The Polish men’s volleyball legend Mariusz Wlazły extended his contract with PGE Skra Bełchatów.

 

On the sidelines of all the euphoria regarding the 2019 CEV Champions League semifinal match between PGE Skra Bełchatów and Cucine Lube Civitanova, good news came for the fans of the Plus Liga powerhouse - their captain Mariusz Wlazły will stay in the club for one more year!

“We’ve made a deal and I will play in PGE Skra Bełchatów next season. For me, this is one of many great feelings which have accompanied me throughout my career. I don’t hide that this club is very important to me. I treat him very personally, which is why I’m very happy that I will be able to defend these colors in the future” - said Wlazły, who has been the part of the club for 16 straight years.

Officially, the contract between Skra and Wlazły has not yet been signed, but the terms have been agreed.

Besides Wlazły, several other players put their signatures on a new contract earlier: Jakub Kochanowski, Kacper Piechocki, Milan Katić, Piotr Orczyk, Karol Kłos, Milad Ebadipour, and Grzegorz Łomacz. It is also known that the team will be led in the 2019/20 season by a new head coach given that the Italian Roberto Piazza decided to part ways with Skra at the end of the season. A month ago, he took over Dutch men’s national team.

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
