The Italian women’s volleyball team Saugella Team Monza closed 2019 with a “bang”.

 

In 2020, Monza will have a new player on their roster - an American outside hitter Kathryn Plummer, one of the biggest prospects of U.S. volleyball at the moment. The player who wore the jersey of the Stanford Cardinal, with whom she won the 2019 NCAA Championship, will arrive in the Serie A side on January 6.

The 21-year-old Plummer is the only player in the history of this sport in her country to win FIVB World Championship medals in both beach and indoor volleyball in the same year (indoor - silver at 2015 FIVB Girls’ U18 World Championship; beach - gold at 2015 FIVB Beach Girls’ U17 World Championship). She won this year’s Pan American Cup with the senior national team. Plummer was named Most Outstanding Player of the 2019 NCAA Championship and elected on the all-tournament 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
