The 2018/19 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff quarterfinalists PGE Skra Bełchatów appointed the new head coach.


The nine-time Polish champions Skra will be headed by a very young coach in the 2019/20 season. A 34-year-old Michał Gogol replaced Italian expert Roberto Piazza who decided to fully commit to working with the Netherlands Men’s national team.

Gogol spent most of his coaching career, which started in 2008, as an assistant coach (Tauron AZS Częstochowa, Stocznia Szczecin, and Poland U23 Men’s national team). He also performed a job of a statistician in Asseco Resovia Rzeszów. In the last three seasons, Gogol has worked as a head coach: firstly in Stocznia Szczecin for two seasons (2016-2018) and then in Indykpol AZS Olsztyn from which he came to Skra.

Although he will be the youngest head coach in the PlusLiga next season, Gogol has already won two gold medals in the FIVB World Championship (2014 and 2018) as a member of Poland senior Men’s national team coaching staff.

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
