   Korea Team

All the players from the Korean national junior women’s team have been chosen from the leading clubs and high school teams in the country but most of them have already gained international experienced having played in the national youth girl’s team.

The Korean Junior team has been traditionally strong in the Asian zone, finishing regularly in the top three positions at the Asian Championship from 1980-2000. However, the team missed out on a World Championship title after taking consecutive crowns in 1977 and 1981.

Mr Kim Kyung-Su is the head coach of the national junior women’s team and he is expected to do well due to his good reputation and outstanding career as one of the best high school coaches in Korea.
