ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle won Game 2 of the Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff finals against ONICO Warszawa in straight sets, on the road, to take a 2-0 lead in the series.

 

The top seed ZAKSA came to a win from clinching the championship title as they defeated the No.2 seed ONICO by a 3-0 (25-22, 26-24, 25-22) in Game 2 of the best-of-five Plus Liga 2018/2019 playoff finals. Thus, ZAKSA took a 2-0 lead in the series.

Unlike Game 1 that ended in the tie-break and after several controversial decisions of the first referee to which ONICO filed a complaint, Game 2 was deprived of uncertainty. Zaksa head coach Andrea Gardini changed the lineup of his team a bit compared the first match, putting Rafał Szymura instead of Aleksander Śliwka on the outside hitter’s position which turned to be a very good decision.

Łukasz Kaczmarek, who avoided sanctions for unsportsmanlike behavior at the end of Game 1, top-scored for ZAKSA with 18 points. Maciej Muzaj notched 20 points for ONICO, gaining almost half of points of his team at one moment during the second set.

Plus Liga 2018/2019 playoff finals – Game 2:

(2) ONICO Warszawa – (1) ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle 0-3 (22-25, 24-26, 22-25), series 0-2

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
