PGE Skra Bełchatów swept Asseco Resovia Rzeszów at home in the classic of the Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship.

 

In an advanced match of Round 12, which was the “klasyk“ of the PlusLiga, Skra relatively easy outplayed Resovia: 3-0 (25-19, 25-23, 25-21). These two teams have met 56 times prior to the match today, providing fans unforgettable battles for trophies in the last decade. Skra improved their record to 5-1, while Resovia continued their poor campaign, which consists of only two wins and five defeats. The losing side played the match without two starters, one that has been sidelined for a while (Marcin Możdżonek) and one that missed out his first match in the season (Zbigniew Bartman). Iranian Milad Ebadipour top-scored for Skra with 15 points which were as many points as the Frenchman Nicolas Maréchal put down for Resovia.

One more advanced match has been played tonight but it was valid for Round 13. It was also a big match, in which champions Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle hosted vice-champions Warszawa with both teams entering the match as undefeated (5-0 each). The team from the Polish capital, who from now competes under the new name (VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa, instead of PROJEKT), downed ZAKSA in the tie-break mostly thanks to Bartosz Kwolek (24 points). Aleksander Śliwka made 22 for the losing side.

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
