Argentina Junior National Team Site Volleyball Tour June 7-19, 2005

April 05, 2005 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports News
The Argentine Federation has asked BIP to bring a group of strong u22 players to Buenos Aires in early June to help prepare their Junior National Team for the summer's competitions. We will bring 22 upper-level current collegiate players for this event which will see our delegation travelling with and playing against the actual Argentine Junior National Team. We expect to play in front of 2000+ fans in neighborhoods and suburbs of Buenos Aires such as Olavarria, Zarate, and Los Toldos. We will also play various matches against the Argentina Youth National Team, Senior "B" Team, and possibly some professional and/or
u22 club programs in cities like Rosaria, Cordoba, and/or Mendoza near the Chilean border.

Players should be "USA Pipeline" level players as we're expecting a high level of playing and training. This will be a USAV sanctioned event and volleyball will be the #1 priority on the trip.

Tom Hilbert (Colorado State) and Kevin Hambly (former USA National Team Assistant Coach) will be coaching the teams, and they will be joined by at least 2 other top coaches from the NCAA coaching ranks.

Players will leave the USA on June 7, 2005 and arrive in Buenos Aires, Argentina the following day. Departure from Buenos Aires should be on June 18, 2005, which will have players arrive in the USA on June 19.
