U-15 and U-14 GNT Will Hold Concurrent Camp at U.S. Soccer NTC

CHICAGO (September 5, 2017) – The U.S. Under-15 Girls’ National Team and the U.S Under-14 Girls’ National Team will hold concurrent training camps from Sept. 10-17 at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center in Carson, Calif.

U.S. U-15 GNT head coach Tracey Kevins has called up 24 players, all born in 2003, for what will be her first camp at the helm of this age group.

U.S. U-14 GNT head coach April Kater has called up 24 players, all born in 2004. This cycle for the U.S. U-14 GNT would generally begin in early 2018, but this camp gives next year’s U-14s a head start. For all but the few players who have been called into U-15 GNT training camps, this will be the first experience in a National Team training camp environment.

The teams will scrimmage against each other during the week.

This group of U-15 players is in the first year of a two-year cycle before transitioning to U-17s in 2019, when they will form the core of the team that will attempt to qualify for the 2020 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.
