Saulius Matikonis - Head Coach

"To do our best is to concentrate, to be determined, and to believe in the body, to allow it to flow. It means putting in the maximum physical and mental effort. Then competition and cooperation become one. There is a difference between worrying about winning and worrying about trying to win. When we just want to win, we care about things we can’t control. Winning or losing a game depends on us and the skills and efforts of our opponents.
