The U.S. under-17 girls national team continues preparations for next month's Concacaf Championship with a training camp that begins Friday in Jersey City, N.J. U.S. head coach Kazbek Tambi has called in 26 players for the camp at Jersey City University. He will select 21 for the Concacaf tournament. The U.S. roster is mostly made up of players born in 1991 and 1992, but Tambi has called in three 1993s in defenders Abby Dalhkemper and Morgan Brian and midfielder Sydney Payne.

The USA will play Costa Rica (July 17), El Salvador (July 19) and host T&T (July 21) in group play. The top two teams in each of the two groups advance to the semifinals, with the semifinal winners earning berths to the 2008 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup Oct. 28-Nov. 16 in Trinidad. The winner of the third-place match will earn CONCACAF's third ticket to New Zealand.

The winner of the CONCACAF qualifying tournament was drawn into Group C as the seeded team along with Japan, France and Paraguay at the U-17 World Cup draw held Sunday in Wellington.
