VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa truly looks sensational in the 2019/20 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season but they drop one point against underdogs in Round 9.

 

VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa, reinforced with Belarussian opposite hitter Artur Udrys (recovered from an injury that kept him sidelined from the start of the season), defeated GKS Katowice in Round 9 of the 2019/20 PlusLiga regular season in five sets. With the win, the team from the Polish capital came in second in the standings (9-1; 24 points) and, probably, the only reason why they aren’t in the first place is the fact they played two matches less than the leaders Jastrzębski Węgiel. Bartosz Kwolek top-scored for Warszawa with 21 points. Jakub Jarosz made 25 for Katowice.

The last-placed MKS Będzin recorded their premiere victory in the competition, for which they needed nine games.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

All this because volleyball is not e real professional sport and many clubs are managed with people with (almost) zero experience and knowledge in volleyball. And they manage money from state companies or government directly. Do not expect that that people will think differently. That is why volleyball will never move to another level and will always have some small “make up” in the future Reply

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
