Calendar of preparations for EURO 2016
The European Championships in France are coming and the Polish national team will play in a group with Northern Ireland, Germany and Ukraine. What will the preparations of the Polish players for the most important event of 2016 look like? You will find everything in a special pill Łączy Nas Piłka.
In most European leagues, the spring round will end on Sunday May 15. Two days later, the players of the national team will gather at the Hotel Bryza in Jurata for a four-day camp, which is provisionally referred to as a regeneration training camp. - We would like to reconstruct oxygen and general preparation - explained the coach, Adam Nawałka, in November at a press conference. - But this training camp will also have a relaxing nature after a short, very intense league season. We will also invite wives and fiancées of players - he added.
Polish players will spend this short time on the Hel Peninsula incommon recreation, and daily training. At their disposal will be the whole advanced infrastructure of the hotel located at the beach: apartments and rooms with views of the Baltic Sea, a complex of swimming pools, spa and wellness area, a wellness centre, fitness club, tennis courts and a football pitch.
- We want to focus on an active form of recreation, in a nice, slightly more relaxed atmosphere that will allow players to maintain their shape from the league season - says the director of the national team, Tomasz Iwan. - At the same time we would like the team to integrate in a larger group and bond even more. When we meet in Arłamów later, all we will have to do is work.
Polish players will stay in Jurata until Saturday May 21, and then they will have a day off. On Monday May 23, everyone will have to appear in the Arłamów Hotel in the Polish Bieszczady Mountains. This is the place where the final stage of preparations for EURO 2016 will take place. On June 1 Polish players will play in Gdańsk with Netherlands, and five days later they will face Lithuania in the last test-match before the European Championships at the stadium of Wisła in Kraków.
