Jorge Garbey
Cuban Jorge Garbey took the coaching position of the Dominican Republic in January 2003 with instant success and the national women's team has been improving ever since.

In the Pan American Cup in the first month of 2003 in Saltillo, Mexico he
led his side to the silver medal after the Dominicans had defeated Cuba for the first time in 35 years in a superb come-from-beind 3-2 victory.

Garbey improved that feat with another five set victory over Cuba, this time for the gold medal in the Pan Am Games in Santo Domingo.

During the Norceca
Continental Championship, also on Dominican soil, Garbey guided the Dominican Republic to the bronze medal after losing to Cuba in a five-setter during the semifinals.

After receiving a wildcard for the 2003 World Cup, Garbey led the Dominican Republic to a credible 10th place finish with three wins before leading the team to Olympic qualification. Despite missing out to Cuba at the Norceca Continental Qualification tournament Garbey's side won the South American Continental Qualification tournament in January.
