Last season’s experience shows us that it’s important for starters to have significant rest time after their season of clubs, knowing that the main objective of the year is the European Championships. This period will allow the youngest to express themselves, to discover the international context and to raise their level of play. We need to prepare this new generation and, at the same time, find its identity: I want us to play every match to 100% of our potential,” he said, also ensuring that the group will be complete for the home Pool of Orléans (20/25 June), although the conditions of Benjamin Toniutti, Earvin Ngapeth and Nicolas Le Goff, who need a little more time to recover.

This is the list:
Setters: Raphael Corre, Kellian Motta Paes.
Opposite: Théo Faure.
Middle blockers: Quentin Jouffroy, Simon Roehrig, Daryl Bultor, Médéric Henry.
Outside hitters: Kévin Tillie, Antoine Pothron, Luka Basic, Timothée Carle, Hilir Henno.
