Argentina will face a competition with a very demanding first round in Pool A facing Cuba, Brazil and Colombia. “It will be a very hard but outstanding experience for the girls towards the South American Juniors’ Championship. We face a very hard pool but we trained very good and now it will be the time to test the output of the girls” said the coach Horacio Bastit.

On the other Pool, B stand the host team of Peru, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic and Canada. The best three of each pool will qualify for the next phase with the leader of each pool qualifying directly for Semi-Finals while the second and third ranked teams fighting for the other two semi-final berths.
