Team profile

Since Norimasa Sakakuchi began as coach in 2006 continued efforts have been made to help improve the Chinese Taipei women’s team.

A selection policy which mainly focuses on young players has meant that the team has been able to gain experience quickly, building for the future.

To date the team has successfully entered the FIVB Women’s Championship in 1990 and 2006 with an 11th and 12th place finish, outstanding achievements in the context of premier women’s volleyball.

Their World Grand Prix results have left a lot more to be desired. Three editions have only returned three 12th place finishes with only one win to their name in ther last match in 2010 against Puerto Rico.

Following their right-to-the-wire qualification to the 2012 edition by having beaten Algeria on points ratio, Chinese Taipei now have another chance to improve their World Grand Prix record.




Coach profile

Norimasa Sakakuchi was born in Japan in 1946. After coaching at university level in Japan, Sakakuchi started his coaching assignment with Chinese Taipei in 2006, starting with the junior women’s team. He went on to coach the youth girls’ team in 2007 before leading the junior women to second at the Asian Junior Women’s Volleyball Championship in 2008. In 2009, Chinese Taipei ranked fifth at the FIVB Junior Women’s World Championship before Norimasa moved on to coach the senior women’s side, where he is trying to develop a team who can compete at the highest level.
