[U.S. U-15 GIRLS NATIONAL TEAM] Coach Damon Nahas will hold the first camp of the year for the U-15 girls, who are age-eligible for the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup.
Of the 24 players, 23 were born in 1998 and in 1999. Nahas will be joined by U.S. Soccer Development Director Jill Ellis at the camp in Chula Vista, Calif., from Feb. 24-March 2.
The cut-off date for the next U-17 World Cup is Jan. 1, 1997, so the top players in this age group may have the chance to break into that squad.
