The Greek Women’s Volleyball Championship debutants P.A.O.K. appointed a Slovakian head coach.

 

Despite earning the promotion to the Greek top division for the first time in the club history, P.A.O.K. officials decided to part ways with the head coach that brought this success to the Thessaloniki team, Dimitris Solkidis. He will not be replaced with a reputable Serbian expert Zoran Gajić, as it was speculated two months ago, but with Slovak Michal Mašek, who has just won the Polish league title with ŁKS Commercecon Łódź.

P.A.O.K. made a great job by renewing the deal with a 28-year-old outside hitter Evangelia “Eva“ Chantava, one-time Greek Championship MVP. The outside hitter Maria Klepkou and middle blocker Eleni Konstantinidou followed Chantava’s footsteps.

As for reinforcements, P.A.O.K. agreed to terms with a 26-year-old middle blocker Nikoletta Karafoulidou. Last season, she competed for AS Makedones. The libero Maria Myridou and middle blocker Ioanna Polynopoulou also signed with the Thessaloniki side. Both came from Division 2 teams - APS Admiral Votsi and Nea Genea Asvestochoriou, respectively.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
