2017 At-A-Glance

The 2017 U.S. Girls' Youth National Team will compete in the FIVB Girls' U18 World Championship, Aug. 18-27, in Rosario and Santa Fe, Argentina.

In 2013, this team made history, becoming the first U.S. volleyball team of either gender to win a world championship medal at the youth or junior level, taking the silver after losing to China in the final in Thailand. In 2015, the U.S. earned another silver in the World Championship final against Italy.

The U.S., ranked No. 1 in the world, will compete in Pool B along with Russia, the 2017 European U18 champions; Brazil, the 2017 South American champions; plus, Belarus and Mexico.

The team left for Brazil on Aug. 10 for additional practice and scrimmage with the U18 National Teams from Italy (Aug. 12), Japan (Aug. 13), and Brazil (Aug. 15).
