CARSON, Calif. (March 12, 2011) -- The U.S. Under-15 Girls’ National Team will come together from March 20-27 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., for its first training camp of the year under the direction of Jill Ellis. Twenty-four players have been called up, all born in 1996, and the squad will play matches against the Cal-South ’95 Girls’ State Team (March 23) and the Cal-South ’94 Girls’ State Team (March 26). The U-15 event will be held concurrently with a U.S. U-17 Women’s National Team training camp.
