Team profile

Algeria have recently emerged as one of the best teams in Africa, with their fantastic success over the last two years helped by their attractive and modern style of play.

The Algerian team is a result of more then seven years of work and development, with most players coming from the cities of Bejaia and Chlef where a lot of work was done during the 1990s to find players.

In 2000 most of these players started their international careers at the Girls' African Championship where they surprised everyone with their talent by winning the title. A year later the same girls won the junior title, beating all the other teams in straight sets, before participating in two World Championships.

The Algerian Federation's belief in the team saw them put together a new technical staff in 2006 and provide finance and material to help prepare for the African Games and the continental Olympic qualifiers.

The squad began to work more than three weeks a month, attended international camps and played strong teams such as Cuba and Italy to help them raise the level of their game.

In July 2006 Algeria was ready for the African Games, where they won gold. A month after, Algeria lost the African Championship in Kenya but played with six new players while resting their stars. But during the Olympic qualifier Algeria bounced back to claim an Olympic ticket. Some of the Algerian athletes are now playing in professional leagues in Europe, which helps develop their skills further. The Algerians play with a modern style adapted to their physical and technical skills. Their top players include Lydia Oulmou and Faiza Tsabet, who both play for Istres Volleyball in France.
