In this regard, the head coach Leonard Gravano described what the premises are at this start of planning for 2022. “The main objective of this first National Concentration is, fundamentally, to meet all the girls, to evaluate how they are physically after the preseason that each one was doing in their clubs. And with regard to the technical issue, we are looking for the players to gradually acquire match rhythm. One of the main aspects that we have to work on to achieve what we are looking for is that they play more games, that they have many game actions to solve. For now we are not proposing many strategies or structures, we are only focused on a couple of concepts, so that the game can appear and they can be found as well. “That’s why -she added-, we are working with 21 players, that allows us to put together two teams and be able to play many games between us; in this way, the level is as even as possible, and we generate those scenarios and game situations that we want them to resolve”, described the Tucuman coach.
