U.S. under-17 women's national team roster

[CONCACAF UNDER-17 WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP] U.S. under-17 women's national team head coach B.J. Snow named 19 of the 20 players he will take for the 2013 Concacaf U-17 Women's Championship to be held Oct. 30-Nov. 9 in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

The U.S. team will have one more camp before departing for qualifying as Snow will bring the team together for a camp Oct. 13-19 in Lakewood Ranch, Fla.

Concacaf member Costa Rica will host the 2014 Under-17 Women's World Cup, so only the Concacaf U-17 finalists will qualify. Usually, three teams advance.

Snow, who left UCLA to become the first full-time head coach for this age group last January, named his squad after an eight-day training camp in Lakewood Ranch but still has one spot remaining on the 20-player roster for a second goalie. Several of the top goalkeepers in the U-17 player pool are currently coping with injuries.

"We have worked very hard since January to navigate through the selection process and identify a group of individuals to represent our country for World Cup qualifying," said Snow. "At the U-17 level, our job is to identify players across the nation who have the qualities to help us achieve our short term goals of qualifying for the World Cup and who also have the potential to move through our National Team system, with the ultimate goal of playing for our first team one day. We feel that this group of players is a great representation of the future of U.S. Soccer."

Forwards Mallory Pugh and Madison Haley, the daughter of former NFL Pro Bowler Charles Haley, have combined to score 10 international goals this year. The U-17s have played seven international matches this year, compiling a 4-1-2 record while scoring 21 goals and allowing six.

The squad includes two players born in 1999: Civana Kuhlmann and Frankie Tagliaferri.

U.S. U-17 Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (1) : Lauren Rood (Washington Timbers; Camas, Wash.)
DEFENDERS (7): Gabriella Carreiro (FC Stars of Mass; Upton, Mass.), Mia Gyau (Bethesda Lions; Silver Springs, Md.), Natalie Jacobs (Slammers FC; Coto de Caza, Calif.), Ellie Jean (Oakwood SC; Coventry, Conn.), Tegan McGrady (MVLA SC; San Jose, Calif.), Zoe Morse (Michigan Hawks; East Lansing, Mich.), Taylor Otto (CASL; Apex, N.C.)
MIDFIELDERS (5): Dorian Bailey (Sporting BVSC; Mission, Ks.), Marley Canales (San Diego Surf; San Diego, Calif.), Taylor Racioppi (PDA Clash; Ocean Township, N.J.), Anika Rodriguez (So Cal Blues; Torrance, Calif.), Frankie Tagliaferri (PDA; Colts Neck, N.J.)
FORWARDS (6): Madison Haley (Dallas Texans; Dallas, Texas), Kelcie Hedge (Washington Premier; Post Falls, Idaho), Civana Kuhlmann (Colorado Rush; Parker, Colo.), Mallory Pugh (Real Colorado; Highlands Ranch, Colo.), Zoe Redei (Eclipse Select; Highland Park, Ill.), Maddy Schultz (Northwest Nationals; Edmonds, Wash.)
