Dominique Baeyens took over the bench of Belgium Men’s Volleyball National Team.


After less than a year at the helm of Belgium Men, Brecht Van Kerckhove decided to quit the job. Dominique Baeyens will replace him and have a very difficult task to secure a berth for the national team at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics through the European Qualifier in January. Belgium will play in their pool against Slovenia (EuroVolley runners-up), Germany and the Czech Republic.

The 63-year-old expert has won eight national titles, three national cups and one European cup in his coaching career. Baeyens was elected Coach of the Year eight times. He is familiar with guiding Belgium Men’s National Team knowing that has already been its head coach from 2012 to 2016.

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

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
