Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle defeated the team that probably showed the best performance compared to the expectations prior to the 2019/20 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season, Trefl Gdańsk.


In Round 9 of the 2019/20 PlusLiga regular season, ZAKSA recorded a hard-fought victory over Trefl to stay at the top of the charts with a two-point lead in relation to the vice-leaders Jastrzębski Węgiel. The biggest revelation this season who made a five-game winning run prior to the match, Trefl, resisted for three sets. An intense battle was especially seen in the third set that lasted for 41 minutes. Ultimately, the experience of the Polish champions prevailed. Aleksander Śliwka top-scored for ZAKSA with 24 points (79.3% attack, 23/29).  Bartosz Filipiak tallied 22 points for Trefl.

PGE Skra Bełchatów, whose every win has been cut with a defeat in the next game, swept Aluron Virtu CMC Zawiercie.

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
