    How come there are almost no Hispanic girls ?

    Hispanic girls aren't usually big enough for the coaches that are lower down in the funnel, so Montoya probably doesn't get to see them.

    @Amos, our current youth system favors big girls with their physicality and athleticism over more skilled-based players (which includes Latinas as well as other groups, smaller white, asian etc.) given the USSF's traditional English-style of play emphasis on "kick and run" long-ball. Given the emergence of skill-based nations such as Japan and France, our approach will need to change or we will suffer the consequences.

    The roster includes 5 players from Colorado, all from the same club. 4 from Utah. 3 from North Carolina, all from the same club. Are these camps about which clubs get organized to send their players?

    All across the USA high schools and colleges are beginning practice and team selection for the fall season. Why would you chose this time for a U15 & U17 national camp? Even though the players involved are a lock for their respective teams I'm sure all of their coaches would love to have them at practice.

    Seems like a ridiculous list. The current WNT has 6 from NJ/NY, and this camp has none? 5 from the same club? I guess if you want to be noticed, like the men, girls likely need to play elsewhere or play college ball first. Joe M: kids at this level skip high school Fall soccer (assuming that's when it is for their state).
