In 2017. Croatia NT will play:
* ECH 2017 (Pool B with Italy, Belarus and Georgia)
* FIVB EQ (Pool A with Russia, Hungary, Greece, Austria, Georgia) - host
* WGP (3 weeks + Final) host of 3.round
*Mediterranean Games (Still no more info, I only know that they are gone play)
As you can see in 2017. their is a lot of competitions. I think that younger players will go to MG. because for some players this is just to much
I still don't know what is gone happen with some players, if they are retired from NT or not. What will Aksentijevic do. He can make some new generation or He will stay with Jerkov, Topic, Milos, Grbac etc. Maybe it is just not time yet or maybe it is.
S: Klara Peric, Bernarda Brcic, Ana Grbac, Vedrana Jaksetić
OPP: Samanta Fabris, Bruna Ana Vrankovic, Jelena Alajbeg, Dinka Kulic
OH: Mia Jerkov, Mira Topic, Lea Cvetnic, Klara Klaric, Barbara Dapic
MB: Maja Poljak, Ema Strunjak, Ivana Milos, Tamara Susic, Iva Jurisic, Beta Dumancic
L: Rene Sain, Nikolina Božičević
I think that our NT can expected a lot of from Klara Peric, Ema Strunjak. They are our the biggest talents in our NT and with Samanta Fabris who is playing amazing this season they can become leaders in our new generation. I just hope that Samanta can continue playing like this. I don't know what is with our players that are in US colleges are they gone play PRO. volleyball or what. So many young players went to US and I don't know how they developed.
If you would ask me... I would gave up from some players(Ana Grbac) and give space to younger players(Klara Peric) and try to make great players from them.
