Team profile

Korea Junior Women’s Team has been traditionally strong in Asia but relatively weak on the world level.

The national team finished third at the Asian Junior Women’s Championship in 2000, second at the FIVB Volleyball Junior Women’s World Championship in 2001, fourth at the Asian Junior Women’s Championship in 2002 and ninth at the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Junior World Championship in 2003. Korea failed to qualify for the 2005, 2007 and 2009 World Junior Women’s Championship but return this year.

All the players of Korea National Junior Women’s Team have been chosen from the leading high school teams and most of them have been chosen from Korea Youth Girls’ team.
 
The team will have a training period starting around the middle of June before departing for Peru.

Coach profile

Following on from 2010, Mr. Gi-Ju Park continues to lead the Korea junior women’s team.

For many years the coach had success at high school level.

He then moved onto the international level as an assistant coach for the women’s senior side, helping them to fifth place at the 2009 FIVB Women’s Grand Champions Cup in Japan.
