At the Continental Cups in Bischofsgrün and Oberwiesenthal the team of the Czech Republic showed up with František Vaculík as new head coach.
Vaculík was jumping himself until 2007 in the Czech B-team. After retiring from his active sports career he became coach and assisted Matjaž Zupan and Vasja Bajc at their work for the Czech B-team. In the 2008/09 season he served as assistant coach to Richard Schallert in the A-team.
Since the beginning of this season he is responsible for the ladies national team. Next to this commitment he is also working as club coach in Harrachov.
