The Argentine youth team that is preparing for the World Championship in Tunis made a concentration in the province of La Pampa. The team arrived in Santa Rosa after one step through General Acha last Wednesday and trained in the city. The visit was organized by the joint action of SRV, the La Pampa and the Argentine Federations and the Sports Direction of the province.

The Sports Director, Ceferino Almudevar, highlighted the visit because it supposes the possibility of "watching the best players at home" in reference to the practices of the top volleyball level of Argentina that can be followed by both coaches and local players without having to travel. "We are always going to promote this type of actions because we all win" he said.

Gustavo Rodríguez, Vice-President of the Argentine Federation, also appreciated the "immediate collaboration" of all the parties to get the team to the province. "It is very important for the Federation to have provinces and sports directorates that collaborate because we know that it is expensive to hold concentrations and that the CENARD facilities are several times occupied with the senior teams" he said.

In turn, the coach Pablo Rico highlighted the evolution of the youth players with the incorporation of physical exercises and healthy habits that are inherent to professionalism, as well as the awareness that "this is the National Team and there is no time or effort to waste".

Regarding the World Championship, he told the team will try to get as high as possible, but clarified that "the expectations for the youth teams have to do with the fact that in three or four years we can see some of these guys in the Senior Team".
