I’ve been a professional volleyball coach at international and club level for over 20 years.
In that time I’ve been a participant in the all the major international events (Olympics, World Championships, World League) with the National Teams of Australia and Germany and many of the top club leagues (Italian, Polish, German, Belgian, European Champions League). In 2012, 2013 and 2014 I coached Berlin Recycling Volleys to the German Bundesliga title. In 2015, I added a CEV Champions League Bronze Medal to the tally. In 2015-16 I moved to Poland and Jastrzębski Węgiel winning the Plus Liga Bronze Medal in 2017. In 2018-19 season I coached Aluron Virtu Warta Zawiercie to the semifinals of league and cup for the first time in club history. From 2017-2020 I was Head Coach of the Australian National Team, leading them in FIVB and AVC competitions including World Championships in September 2018. In September 2019, we won the silver medal at the Asian Championships for Australia’s first medal in that competition in twelve years.
I watch and study a lot of volleyball for my job, preparing for my job and for fun.
Sometimes I come across things about volleyball that interest/amuse/annoy me.
These are those things.
