The U.S. Under-18 Women’s National Team will hold its final training camp of the year in Sunrise, Fla. from Dec. 11-18.
U.S. Soccer Women’s Technical Director April Heinrichs has called in 26 players, the majority born in 1994 with several born in 1993 and 1992. These ‘94s will most likely form the core of the team that will compete to attend the 2014 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada, but all are still age-eligible and being evaluated for possible spots on the team that will attempt to qualify for the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Uzbekistan. That team has an age cut-off of players born on or after Jan. 1, 1992.
