M&M, please welcome at Survival Camp for first time Maciej and Maksym

Maksym Gerszkow

1. Describe yourself in 30 words.

My name is Maksym, but most of my friends call me Gery. I live in Szczecin, Poland. I am 20 years old and I finished school one year ago. In October I will start studying.

2. What is your referee story?

In primary school my PE teacher, now known as a FIBA referee, encouraged me to start officiating. I have started officiating in October 2021. I was playing basketball for 8 years. Right now, I am finishing my second season as a referee. Officiating became my passion for sure.

3. What is your hidden talent?

Im am not sure if I have any hidden talent, but if I have to pick one thing that I am doing very well, it is dancing. I am an extrovert, so dancing with others is natural for me:)

4. What is one “fun fact” about You?

In high school me and my teammates (we attended the same class) cut our hair bald on our lunch break. One mate didn’t manage to get his haircut and went to class with half a bald head. I was our barber:)

5. What is your favourite TV show?

My favourite TV show is “Peaky Blinders”. Once when I started watching this series, I could not step away from TV for 3 days.

Maciej Inerowicz

1. Describe yourself in 30 words.

I’m 22 and have smile on my face for the most of the time. I study psychology at UAM university in Poznań. Open-minded with lots of energy.

2. What is your referee story?

I was pushed towards refereeing by my middle school coach. Back then I wasn’t fit much, so I was compensating my lacks in perimeter defense by knowing how to take a charge. I referee since 2019/20 season, from 2022/23 season I’m Polish Basketball Association referee. In officiating I value the ability to learn many different skills and the opportunity to meet and get to know a lot of interesting people. And the most important- joy!

3. What is your hidden talent?

Karaoke- especially when I’m alone driving.

4. What is one “fun fact” about You?

I had an episode as a bass player in a punk rock band during my high school era.

5. What is your favourite TV show?

“The Office”
