This news comes from our friend Martin Jorge, who is the communications director for the Argentine fastpitch programs, as well as webmaster for the top Spanish-language fast pitch website, “Softball News LA”:
The last weekend in the city of Paraná Youth Men’s National Team held a rally to collect a total of 61 players, kicking off the 3rd stage of work proposed by the Technical. This group works to represent Argentina in the next World Youth Championship, to be held in the city of Paraná in November 2012.
This time the call was the tournament format since the screening was divided into 4 teams that were led by Julius Gamarci (Attack Coach), Gustavo Guerrinieri (Physical Trainer), José Alberto Guerrinieri (pitching coach) and José Sacks (Monitor of Paraná), in collaboration with Monica Mata (Monitor de La Pampa) and José Pianciola (Olavarria Monitor). For his part, Head Coach Mariano Spotorno observed and analyzed the game from outside the field.
The activity began on Saturday 13 in the morning with a general meeting. There Spotorno Mariano had a talk with players about an hour and provided with the uniforms to the players. Immediately after the games began to be played (a total of 4 per team).
On Sunday, the concentration continued the same pattern, making a cut of 14 to 17 hours. due to the high temperature and fatigue of the players. During that period of time, there was a meeting where the Technical outlined the objectives and content that will have this new stage of work. 17hs A activity resumed with two more games per team. On Monday 15 morning they played the last game of the merger, ending it at noon.
It should be noted that this stage primarily aims to evaluate players in competitive situations with the intention of finding the best exponents. To do this, then this concentration is generally divided the group into two subgroups, according to the level shown in this tournament. On one side is the National Team, made up of young people who at the discretion of the coaching staff, are currently in peak condition to face a higher level of competition and training. On the other hand, is the Development Group with children who, for whatever reason, currently fail to meet the boys at the National Team, but it is considered that in the course of a year may reach. However, it is clear that these groups are dynamic and can leave or enter them every young person who is deemed appropriate.
