USA Field Hockey to send Men’s Senior and U19 teams to Argentina

Dec. 05, 2010, 10:37 p.m. (ET)

While most people are spending the first few weeks of December preparing for Christmas and trying to stay warm, the senior and junior men’s national teams will be heading down to South America to enjoy some Southern Hemisphere summertime and play a test series against the national teams from Argentina and Chile.

 From December 8-22, 2010 the teams will be playing test matches at the Centro Nacional de Alto Rendimiento Deportivo (CeNARD) training complex.  Each of the squads will play four matches against the Argentines and one match against the Chileans. 

 “We’re really looking forward to playing against our South American competitors, “Coach Nick Conway said.  “For our national team players, it’s more great [international] exposure as we build towards our Pan American Games push.”

 “I’m also thrilled to be able to take a U19 team as well to give a large group their first exposure to South America as that’s a big part of what we’re able to offer to our younger players [the ability to go to interesting places around the world]” Conway continued. “Going to Buenos Aires is a great opportunity for the younger guys.  We’re really looking forward to the Paris of the south!”
