Team profile

The team comprises a group of players from the Youth, Junior, and men’s teams as well as from several clubs from all over the republic. This team will give an opportunity for the players from the “B” team to participate in an international world championship and thus will open the field for them to become first-team players.

Most of the U23 players took part in other world championships with either the junior or youth teams. This team will expand the circle of players involved internationally and give the coach a better choice of players as it will raise the level of competition between the players. It will also improve the level of volleyball at the clubs the players belong to and raise the level of Youth and Junior national teams when they participate in their age-specific teams.
