The 2018/19 French Women’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinalists Volero Le Cannet (ex-Volero Zürich) parted ways with the head coach Avital Selinger.


Following the 2018/19 season that went below initial expectations and after careful consideration, as Volero Le Cannet posted on Instagram, the club that moved from Switzerland to France last year ended its collaboration with the head coach Selinger by mutual agreement.

Last season, the Israeli-born expert has been at the helm of former Volero Zürich for the third time in his coaching career (2014-2016, 2017, and 2018/19), winning the Swiss Championship and Cup three times each.

The French libero Déborah Ortschitt, Russian setter Anastasiya Kornienko, and Cuban opposite hitter Nancy Carrillo extended their contracts with the club.

Volero Le Cannet thanked these players for collaboration: outside hitters - Laura Unternährer (VC Kanti Schaffhausen, Switzerland) and Bulgarian Gergana Dimitrova (PTT, Turkey), opposite hitters - Serbian Ana Bjelica, Cuban Heidy Casanova (both Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax, Brazil) and another Cuban Rosir Calderón, middle blockers - Bulgarian Mira Todorova (Cannes) Russian Angelina Lazarenko (Dinamo Krasnodar, Russia) and French Marie-France Garreau Dje (Venelles, France), and Slovenian setter Eva Mori (ŁKS Commercecon Łódź, Poland).

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
