USA to arrive in Baja California on Thursday for U23 World Championship


TIJUANA, Mexico, September 30, 2013.- The United States U23 National team will arrive in Baja California on Thursday October 3rd.


Americans are coached by legendary multi-medal winner Karch Kiraly who was also in charge of the Senior Squad that conquered the Visit Omaha Norceca Continental Championship in Nebraska.


Kiraly is assited by Reed Sunahara, who was known in Mexico for winning two international titles with two different squads in less than one month in 2012 (The Senior’s Pan Am Cup in Ciudad Juarez and the Girls U18 Continental Title in Tijuana).


Kiraly’s and Sunahara achievements in international events on the American bench have registered a combination of success in a little bit more than one year. In 2013 Kiraly won the Women’s Pan American Cup in Peru with Sunahara as assistant. Both also won the Norceca Championship in Omaha, and clinched a berth in the FIVB Women’s Grand Champions Cup.


Now, volleyball fans in Baja California and the U.S.-Mexico border area will have the chance to see the U23 American unit playing with the 21 point test rule in Mexico.


According to the roster registered on the FIVB tournament website USA’s second assistant coach is Joseph Trinsey while Jill Wosmek is the physiotherapist.


At this time there are three teams holding minicamps at the Baja California High Performance Center in Tijuana: Argentina, China and Dominican Republic.
