Anapa, Russia, May 21, 2013- Following a short training tour in Baja California, the Mexico’s Boys’ U19 squad arrived in the Russian city of Anapa on the shores of Black Sea to begin a new stage in their preparation for the age-group FIVB World Championship to be held in the cities of Tijuana and Mexicali, Mexico.

Besides training, the team coached by Oscar Licea will play some friendly matches against European squads such as Russia and Poland.

“This training camp in Russia will help us a lot in terms of preparation,” Licea said. “Most of the boys finished competing in the National Junior Olympic Championships a few days ago and we started our tour in Baja. This is part of the final stage prior to the World Championship.”

This will be the second overseas training camp for the Mexican boys as the national team spent also a two-week period in Saquarema, Brazil in early April.

During their stay in Brazil they played against local, regional and even the national team of the South American country, where the Mexican youngsters won a couple of matches.
