SuperLega, young spiker Alessandro Bristot promoted to the first team

For more than fifteen years now, at every market session Trentino Volley has promoted at least one new product from its flourishing Youth Sector to the men's first team. This tradition will also be respected in the 2024/25 season: young spiker Alessandro Bristot, after having completed his career in the Trentino Youth Sector, and having played three Serie B championships wearing the UniTrento Volley jersey, will be a member of the Itas Trentino SuperLega roster from the start of next season.
For the nineteen-year-old hammer from Feltre, this promotion was earned on court. Last season, in addition to being a key member of the junior team, which came within a step of promotion to Serie A3 also thanks to his 371 points scored in 27 games, Alessandro already had the opportunity to demonstrate his great potential, often training under Fabio Soli. The coach also found a way to reward his commitment precisely in the last home match of the regular season (last 3 March against Padua), when he made his official debut in the top division, even scoring a point with a second-line attack.
A very precocious talent, so much so that he made his debut in Serie A3 in 2020 at only fifteen years of age wearing the UniTrento jersey, Bristot is a technical, explosive and complete player, qualities that he has also displayed in the National Youth Teams. He won two gold and three silver medals with them, gaining valuable experience at high levels.
“I arrived in Trento in 2019 to be part of the yellow-blue Youth Sector, precisely to pursue the dream that I realise today: to play in the SuperLega - explained Alessandro Bristot - . So, it is an understatement to say that I am overjoyed by the opportunity given me by the Club; in previous seasons I had the chance to train with the first team and in March I even managed to earn a little space on the court. The debut in an official game against Padua was a very strong emotion, which I want to relive starting in September, when I will be a full-fledged player on the roster. I will put on the field all the enthusiasm and determination that this opportunity will offer me. I have a lot of growing to do, but I can't wait to get to work on it”.
“I believe that for a Club like Trentino Volley, which has always directed its Youth Sector with far-sightedness and attention, it is a duty to promote promising players to the first team, and Bristot is certainly one of them - were the words of coach Fabio Soli - . Alessandro has important technical qualities and the SuperLega, after gaining experience with the National Youth Teams and in the Serie B championships, was his natural landing place. He will have to grow, but we will follow him carefully because, as he has already shown when he trained with us last season, he can be very useful to our cause”.
Bristot is the 26th player to join the Trentino Volley first team from the Youth Sector; he will wear the number 2 jersey.
