JPN W: Ferhat Akbas leaves coaching staff of women’s Japanese national team

2331 1

The Turkish-born coach Ferhat Akbas has decided to step down from the assistant coach position of the women’s Japanese national team.

 

Because of the very busy calendar of FIVB National Team Season and  CEV Club Volleyball season, I had to make a very hard decision. The choice was between “working both for a Club Team and a national team at the same time” or “staying always in Japan till the end of Olympic Games” which means staying Japan for 16 months. Even if I gave my %100 effort for the success of Team Japan last 2 years;  for my future, for my professional career, for my life, I couldn’t choose to stay in Japan only for #TeamJapan and #Olympicgames.  After having very good results and times last 2 years, I would like to say goodbye to all Japanese volleyball fans, players, the Japan Volleyball Association, all my friends in Japan. I will never forget the great memories. It was an honor for me to carry the Japanese flag on my chest. One day, I will be back! Hope to see you all,“ says Akbas.

Akbas is currently coaching Romania’s champions C.S.M. BUCURESTI who are making this season their maiden appearance in the elite CEV Volleyball Champions League.

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
