After a very good season 2016, Seahawks Gdynia ended up the season being defeated by one team only – Panthers Wrocław. This loss was costly though, as Seahawks had to give out their championship to Panthers. Summer was not only a time of rest, but also of hard work for the management of Seahawks. The whole team is doing their best to prepare for the upcoming season.
Seahawks are recruiting
On the 7th of October, Seahawks organized a recruitment evening, during which 40 candidates gathered to get a place in one of the main teams. Among gathered, were many already experienced athletes and some made a long journey to arrive at the recruitment evening.
This was not the only possibility to be a part of Seahawks, though. Each person, who would like to take part in trainings, is warmly welcomed to contact the club.
