They are the best, the only team to hold the podium and finals in all tournaments for 15 years because they train with more quality and intensity then any other part of the Globe... Brazil don't have big investments in Volleyball, don't invest in halls...

Unfortunately volleyball in Brazil just like any other sport besides soccer does not get a lot of money support from sponsors at all.

Their biggest sponsor Baco do Brasil, just announced they will keep investing in volleyball, but they will invest R$$ 10 millions LESS every year from on now...which will affect and youth programs from sure.

And they don`t get any invests from arenas at all, Just look the arenas in Brazil too see how poor and the bad shape they are. And the arenas are really small. Some of them don`t even have 1.000 people capacity. ( or even 500).

To keep the sport going in Brazil is a hard fight every day.

But Volleyball is the 2 most popular sport in Brazil and a lot of people wants to play volleyball and they are very passionate about it.

And this makes the Brazilian Superliga be on a really high level.

And Bernardo has said before nobody trains more and harder than like they do in Brazil....they do train a lot.

Brazil could be the one of the 5 best teams of the world, like Russia, USA, Italy. The athletes are so good in this countries.
But to be the best, the number one, it needed excellent coaches. The diference is not the players.
Brazil have, actually, the 3 best coaches of the world: Bernardo, Marcelo Mendes and Guimarães.

FIVB are testing new rules at WCH U23: Serve (VIDEO)

I honestly don't see the use of changing every time the rules. People at some point don't know anymore what the exact rules are, and at this time I'm talking about player, coaches, ... , people with much affection for the sport. People that don't know the sport, can't follow at all this evolution of rules. In consequence they lose interest in the sport and stop following it.

Also if this rule would apply, this will for many youth teams an issue to learn this kind of services, as they don't have the room behind the court as the professional player to learn this kind of service without landing in the court. I know courts where there's only 1 meter behind the service lines.

If we want the game to become more spectacular again, we should simply raise the hight of the net. People are becomming taller and taller and jumping higher and higher, the logical evolution would be to raise the net hight.

IT will impact the service presure and the attack presure, resulting in longer rally's.

Thanks just my personal opinion.

I wonder who has the same idea? Reply
