Olympic Qualifying Tournament
Preparation time-table for France

The Olympic Qualifying Tournament preparation for France will start on 8 May 2012 in Bourges.

Pierre Vincent explained that the training programme for this event was no different from previous years. The French Cup final dates were changed and Vincent may be without the key players until 24 May.

The first camp in Bourges will run between 8-17 May. All the players whose season ended early report to camp on day 1, other players will join when they can.

Vincent hopes to have the majority of players in camp by the 13th. However to make sure they have enough players, "practise players" will also be called up.

The second camp which starts on the 24 May will consist of all the players who will be involved with the final preparation.
