In April 2015 Jacek Nawrocki was chosen over several foreign applicants to lead his native country’s women’s team. Nowrocki, whose background as a coach is based on working with men’s teams, said he was confident he could make the transition to the women’s game quickly.
After retiring as a player in 2001, Nawrocki coached Polish men’s club PGE Skra Belchatow. They won two national championships, two Polish Cups, a silver medal and a bronze in the CEV Volleyball Champions League, and two silvers and a bronze at FIVB Volleyball Club World Championships. In his first season with the Polish women, he helped the team to silver medals at the 1st European Games in Baku, kick-starting an effort to rebuild a team which will revive Polish women's volleyball.
