SUMMON PLAYERS BY JULIO VELASCO FOR THE SEASON 2017

Buenos Aires, Argentina, April 7, 2017 - The Argentine Men's Seniors Team coach, Julio Velasco summon the players for this international season with very demanding competitions for all categories. The official roster includes 30 players, including the Seniors', the U 23, the Juniors and invited players. Some of them already started to work at Cenard facilities this Monday, April 3th.

For this season, the side-spiker Facundo Conte is left aside, that is taking a year of rest to recover physically and mentally, in a total agreement between the coach Velasco and the player, getting ready for the great future challenges of the National team. Velasco considered that it is very important that the player has a rest so that next year he will be in his best conditions for the World Championship and to start the path for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

With the same thought he offered the Captain Luciano De Cecco, another of the players with attendance at all international competitions 2016, also a year of rest after being part of the Albicelestes for ten consecutive international seasons; and also he talked with the older players but the setter chose to be part of the team in the present season, that will include anyway some holidays that will help to recover for the future.

The younger players that have not played along the whole season were not offered a chance to rest
