The U.S. Under-15 Girls’ National Team will open its 2013 programming with a training camp at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif., from Feb. 24-March 2.
U.S. U-15 GNT head coach Damon Nahas has called up 24 players, 23 born in 1998 and one born in 1999, for the event that will be the first of at least four training camps this year for this age group. Nahas will be joined by U.S. Soccer Development Director Jill Ellis at the camp which features a group of players who are age-eligible for the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup. That tournament has an age cut-off date of players born on or after Jan. 1, 1997, so the top players in this age group may have the chance to break into that squad.
