As the local web portal „Trabajadores“ writes that, despite the changed international relations by the Cuban Volleyball Federation which no longer forbids its players to go abroad, 3 members of its national team requested to be excluded.

These are the setter Leandro Macías and the middle blockers David Fiel and Isbel Mesa. All three did not give reasons for dismissal.

This is the preliminary list of the Cuban national team

Opposites: Cepeda, Rendón; Receivers: Jiménez, Uriarte, Romero, Fundora, Alfonso, Hernández; Middle blockers: Chapman, Osoria, Albo; Setters: Calvo, González; Libero: García.

That list should emerge the group of 12 players who made the first tour of the campus this season, including the matches against Canada (Calgary) and Argentina (Mendoza) and participation in the NORCECA Cup scheduled for mid-May in Detroit.

The remaining summond players are: M. D. Gutiérrez, Rivera, Sosa, Salazar, Montes de Oca, Goide, Estrada, Macías, Fiel and Mesa (the last 3 fell off from the list).

The experienced libero Keibel Gutiérrez did not appear among the called up players since he retired from the NT after the 2014 World Championship in Poland.
