we may not have to wait until 2020, we are seeing the Jr's that are coming out of france. Luis and Emilio from RPT both have agreed that the best ( great form and technique) Jr's are not coming out of spain etc... they are coming out of france. And these Jr's have been using these colored balls since 2005. I have spoken to numerous French coaches and they have all said the same thing. Now whether we will have a french champion in the near future is debatable but we do know that the French Jr's attending the spanish academies for example all have a great base and pure technique to work with and that is one testament in favor of play and stay along with uniformity of coaching in france.
