Stéphane Antiga made a surprising decision regarding the continuation of his coaching career – he switched from working in Men’s to work in the Women’s Volleyball!

 

The French expert Stéphane Antiga is the new head coach of the Polish Women’s Volleyball side DevelopRes SkyRes Rzeszów, the club announced. This came as a huge surprise knowing that a 43-year-old coach only worked with male teams until now. It also came as a surprise since several big Men’s teams, like PGE Skra Bełchatów and ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle, showed interest in his services.

A one-time FIVB World Champion as a coach (Poland national team) Antiga led ONICO Warszawa last season, winning the silver medal in Plus Liga but already in the mid-season, it was clear that the team from the Polish will not extend the contract with him. 

As for DevelopRes, they won the bronze medal in the Polish Women’s League last season. Antiga will replace Bartłomiej Dąbrowski at the helm of the club.

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
