VOLLEYBALL TEAM IN THE POLISH PARTNER SCHOOL:
One of the best sport teams in our school is volleyball team, which consists of 6 well-skilled girls. "My team is well-disciplined and perfectly prepared for the matches", says Andrzej Bubel, coach. "The thainings which are held very weekend requires a huge amound of effort and energy, but that's not a problem for them". "I am dedicated to the game, I want to see the results of my effort", says one of the girls. "Girls come to the trainings because of their passion, they know it's the best for them" says the coach. But is it?
Girls compete with many teams. "sometimes it's very tough, we play with great teams which play very well and we have to predict their next move, that's difficult" says one of the girls. "The match we played in January was our success, unluckily our last wasn't good, we were torn up. The opponents were faster and stronger, they had advantage over us. We didn't show out abilities", they say. "Girls never give up if they lose a match. They showed it in the match with Gimnazjum1, they were completely involved in the match. I was really impressed by that game", the coach says. Apparently girls were full of enthusiasm and energy. One of the volleball players said "I was so happy when I scored and the match was ours, that was fabulous". Faith can win everything.
Recently our team had a sparing in Włodowice. They were playing for over two hours. "It was like a training for us. We wanted to have fun, try new tactics and improve our skills. We wanted to let go of our energy playing. And we've made it! It was a great fun for us and a training at the same time." they say happily.
Our volleyball team is a great example of the fact that if you've got passion you have to do everything to make it real. Girls can fight. Girls have power. "One, two three, we shall conquer thee!".

ANOTHER REAL ARTICLE ABOUT A LOCAL FOOTBALL TEAM:

A POPULAR LOCAL FOOTBALL TEAM IN POLAND.
'Zrodlo Kromolow' is a popular soccer team in the area of Zawiercie. It plays in the fourth league and has the 14th place in the league. It took its name from its location. Kromolow is a small town -suberb of Zawiercie. The springs of the Warta River originate in Kromolow. The Polish word 'zrodlo' means 'spring'.
The coach of the team is Bogdan Szadkowski. He is 36 years old and he has played football for about 18 years. 'I'm satisfied with my team’s results' - he says – 'But we could be better' - he adds. Mr Szadkowski tried to assess the quality of the Polish soccer. 'Unfortunately the Polish soccer is at the low level. In Poland, there are too little soccer schools where young people are trained. If the schools exist, they are run in an incorrect way. Young people don’t have a good training. Of course, there are a few players who go to the top, but still not enough' – he said.
In his team he would like to have more players. He has not got enough back up players, that is why his team's results are not as good as he wishes. Is it a problem in Poland in general? Why do other countries have enough players and why does not Poland have? Aren't we soccer fans? I am sure not, as soccer is the most popular sport in Poland. The reasons may lie in lack of encouragement for young people in Poland. One thing is sure - something should be changed to make the quality of the Polish soccer better.

Euzebiusz Smolarek - Polish footballer, appearing in a position as assistant or attacker, the country representative. From his earliest childhood Smolarek dreamt of playing in the representation of Poland. A number of successes of his father in the national colours had a crutial impact on that.

He scored the first goal for the national team on 3rd September 2005 at the Silesian Stadium in the elimination match against Austria to the World Championships 2006.

Smolarek knew him perfectly from Feyenoord. On 11th October 2006, during the elimination to the European Championships 2008 match with Portugal, he shot 2 goals. He has become 'the father of the triumph', favourite footballer of the Polish fans and an unquestioned star of the team.

A SPORT WHICH WE ADMIRE
Ski jumping is a sport which I admire. I am a fun. I kiek watching it very much. Ski jumping is an individual sport. It takes place on a specially built ski-jump. It is not accessible to amateurs. The current world record is of a Norwegian Bjørn Einar Romøren. However, I am a ski jumping fan, I would like to explain that would not evr practice it. I like watching extreme sports but I would never practise any of them. In my opinion, taking risk of losing one's health or even life just for fame or for thrill is simply madness. That is why I have not practised such sports as paragliding or high-mountain climbing so far, and I am sure I willl never change my mind.
