Current champions of the South Korean Men’s Volleyball Championship, Cheonan Hyundai Capital Skywalkers, changed a foreign player after nine games in the new season.

 

The V-League champions Skywalkers will no longer count on Cuban outside hitter Yosvany Hernández. He injured his ankle one week upon the start of the 2019/20 season and did not return to the court afterward. The team from Cheonan did not play well without him, suffering four defeats in nine games.

The Skywalkers’ management decided to react and hired Ugandan sensation Daudi Okello, who has been standing out in the Turkish league since the beginning of the season, leading Spor Toto to the surprising No.1 in the charts of the 2019/20 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season. The 24-year-old opposite hitter is the top-scorer in points per set (6.29) and third-best scorer overall (107 points).

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
