A member of the USA national team James Shaw has signed a contract with Zaksa Kedzierzyn Kozle.

 

He has penned a deal until the end of the season. In the roster of the Polish team, he will replace Slawomir Jungiewicz, who has been struggling with a knee injury and will play as THE OPPOSITE!

"I decided to sign a contract with ZAKSA, because I was looking for a good opportunity to start a new path in my volleyball career and it was ZAKSA who gave me a chance. I received the opportunity to join the strong team, the finalist of the Champions League from the previous season, the team that counted in the fight for the highest goals and all these aspects were important. Playing for ZAKSA is also a great opportunity for me to develop my personal life. I realize that I am still at the stage of collecting experience to become a better player. The prospect of playing in such a strong team with the support of amazing fans that you have in Poland is exciting."

The first professional steps he made in Italy, playing for Padova in 2016/2017 season and playing in Perugia in the last season.

This is a completely new adventure for James Shaw who is also currently a member of the U.S. national team.

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
