At the beginning of the year, Poland has appointed American Dave Majeski as a new head coach for the softball women's senior and U22 national teams. Majeski takes over the helm as head coach of Poland after Dutch Ben Ten Pas.
Only a few months ahead of the historic Women's Softball European Championship, which will be co-hosted by two Polish cities - Żory and Rybnik – along with Ostrava and Frydek Mistek (Czech Republic), Majeski achieves his dream of being a head coach in the country of his heritage. He is hoping that the team led by him will show their best on home soil. Formerly a promising player at the University of Florida, Dave has coached women's softball for almost 20 years.
"Coaching in the European Championship is a great thing anywhere. The tournament this year being held in Poland adds even more excitement. I envision our Polish team playing harder and with more passion with the home crowd cheering loudly for them. Hopefully, I can lend my experience in running tournaments to make this year’s Championship an even bigger event than in years past" - said the new head coach of Poland.
On a way to the European Championship (June 30 - July 6), Poland is going to play at the Panthers Cup in Switzerland (May 31 - June 2) and at the Prague Softball Week (June 25-28).
