U-17 and U-18 WNT to Hold Concurrent Training Camps

CHICAGO (Oct. 16, 2017) – The U.S. Under-17 Women’s National Team and the U.S. Under-18 Women’s National Team will hold concurrent training camps at the Elite Athlete Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif., from Oct. 21-28.

U.S. U-18 WNT head coach Jaime Frias has named 28 players for his camp, with 22 players born in 2000 and six in 1999. U.S. U-17 WNT head coach Mark Carr has also called up 28 players, 25 born in 2001 and three born in 2002.

The U-17s have been quite active this year as they prepare for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in 2018. The squad has played tournaments in Slovenia/Italy and China, while defeating England in two August games in Portland, Oregon by a 12-3 aggregate score. The U-17s have lost just one of nine international games this year, a wild back-and-forth 5-4 setback against China in Weifang this July.

Three players – defender Kate Wiesner, midfielder Astrid Wheeler and forward Jordan Canniff -- who recently traveled with the U.S. U-19 WNT to China to gain some increased international experience against U-20 Women’s National Teams, return to their age group for this camp. Wiesner, Canniff and defender Kennedy Wesley all played at the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan.

This group of U-17 players is gearing up for their attempt to qualify for the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup that will be staged in Uruguay. The age cutoff for that tournament is players born on or after January 1, 2001. The top three teams at next year’s CONCACAF U-17 Championship will qualify for the World Cup.
