PGE Skra Bełchatów beat VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa by a 3-1 (25-23, 21-25, 25-22, 25-20) in the big match that closed the seventh round of the 2019/20 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


There are no more undefeated teams in the 2019/20 PlusLiga regular season. Warszawa lost their first match this season after making a seven-game winning streak. Skra was the team that stood on their way mostly thanks to Mariusz Wlazły (19 points) and Robert Milczarek (70.6% reception, 17 digs, 41.2 perfect). Bartosz Kwolek scored 14 points for the team from the Polish capital who gave away the top spot in the charts to Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle.

ZAKSA had to work hard to record their seventh win in the competition. Despite playing without two starters due to injuries, Zbigniew Bartman and Marcin Możdżonek, and having won only two games prior to today, Asseco Resovia Rzeszów resisted champions for five sets. This was the 74 mutual encounter of the two sides, which makes this duel a true classic of the Polish volleyball. With this win, ZAKSA reduces the gap to only two wins (38-36). Aleksander Śliwka and Łukasz Kaczmarek tallied 14 points apiece for ZAKSA, while Łukasz Wiśniewski made 85.8% Attack (12/14). Canadian Nicholas Hoag put down 23 points for Resovia.

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
