Twelve players and coaches from Zhejiang will join the intensive training for Chinese men's and women's volleyball teams, according to a list released by China Volleyball Association on January 28. Among them, six male players are from Zhejiang Sports Lottery Men's Volleyball Team, while two female players are from Xitang Ancient Town Women's Volleyball Team based in Jiashan, Zhejiang.
The selected male players will be the main force of Chinese Men's Volleyball Team. Wu Sheng, the chief coach of the team, is also from Zhejiang. He was once the chief coach of Zhejiang men's and women's volleyball teams. The two selected female players are also cherished by the national team and will go to Ningbo Beilun Sports Training Base to check in for the training on February 1.
Being selected to the national teams is an acknowledgement of the performance of Zhejiang men's and women's volleyball teams in the past year as well as an inspiration for the players. The players will compete in various global events as the members of the national teams, thus rapidly improving their sports skills.
