“We had a good organized tournament and the chance to train here,” said Brazilian Wagner Pacheco, coach of Dominican Republic. “We faced good rivals, had our ups and downs, but this helped us to experiment some variations to prepare for the U-20 Pan Am Cup in Cuba and also the World Championship.”

“We don´t like to lose, but the final balance of this competition was totally positive if you consider that we reached the final with a team of Baja California”, said Argentinean coach of Mexico, Estanislao Vachino.
