Sports Envoy Program Continues in April With Clinics in Morocco

CHICAGO (April 20, 2012) – U.S. Soccer and the U.S. Department of State will send a former coach and players to Morocco from April 22-28 as part of the Sports Envoy program.

Former U.S. Women’s National Team midfielder Angela Hucles and defender Marian Dalmy will join former WNT assistant coach Lesle Gallimore for the clinics in Morocco. While in the North African nation, the envoys will work with 40 young female coaches from Morocco, as well as two coaches each from Tunisia and Libya. 

The coaches attending the clinics will learn about technical soccer skills and the psychology of coaching. They will then work with the Sports Envoys to conduct soccer clinics with local female soccer players and will also engage in discussions about the importance of women’s sports in light of the 40th anniversary of Title IX.

The Sports Envoy program is part of SportsUnited’s Empowering Women and Girls through Sport Initiative. Research has shown a strong connection between girls’ participation in sports and pursuing a higher level of education, which then leads to more women in leadership roles. Through the international program, U.S. Soccer seeks to promote sports and spark dialogue with children from around the world.

U.S. Soccer has been involved with Sports Envoy since 2006 and has sent former players and coaches to countries across South America, Asia and Africa. Participants include Marcelo Balboa, Amanda Cromwell, Lorrie Fair, Linda Hamilton, Jay Miller and Tony Sanneh. This will be the first envoy for Hucles, Dalmy and Gallimore.

Sports Envoy Program Continues in 2012 with Series of Trips in Spring

CHICAGO (Feb. 17, 2012) – The Sports Envoy program will continue in 2012, with a series of trips planned in the spring. U.S. Soccer, in conjunction with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, will hold Sports Envoys from February to April in Malaysia, Algeria, Argentina, Venezuela and Morocco.

The Sports Envoy program is part of SportsUnited’s Empowering Women and Girls through Sport Initiative. Research has shown a strong connection between girls’ participation in sports and pursuing a higher level of education, which then leads to more women in leadership roles. Through the international program, U.S. Soccer seeks to promote sports and spark dialogue with children from around the world.

Former U.S. National Team players, coaches and administrators travel on the Sports Envoy trips to conduct soccer clinics for youth players, with a special focus on reaching out to girls, as well as clinics and discussions for coaches and administrators.

The first Sports Envoy of the year will be in February, when defenders Danielle Slaton and Tony Sanneh head to Malaysia, with former WNT General Manager Cheryl Bailey joining as the first Sports Administrator to focus on girls’ sports program administration.

WNT defenders Kate Markgraf and Linda Hamilton will travel to Algeria in March. In the same month, defender Amanda Cromwell and former WNT coach Lauren Gregg will conduct an Envoy in Argentina, while goalkeeper Siri Mullinix and defender Lorrie Fair go to Venezuela.

Midfielder Angela Hucles, defender Marian Dalmy and Washington head coach Leslie Gallimore will hold Envoy programs in Morocco in April.

U.S. Soccer has been involved with Sports Envoy since 2006 and has sent former players and coaches to countries across South America, Asia and Africa. Cromwell, Fair, Hamilton, Sanneh and Slaton have all participated in the program on past trips.

Sundhage Calls 25 Players to Training Camp as U.S. WNT Begins 2009 at The Home Depot Center

CHICAGO (Jan. 9, 2009) – U.S. Women’s National Team head coach Pia Sundhage has called in 25 players for a 17-day training camp that will kick off the team’s 2009 activity. The U.S. team will convene at U.S. Soccer’s National Training Center at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., from Jan. 20-Feb. 4 in preparation for the annual Algarve Cup that will be held from March 4-11 in southern Portugal.

The roster is a combination of experience and young players looking to establish themselves in the player pool. The majority of the players are veterans of the USA’s 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup Team and 2008 Olympic Team, led by team captain Christie Rampone who has 211 career caps, 2008 U.S. Soccer Female Athlete of the Year Carli Lloyd, as well as two of the USA’s top scorers last year in midfielders Heather O’Reilly and Lindsay Tarpley. Sundhage has called in two goalkeepers in Hope Solo and Nicole Barnhart.

The roster also includes several players looking to rebound from major injuries, most notably forward Abby Wambach, who will be seeing her first national team action since suffering a broken leg against Brazil on July 16, 2008, in the final match before the Olympic Games.

Due to forwards Amy Rodriguez and Lauren Cheney – two of the youngest players on the USA’s Olympic gold medal team – missing most of the USA’s post-Olympic Achieve Your Gold Tour due to commitments to their college teams, Natasha Kai missing the final two matches due to illness and of course Wambach’s ongoing rehabilitation, the U.S. team had a dearth of forwards to call on after the Olympics. With all four of those players back in camp, combined with Angela Hucles’ versatility in playing midfield or forward, the first call-up since 2006 for former University of Portland star Megan Rapinoe, and the switch for Tina Ellertson from defender to forward, the USA will have a large group of strikers competing for Algarve Cup roster spots.

Rapinoe was one of the USA’s best players at the 2004 FIFA U-19 Women’s World Cup in Thailand and was on her way to breaking into the senior side in 2006, playing in four matches and scoring twice, but major knee injuries in successive college seasons (2006 and 2007) derailed her international career. She finally got healthy this season, scoring five goals with 13 assists for the Pilots while playing mostly attacking midfielder and during the camp will see her first WNT action in over two years.

Sundhage has called in several other young players who all have extensive youth national team experience as well as some training camp time with the full National Team. Midfielder Angie Wonzuk and defenders Jill Oakes and Kendall Fletcher, all members of the U.S. team that won the inaugural 2002 FIFA U-19 Women’s World Cup, get call-backs to the National Team after extended absences. Oakes earned her one cap at the Algarve Cup in 2005 while Woznuk has six caps and one goal, scoring against Finland at the Four Nations Tournament in January of 2008. Fletcher, who along with Oakes helped the Pali Blues to an undefeated season and the W-League title last summer, is the only uncapped player on the training camp roster.

Olympic gold medal winning midfielder Tobin Heath, the youngest player in camp at age 20, also returns to the squad after missing all of the Achieve Your Gold matches. Sundhage has also called in Tina DiMartino, one of the top players in college soccer during the 2008 season for UCLA. DiMartino, who has one cap for the senior team, was a member of the U.S. squad at the 2006 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup and the last two the Nordic Cup title teams for the U.S. U-23 Women’s National Team.

After the completion of the camp, Sundhage will choose 18 players to make the annual pilgrimage to Portugal for the always competitive Algarve Cup, where the USA will face Denmark, Norway and Iceland in first round play. Germany, Sweden, Finland and China fill out the other group. It will be the 14th trip to the prestigious tournament for the U.S. WNT.

U.S. defender Kate Markgraf, a veteran of six world championships for the USA, will not be joining the U.S. team in the near future as she is pregnant for the second time. Markgraf had a son in the summer of 2006.

U.S. WNT Training Camp Update

U.S. Women’s National Team Training Camp Update
Carson, Calif.
December 10, 2007


PIA ERA BEGINS
The U.S. Women’s National Team hit the field on the evening of Saturday, Dec. 8 for the first practice session of a five-day mini-camp, the first training under new head coach Pia Sundhage, who addressed the team for the first time in a meeting prior to departure to The Home Depot Center. On a cold, wet and windy night, the first practice under Sundhage was a 90-minute training, as the players got their legs back under them after the month layoff since the end of the Women’s World Cup and the three-match post-WWC tour vs. Mexico. After a long year in 2007 that included 24 matches and a third-place finish at the 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the team was set to regroup in January in preparation for the Four Nations Tournament in January, but Sundhage’s hiring on Nov. 13 necessitated the mini-camp, giving both coach and players a valuable opportunity to get to know each other before jumping into a major competition at the beginning of 2008.

2008 SCHEDULE STARTING TO TAKE SHAPE
While much of the 2008 schedule for the U.S. women is still to be determined as head coach Pia Sundhage continues to formulate her plans, this much is known. The U.S. team will play in three major tournaments in the first four months of the year, starting in January at the annual Four Nations tournament in China. The game schedule, venues and opponents have yet to be finalized (although with U.S. and China, you have half the field), but the U.S. team will enter training camp in early January at The Home Depot Center before leaving for China a little more than a week into the new year. The U.S. team will also once again enter the Algarve Cup in Portugal in mid-March with the final schedule still to be determined. The most important tournament, however, will take place in April in Chihuahua, Mexico, as the USA is one of six teams entering the CONCACAF Final Women’s Olympic Qualifying Tournament being held from April 2-13. Should all go well in Mexico, the U.S. team will likely have another springtime Residency Training Camp at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., as well as a slate of domestic games, and possibly a foreign tour.

BEIJING VIA MEXICO

The 2008 CONCACAF Women's Olympic Final Round qualifying tournament will be held April 2-13 at the Estadio Olimpico Universitario in the city of Chihuahua, the capital of the northern state of Chihuahua, Mexico. The six-team tournament will determine the two CONCACAF countries that will participate in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. The six participating teams include the defending Olympic champion USA along with Canada and Mexico from the North Zone, all of which received byes into the Final Round. Joining them will be Costa Rica, which recently qualified from the Central American Zone, and two teams from the Caribbean in Trinidad & Tobago and Jamaica. For the first time, the Olympic Women’s Soccer Tournament will feature 12 teams, up from 10 in 2004 and eight for both 2000 and 1996. Seven of the 12 teams for Beijing are already set. By virtue of their finish at the 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup, Germany and Norway will represent Europe. Sweden recently won a two-game playoff with Denmark and will be the third European entrant. Japan and North Korea have qualified from Asia, and China has an automatic berth as host. Argentina has qualified from South America, forcing Brazil into a playoff against the second place finisher from Africa. Qualifying in Africa is on-going with Ghana and Nigeria in position to battle for the lone automatic berth. One team will also qualify from Oceania.


U-20s MOVING ON UP
The U.S. training camp roster features seven players culled right from the college ranks for this camp. It was a bittersweet call-up for the septet, all of whom were available for the training camp because their college teams were knocked out of the NCAA Playoffs before the NCAA Final Four. All seven have played with the U.S. U-19s or U-20s, but just three are capped with the full team, led by midfielder Yael Averbuch who has played just two games for the WNT.

Yael Averbuch, Midfielder
Played for the USA at the 2004 FIFA U-19 Women’s World Championship in Thailand. Scored six goals with six assists for UNC as a junior this fall. Two caps came over 50 minutes of action at the 2007 Four Nations tournament in China.

Rachel Buehler, Defender
Played for the USA at the 2002 FIFA U-19 Women’s World Championship in Canada, helping the USA to the title, and at the 2004 FIFA U-19 Women’s World Championship in Thailand. Finished her career at Stanford this fall. Played in 81 games in her college career, starting every game over the past three seasons. Uncapped at the senior level, but did train with the USA during Residency Camp this year.

Michelle Enyeart, Forward
A key member of the USA’s current U-20 pool, she played for the USA at the Pan American games in Rio de Janeiro last summer. Led the Portland Pilots in scoring during her sophomore year this fall with 12 goals and 15 assists. Uncapped at the senior level.

Tobin Heath, Midfielder
Played for the USA at the 2006 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Championship in Russia, mostly in the back. Had two goals and five assists for the Tar Heels this season as a sophomore. Uncapped at the senior level, she is age-eligible for the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Chile.

Casey Nogueira, Forward
Played for the USA at the 2006 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Championship in Russia. Had 13 goals and three assists for the Tar Heels this season as a sophomore, leading the team. Has one cap at the senior level, earned at the Four Nations Tournament in China last January, and she is age-eligible for the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Chile.

Nikki Washington, Midfielder
A member of the U.S. U-20 Women’s National Team player pool, she had seven goals with seven assists for the Tar Heels last season, including the winning goal in the ACC championship game. Uncapped at the senior level.

Angie Woznuk, Midfielder
Played for the USA at the 2002 FIFA U-19 Women’s World Championship in Canada, helping the USA to the title, and at the 2004 FIFA U-19 Women’s World Championship in Thailand, where she was one of the best players in the tournament, winning the Silver Ball as the second most-valuable player and the Bronze Boot as the tournament’s third-leading scorer. Finished her career at Portland this fall, scoring nine goals with seven assists. Has one cap at the senior level, earned in 2005 against Iceland.

WHERE THEY ARE, NOW
Sixteen of the 21 members of the USA’s 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup Team are at mini-camp, but where are the other five? Read below for answers.

Rest, Please
Kristine Lilly just needs some rest, which she has earned after 340 caps, 20 years on the National Team and five Women’s World Cups. The U.S. captain has also yet to decide if she will attempt a run to the 2008 Olympics.

Taking a Breather
Defender Stephanie Lopez went from an intense Residency Training Camp to an even more intense starting role at the 2007 Women’s World Cup and then straight into an emotional senior season at the University of Portland. The 21-year-old needs a breather. And oh yeah, she’s getting married next weekend.

In Africa
Midfielder Angela Hucles is in Africa during humanitarian work.

Bun in the Oven
Defender Tina Ellertson is pregnant with her second child, but plans to return to action following the birth. She’s due in April.

Bear Time
Midfielder Marci Jobson has retired from international play. She’s also the new head women’s soccer coach for the Baylor University Bears, leaving Northern Illinois, where she was the head coach for three seasons.



U.S. WNT To Have First Training Camp Under New Head Coach Pia Sundhage

CHICAGO (December 4, 2007) – The U.S. Women’s National Team will hold its last training camp of 2007, and first under new head coach Pia Sundhage, from Dec. 8-12 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

Sundhage will bring in 24 players for the mini-camp designed to give her a quick look at the core of the U.S. team, plus a handful of young players just coming off the college season, before the squad regroups in early January to prepare for the Four Nations Tournament in China.

The camp is basically the beginning of the run to the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, with the USA preparing for the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Final Round qualifying tournament, being held April 2-13 in Chihuahua, Mexico. Two countries from the six-team tournament will advance to China.

“It’s a short camp, but it will be valuable time spent together as a team and a unique moment for me to have a chance to work with the best players in the United States for the first time,” said Sundhage. “It will give us the chance to get to know them as players a little bit more, they’ll get the chance to learn my style and I’ll also get the chance to get to know them off the field. It will be a good start to something new.”

The mini-camp roster features 16 players from the 2007 U.S. Womens’ World Cup Team, along with seven players who recently finished their collegiate seasons. Defender Heather Mitts has regained her fitness and makes a return to the squad after suffering an ACL tear on May 12, 2007, which required surgery and caused her to miss out on the Women’s World Cup in China.

Of the seven players coming in from the college ranks, all have considerable youth National Team experience, with five (Yael Averbuch, Rachel Buehler, Tobin Heath, Casey Nogueira and Angie Woznuk) having represented the USA at a FIFA youth world championship while the other two (Michelle Enyeart and Nikki Washington) are in the running for a spot on the U.S. U-20 team that will attempt to qualify for the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.

Of the seven collegians, four come from the University of North Carolina, two from the University of Portland and one from Stanford. Buehler and Woznuk, both of whom have trained with the full National Team during Residency Training Camps, are the only two seniors, having finished their college eligibility with their school’s runs in the NCAA playoffs.
