Posted on 24 March 2009 by ASN Staff

The U.S. Under-18 Women’s National Team will hold its first training camp of the year from April 4-11 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. The U.S. U-17 Women’s National Team will also be at The HDC during that week in April. The two squads will scrimmage each other once during the week. The U-18s, under the guidance of head coach Dave Chesler, will also scrimmage local college sides.

The 24-player roster features 16 players born in 1992 and eight players born in 1991. All the players in camp are eligible for the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Germany, where the age cutoff is Jan. 1, 1990, and all are working towards call-ups to the U.S. U-20s. Three players in camp played significant roles for the USA at the 2008 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in midfielders Elizabeth Eddy and Julia Roberts and forward Samantha Johnson.
