He was the top Czech pitcher in ERA in the 2008 World University Championship, allowing one earned run (though five unearned) in 5 1/3 IP; his 1.59 was .76 ahead of Martin Schneider.

While Stříbrcký was playing, he also gained coaching experience in the Czech Republic by coaching youth baseball from 2003-2009. Stříbrcký was director of the Portuguese Baseball Academy from 2010-2018 (playing there as well) then became hitting coach of the DSL Blue Jays in 2019. He may have served as a DSL hitting coach in 2018 as well, but this could not be confirmed. In 2020 he was slated to return to the DSL but a little thing known as COVID-19 interfered with the minor league season. He served as hitting coach, alongside Andy Fermín, of the DSL Blue Jays in 2021, then was development coach of the FCL Blue Jays in 2022 and Dunedin Blue Jays in 2023.
