Twenty-one of the players joining were born in 1994, with one in 1993 and two in 1995. The players will also get to attend the inaugural WPS Championship Game that will be held at The HDC on Aug. 22.
The players in this camp are all age-eligible for the 2010 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Trinidad & Tobago, which has an age cut-off of players born on or after Jan. 1, 1993. The 2008 U.S. U-17 Women’s World Cup Team had several players who were two years younger than the age cut-off year. One player in this camp – 5-foot-8 midfielder Morgan Andrews
– also participated in the recently completed U.S. U-14 I.D. Camp in Pomona, Calif.
