Slovakia

The Slovakian Boy's U19 national team has been in preparation for the 2003 Boy's U19 World Championship in Thailand since 2001.

Coach Hiadlovský has had his players in camp for approximately 90-100 days per year and the team's results over the past two years reflect the hard work and determination, in which this side has done.

Following 8th and 3rd place finishes at two tournaments in Slovakia in 2001, the Slovakian U19 Boy's side never finished outside of the top four in five tournaments in 2002. The year culminated in victory at the Christmas International Tournament in Slovakia.

2003 has brought further dividends with victory at the Boy's U19 European Qualification tournament in Slovakia before a 7th place finish at the Boy's U19 European Championships in Croatia and a 4th at the Mies Cup in Belgium.

This team boasts a lot of natural talent from a mix of players who have come through the Volleyball centre of the Slovak Volleyball Federation in Trencin and other youth Volleyball clubs around the country.

Captain Lukas Divis is one of the standouts in an attack-accentuated team and make sure you keep an eye on him as he leads his side through what will be a tournament, which will bring a number of good results for this Slovak side.
