Belgium Women’s Volleyball national team member Charlotte Leys is a new player of the Polish Championship runners-up Grot Budowlani Łódź.


Belgium national team outside hitter Leys, the bronze medalist from the 2013 CEV European Championships and silver medalist from the 2013 CEV European League, strengthened current Polish Championship runners-up Budowlani.

A 30-year-old Leys will return to playing in Poland after four years, coming from the Turkish side Galatasaray HDI Sigorta. Last time she played in Liga Siatkówki Kobiet, the outside hitter won the national Cup three times (2 with MKS Dąbrowa Górnicza and 1 with Trefl Proxima Kraków). In addition to these titles, Leys also became the Belgian champion twice and Cup winner once (all with Asterix Avo Beveren). Leys was named MVP of the 2013 CEV European League.

Budowlani also engaged the setter Julia Nowicka (BKS Profi Credit Bielsko-Biała) and extended with middle blockers - Slovakian Jaroslava Pencová and Małgorzata Śmieszek, outside hitters Agata Babicz, Anna Bączyńska and Julia Twardowska, and libero Maria Stenzel.

The middle blocker and also a captain Gabriela Polańska left 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

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
