Venezuela will not play on the competition so five teams will play one against the other – with a free date for each team (the day they would face Venezuela). For Argentina it will be the last preparation towards the South American Championship that qualifies for the 2013 World Championship. The other participating countries are Mexico, Brasil and the host team of Canada.
The best two ranked teams will play on Sunday in the final, while the third and fourth team will play for the Bronze Medal. Only the fifth ranked team will be eliminated in the preliminary round.
Argentina finished playing four friendly matches this Saturday – two in Kamloops and two in Kelowna, v University local teams.
