Jens Tietboehl has worked as a national coach with the German Volleyball Association for almost 17 years, primarily responsible for training young players. "It is my goal that as many as possible players claim a place in the squad of the Women's National Team," he says.
Examples include Atika Bouagaa, Cornelia Dumler, Kathy Radzuweit, Tina Gollan, Domenice Steffen, Mareen Apitz, Maren Brinker, Lenka Duerr and Saskia Hippe who were started out with Tietboehl and continued on to the senior National Team.
Tietboehl's greatest success as a national coach was the sensational win of the gold medal by Germany at the 2007 U18 European Championship. At that time Lenka Duerr and Saskia Hippe had a large share on this victory and celebrated the silver medal at the European Championship in Germany and Switzerland only six years later.
Tietboehl was born on 27 October 1962 in Kleinmachnow. He is married and has one child. His hobbies include travelling and spending time with his family.
