PREPARATIONS for October’s Buenos Aires Youth Olympic Games in Argentina are ongoing for the Solomon Islands Under-17 junior Kurukuru futsal team.

Head Coach Stanley Puirana said the squad has already resumed their trainings and are training three days a week after last month’s one-week training camp in Australia.

Coach Puirana said last month’s one week training camp in Sydney has been very helpful with the final selection of for the squad and also helping the players adapt to playing on a standard sized futsal court.

Puirana says he expects to name the final squad for the Junior Kurukuru U-17 futsal team later this month.

The Junior Kurkurus are training on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the Multipurpose Hall from 3pm to 5pm.

Meanwhile the 2018 Buenos Aires Youth Olympic Games in Argentina will kick off from October 7-18.
