The U.S. Under-16 Girl’s National Team will have its first camp of 2006 from Jan. 21-27 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. It will be the first training camp for head coach Kazbek Tambi, who has called in 24 players and may add one or two more before the beginning of camp.
Many of the players were in training camps with the U.S. U-15 Girl’s National Team last year. The U-16s will be in camp at the same time as the U.S. U-15s, and the two youngest U.S. youth national teams will scrimmage each other on Tuesday morning, January 24 at 9:30 a.m.
