The coaching of this team will be in the hands of the staff of the Argentine Juniors' Men Team headed by Fabián Muraco. "This claims the success of the plan headed in the year 2005 with the Argentine Youth's in their participation at the A2 League, with the same goal of improvement and growth.

“For us it is with pride that we make this announcement because it is part of our development plan in the Olympic four year period. We chose Olimpo de Bahia Blanca because of its tradition, the history of the club, its seriousness and what for them volleyball represents. It will be a very important job for the development of volleyball in the region and in the whole country because it will settle a development place, one where new players will be tried and a great work of the team in the schools" added FeVA President Gutierrez.

The President of Olimpo de Bahía Blanca, Alfredo Dagna, pointed out: “We are setting something with the FeVA that gives us calmness and confidence and that will be positive for both. Olimpo is a club with a 102 years background and no doubt the most important and traditional in the region because it has a large number of members and supports all sports. We have important teams of soccer but not only soccer. We want to fulfil all the necessities and confidence put on us".
