The U.S. Under-15 Girls’ National Team under the direction head coach Damon Nahas will come together from June 3-10 for a training camp at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.
Nahas has called up 24 players, almost all born in 1997 with a few born in 1998, for the event that will feature scrimmages against Cal-South Girls’ ODP teams on June 5 and June 9 with both kicking off at 6:30 p.m. PT.
This group of players will likely form the core of the player pool that will attempt to qualify for the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup to be held in Costa Rica.
