The first match of the 2018/19 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff finals between ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle and ONICO Warszawa might get an unexpected twist.


 

ONICO announced that they have filed a complaint to the Plus Liga in regard to the two situations during Game 1 of the playoff finals against ZAKSA, played yesterday: changing the referee’s decision on the match ball for Warszawa club in the tie-break and not awarding the point to them in the fourth set. Subsequently, the result until the end of the match remained incorrect.

The key moment in the tie-break which ONICO refer to was when they had a 14-13. Their player Piotr Łukasik made a double contact with the ball while receiving the service from Mateusz Bieniek but the umpire did not notice the irregular play of the visiting player. Moments later, the Bulgarian Nikolay Penchev scored a point which caused his teammates and coaching staff to explode with joy for winning the match. On the other side, ZAKSA volleyball players began to protest against such a decision with fury. Łukasz Kaczmarek was most nervous in ZAKSA, hitting the referee’s post. For that, he was red carded. After some time, the first referee changed his decision, ruling it was a double contact of Łukasik. Also, Kaczmarek’s red card cost his team to lose a point so, after these two calls, the result was ultimately changed at 15-14 for ONICO and the match resumed.

ZAKSA were more focused after all this and emerged victoriously – 17-15 to take the lead in the final series.

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
