Vladimír Pech

Vladimír Pech first started coaching in 1974 when he became coach of a men's club team. Following eight years in charge he switched to a women's team called Liberec in the Czech Republic Extraleague in 1982. He soon switched back to the men's competition to the Dukla Liberec team where he stayed for four years before moving in 1986 to be the head coach of the Youth centre at Tectilana Liberec.

In 1989 Pech had his first taste of international coaching when he became the head coach of the junior and youth women's teams, leading them to a 5th placing at the 1991 Youth Women's World Championship in Lisboa and a 2nd placing at the Junior Women's European Championship in Greece in 1992.

From 1990-92 Pech also held down the post of sports director of the women's national teams, before moving to the German Bundesliga where he coached TSG Tubingen to a 5th place finish in the 1993-94 season.

Pech returned to the sports director of the women's national teams in 1996-98, leading the Czech Republic to a 10th placing at the Junior Women's European Championships in 1996, 6th place at the 1997 Junior Women's World Championship, a 3rd place finish at the Junior Women's European Championships in 1998 and a 7th placing at the 1999 Junior Women's World Championship in Canada. He was also in charge when the Czech Republic finished 9th at the 1997 Youth Women's World Championship in Thailand.

Since then Pech moved back to the Bundesliga to coach TVDB Bremen to 8th place in the 1999-2000 season before coaching BTV Luzern to 3rd place in the Switzerland 1st Division in 2000-2001.

Nowadays Pech is the head coach of the Youth centre VK TU Liberec.
