[U.S. UNDER-18 WOMEN]The U.S. under-18 women’s national team consisting of 26 players, the majority born in 1994 with several born in 1993 and 1992, will hold its final training camp of the year Dec. 11-18 in Sunrise, Fla.
U.S. Soccer women’s technical director April Heinrichs will be in charge of the camp. The ‘94s will most likely form the core of the team that will compete to attend the 2014 Under-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada, but all are still age-eligible for the team that will attempt to qualify for the 2012 U-20 Women’s World Cup in Uzbekistan.
Except for goalie Jami Kranich (Villanova), all played are listed as youth club players.
