At the end of the second season at the top of the Banca Valsabbina Millennium Brescia Born in Omegna and based in Verona for years, the coach has clear ideas about his future.
There is a common plan between Beltrami and Volley Millenium and a desire for further satisfaction. “The stats speak for themselves, I’ve never been head coach in the same place three years in a row. I’ve always been ambitious, maybe too much, I started my career very young and always tried to move up. I find a place where I feel really comfortable, where I can express myself and always find new impulses in what we do. I am particularly pleased with the growth – with the club, with myself and with the athletes – shown by the many girls who have entered or will enter the Serie A1 stage. It’s an important thing that makes me feel really good and makes me want to stay, play again next year and start over“.
“The past season still leaves me with the same emotions – even days later. It’s a very nice thing, I think it’s confirmation that it’s been a very important year given the intensity with which we’ve experienced it. We faced sporting and human difficulties, we had to try to line up the blocks again to keep the car on track. We made it to the final, which unfortunately we didn’t win, but the balance can only be positive. Given the conditions at the beginning of the championship and the difficult group we were in – the other group also turned out to be an excellent group – we can say that we are satisfied with the results. In sport it is often not enough to work well, even if you are ahead of the others you have to arrive on Sunday and Wednesday and do better than the others. We faced a lot of quality opponents, some of them very good, and it was a very formative experienceTo”.
“We had a very inexperienced team, often ‘young’ is used in a negative sense but that is not the case, who suffered from inexperience but enjoyed the utter exuberance and ‘healthy madness’ of trying believing they could Creating things that go beyond the routine – explains Beltrami –. These were skills that were within the talent range of this group, but for the less experienced, the difficulty is controlling one’s potential and anything outside of one’s comfort zone. Sometimes we succeeded, sometimes not. We have an absolutely positive year ahead of us, which has left many lessons for me. Dealing with young people teaches a lot, also about how the needs of the generations change.“
“In these two years we have always reached the final. We’re probably brave because at the beginning of the year we always promise to reach the goal, while most other clubs, even if they are strong teams, don’t announce their goals and just say: ‘We will try. ““”.
“In two years many formations tried to reach the top, some did better than us (Roma, Trento, Pinerolo, Macerata) but most of us managed to keep them at a distance. Here in Brescia we have big ambitions to rise to the top class, but also to structure ourselves, to work and to become more and more professional – and more professional – in what we do. the technician continues Piedmontese -. There is a synergy of intentions with Millennium. I am very happy with the two years that have trained me and that have given me the opportunity to make this summer’s journey with the national team.”.
“I keep all these experiences. The emotions of the most complicated victories, this year’s playoffs, the Italian Cup final last season. I always try to appreciate the defeats and wonder why they happened and what happened. I am developing a working methodology that starts from the main concepts of those years but which has been further developed since my stay in Brescia. Already in the past year we added some situations that were very effective. We will use these as a starting point to tailor our work to the needs and responses of the team.”
“I would stick with the method that led to two different teams getting the results they wanted. We will certainly pay a little more attention to some aspects that worked at the end of this year. Our goal is to generate even more awareness and, given the structuring of a more experienced team, even more feedback from players on the methodology and actual requirements of what the game is asking of us. Everything is saved, even defeats, because they serve to understand where we have been lacking. We need to start working from there.” closes coach Beltrami.
