U.S. U-14 Girls' National Development Program ID Camp Underway in Portland
The annual U.S. U-14 Girl’s National Team Identification Camp began on July 31 and will run through August 6 at the University of Portland. The venue for the camp moves to the northwest after being held in Pomona, Calif., for the past four summers. The camp features 100 of the top young female players in the country, the majority in born in 1996 with a few in 1997, as each of the four regions – West, North, South and East – is represented by 25 players. These players are all age-eligible for the 2012 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup although the majority of that roster is likely to be made up of players born in 1995. Mike Dickey and his coaching staff will oversee a week of training and games and then will pick 36 players for a U-14 Girls’ National Team training camp being held from September 18-25 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. Many top players who have gone on to accomplish big things for the U.S. youth and full National Teams have come through the I.D. camp, including Heather O’Reilly (1999), Lindsey Tarpley (1999), Stephanie Cox (2000), Lauren Cheney (2001), Amy Rodriguez (2001), Tobin Heath (2002), Amber Brooks (2005) and Kristie Mewis (2005). This is the 12th year of the U-14 Girls’ I.D. camp which started in 1999.
