Team profile

Ranked 24th in the world, the women’s national team of the Czech Republic makes their World Grand Prix debut in 2013.

A regular participant in European competition, the Czech Republic qualified for the prestigious annual international event by winning the 2012 European League on home soil in Karlovy Vary.

Since the spring of 2012 the team has been working under the supervision of Italian coach Carlo Parisi with the aim of continuing the renaissance of Czech Republic women’s volleyball. The glory days of two FIVB Women’s World Championship bronze medals as Czechoslovakia in the 50s and 60s are a distant memory but following the qualification to the 2010 World Championships, there has been hope that a new generation of players will create a new important chapter in their country’s volleyball history.

Qualification to the World Grand Prix is a great start and under Parisi they will be hoping to at least match their recent World Championship performances - which have included a ninth, 17th and 15th-place results in 1994, 2002 and 2010 respectively - to continue the recent return to encourgaing results.

 
Coach profile

Carlo Parisi from Italy has been coaching the Czech Republic’s women’s team since February 21, 2012. Since this time he has taken the team to victory in the 2012 European League where they beat Bulgaria for the top spot in the competition.

Parisi also coaches Italian club Yamamay Busto Arsizio where he has been at the helm since 2004. In the 2011-12 season he guided the club to win the Italian Cup - their first success at the national level, which was followed by a second CEV Cup victory (the first in 2010) and then gold at the Italian Championship. In the 2012-13 season, the club won the Italian Super Cup and bronze in the 2013 European Champions League.

In seasons 1995/96, 2002/03 2006/07 and 2011/12, Carlos Parisi received the award for ‘Best Coach of Italian League’.
