Martin Bielicki

Coach
Inducted 2014

Martin Bielicki has coached five sports at Martin County High School, but his long-standing position as head coach of the volleyball team has made him a legend.

Bielicki was the head coach of Martin County’s volleyball team from 1982 to 2010.  In that time, his career record was a sparkling 631-191.  He was at the helm of two state championship squads that ended up nationally ranked in 1994 and 2009. Bielicki led 18 of his teams to district championships and also tallied two state runner-up finishes in 1997 and 1999. He was chosen the Class 5A Coach of the Year in 1994 and earned Florida Dairy Farmers Coach of the Year honors in 2009. With all of Bielicki’s success in volleyball, it speaks volumes that he had no organized volleyball background when he was first hired. To compensate, he went to camps, read books and sought advice from the experts in the sport, and it was not long before he developed Martin County into a volleyball power.

Always a promoter of high school talent, Bielicki developed the East Coast 16 Team Invitational Volleyball Tournament, which has grown into a prestigious event that attracts elite teams from across the Southeast. Additionally, he was a member of the American Volleyball Coaches Association and served as a mentor to local volleyball coaches in his area.
