GTK starts trainings. Hard working in the preparation time

2018-08-09 16:10
GTK Gliwice - as one of the first two clubs in Energa Basket Liga - started preparations for the season 2018/19. There were significant changes in the team, but long time of preparation period and a large number of friendlies games should ensure the optimal form of the team at the start of the competition.
 
The previous - as a rookie team in Energa Basket Liga - GTK Gliwice ended season in the 14th place. Theoretically, the goal that was achieve by the team but despite this, the club was slightly unsatisfied, because there was really close to make the position better. Bearing in mind the attitude of the team including in the last games, where the newcomer passed a series of painful defeats, it was decided to complete rebuild. Only two players from past season were left in the squad, Kacper Radwański and Marek Piechowicz. It was put on a significant rejuvenation of the squad because the mentioned Piechowicz, who is 30 years old, will be together with the national team player of Estonia, Tanel Kurbas, the oldest player in GTK. Supplementing the foreign rotation, it was decided to employ: Dawid Słupiński, Szymon Kiwilsza, Piotr Robak and two youngsters, national players of the Polish youth team, Mateusz Szlachetka and Daniel Dawdo. For this roster, we used a proven scheme of selecting foreigners, employ fresh graduates of American universities: Riley LaChance, Brian Dawkins and Damonte Dodd. The only American with experience in Europe who played in our home league will be Myles Mack, who will be responsible for playmaking.
 
GTK Gliwice started preparation for the season on August 6 in the sports complex Jasna. On the first training appeared Polish players supported by the youth section of GTK. Foreigners will register on the training on Friday. - I do not hide that we missed training. For a long time I could not wait to meet together - admits Kacper Radwański. - It is very good that we have so much time to the first league game (6th October 6 - editorial note), because there are a lot of new faces in the team and we must have time to properly match - the player adds for whom the upcoming season will be the fourth next in the club. In the first week of trainings, the team will train once a day, using the gym and taking part in outdoor activities. At the end of the week, after the arrival of foreigners, the team will undergo comprehensive medical tests in the Fizjofit. From next Monday, the intensity of trainings will increase and the team will train twice a day.
 
The preparation period will take nine weeks in total. At that time, the team will play 16 friendly games. The plan includes games with other EBL teams, including Polski Cukier Toruń , BM Slam Stal Ostrów Wlkp., TBV Start Lublin and MKS Dąbrowa Górnicza, but also games with foreign teams such as: BK Opava, Dekstone Turi Svitava and PP TV Raj Żilina. Finally, GTK will take part in the Memoriam of the Kleinovcov brothers in Levice, where apart from the champions of Slovakia and GTK Gliwice, they will play NH Ostrava and Helios Suns Domżale. - There are a lot of games, but it's very good. Each subsequent match should cause that we will be better together on the floor - says Radwański. Most of the friendly games will be played away, but there will also some  in Gliwice. During the preparatory period, players will use three facilities: the aforementioned Jasna complex, Centrum Sportowo-Kulturalne Łabędź and for the first time the Gliwice Arena, where GTK will play its league matches in the upcoming season.
