank signed two players from their big rivals Eczacıbaşı VitrA.

 

First, they beat them in the 2018/19 Turkish Championship playoff finals, now they engaged two of their players: VakıfBank signed Meliha İsmailoğlu and Gözde Yılmaz from Eczacıbaşı.

Bosnian-born Meliha İsmailoğlu, a two-time Player of the Year in her home country, performs as an outside hitter, competing for Turkey national team since 2014 with whom she won the CEV European League and European Games one time each. A 25-year-old player is also a one-time Turkish Championship and a two-time Turkish Cup winner.

A 27-year-old Gözde Yılmaz came to VakıfBank after previously winning the FIVB Club World Championship, CEV Champions League, CEV Cup, and Turkish Championship once each, Turkish Cup four times and CEV European League with Turkey national team one time.

Recall which four major players left VakıfBank recently.

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

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

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
