U.S. Women’s volleyball star Destinee Hooker has finished her Brazilian adventure.

 

A 29-year-old opposite announced on social networks that she is leaving Camponesa/Minas after six months.

„Thank you Brazil for everything. Sadly I will not be returning next season. This year has been full of memories and I am thankful I was able to share them with Minas. I will never forget you all. I do not know where I will be playing next season! I want to say best of luck to all the girls who renewed with Minas for next season: Rosamaria, Karol, Léia, Pri and Mara. Also best of luck to Paulo Coco who will be coaching Praia next season. God bless and keep fighting Minas. You will always be in my heart,“ Hooker wrote on Instagram.

A two-time FIVB World Grand Prix winner with the US National Team averaged 44% in attack this season before her team lost Superliga playoff semifinals to Rexona-Sesc by 3-2.

Hooker also confirmed what Minas published earlier, that a quintet of players will stay in club for 2017/2018: Rosamaria Montibeller, Karoline ’Karol’ Tórmena, Léia Nicolosi, Priscila ’Pri’ Dariot and Mara Leão. Also, she revealed that coach Paulo Rego 'Coco' will definitely move to Dentil/Praia Clube, which was only an unofficial info so far.

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
