BC Tsmoki Minsk preparing for new season after summer breaks

For BC Tsmoki Minsk the season begins only in October 2015, but they are already training for the forthcoming campaign.

Igor Grishchuk, Tsmoki’s coach, is a professional and demands the same attitude from his charges. He says that 1.5 months of fruitful training will pass very quickly.

Igor Grishchuk:
They had a training plan for summer and they all know what to do. So there are no problems here! Yes, workload is high now. The first day or two we were getting used to this rhythm but now we are working more than during the championship.

All leaders of Tsmoki Minsk are still in the team, with Denis Pastukhov making a pause in his career because of an injury. Garrett Stutz joined the team. Igor Grishchuk admits that he has always wanted to see Garrett in his team.

Youngsters Sergei Kozlov and Yevgeny Belyakov will play for Tsmoki’s senior squad next season.

The team will be freed from the first stages of the Belarusian championship. Instead, Tsmoki will focus on the VTB United League and new FIBA Cup.

Tsmoki will spend the entire September in Lithuania before hosting Unix from Kazan at Minsk Arena in the opening tour of the VTB United League.
