After two international trips and two domestic camps so far this year, the U.S. Under-18 Women’s National Team heads to San Diego for a training camp at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif., running from Sept. 3-10.

U.S. Soccer Women’s Technical Director April Heinrichs has called up a 26-player roster that features 25 youth club players and one college player in goalkeeper Gabrielle Kouzelos from Louisville. The roster features nine players born in 1999 – which is the age cut-off year for this year’s 2016 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup – with the rest born in 1998. U.S. U-17 WNT head coach B.J. Snow named his World Cup roster last week.

The U-18s will drive up to Long Beach to face Beach FC Women of the WPSL on Friday, Sept. 9, at Long Beach State with a kickoff at 2 p.m. PT.

The goal for this age group is to ultimately qualify for the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup which will be held in France.
