Brazil gears up for South American Boys’ U17 South American Championship

 
In the first edition of the South American Boys’ U17 South American Championship held in 2011 in Ecuador, Brazil won the cup defeating Argentina in the final 3-2.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, November 29, 2013 - The Volleyball Development Centre (CDV) in Saquarema, Rio de Janeiro, will hold the second South American Boys’ U17 South American Championship from December 4 to 7.

Hosts Brazil who are also the current championship title holders, will face Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay and Uruguay in the competition.

In Saquarema, Rio de Janeiro, all six teams will face each other once in the classification stage with the top four advancing to the semifinals, which will define the two teams who will compete for the title.

From November 9 to 17, the Colombian city of Popayán hosted the second edition of the South American Youth Girls' Championship, where the Brazilian team was also crowned champion. The Brazilian team guided by the Argentine coach Daniel Moine are completing their  preparations for the tournament at the High Performance Center in the Colombian capital.

Colombian coach Daniel Moine unveiled the expectations that he has for the team, "I think the championship is a great success for the South American Volleyball Confederation because it is a good opportunity for the kids to start gaining international experience, knowing what it is to be in a big tournament with the best teams in South America. Colombia have had good training time, which compensates for their lack of international exposure. The teams do not know each other well and I hope we have a good performance."
