Argentina celebrates, and will continue to celebrate the title in the U23 World Championship of this year, the first after many years of betting and working in the grass-root categories. Of course, the consecration achieved in Egypt should not be the conclusion, but the renewal of the commitment with the development path. In that way, within the 5 active National Teams in the male branch (Senior, U23, U21, U19 and U17) the U17 team is the first instance to get into the Argentine Selections.

Ariel Dobedout is the coach in charge of this team, which is already working. 'The U17 category is made up of the boys born in 2001 and 2002. The main objective is to capture potential players that will be part of the grass-root teams. In 2018 some of them will already be part of the junior team that will compete in the A2 league for almost two and a half months, where the emphasis is placed specially on learning the training methods', says the coach. It should be noted that the participation of the Junior Team (U19) in the A2 League has been one of the great instances of the development of the junior categories of our country.

Dubedout explains that in the last year "several observations were made throughout the country, where 14 and 15 year old boys are invited to participate in a training day. The players are also observed competing in the different regional and national tournaments. Then, a database is prepared and the players are gathered in concentrations of approximately 8 to 10 days'.

The coach works together with an integral staff: Santiago Domenech (Assistant), Alejandro Bertorello (Physical Trainer), Damian Poglajen (Doctor), David Caleri (Kinesiologist) and Diego David (Manager). For Dubedout there is a fundamental point: 'The communication with the coaches of all the country is so important to be able to do our work well, mainly with the teams that are developed in the inland regions of our country, since that communication facilitates the precision for future observations. Those coaches are the ones who train, work and know the players, who motivate them to grow, that is why they're so important'.

According to his vision, his current job is the maximum, a priority. 'This is a bet on the national team, to improve players so that they reach the National Team, it is the axis of my career' he said.
