[NTC CAMP] With Concacaf qualifying scheduled for January, the U.S. under-20 women's national team is set for a busy final five weeks of the year, beginning with a training camp that opens Sunday at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.
Players still involved in the NCAA Tournament will be missing from the camp. It will serve as a bridge camp to the mid-December camp in Florida that will be the final preparation for the team before the Concacaf Women’s U-20 Championship in the Cayman Islands in January.
U.S. head coach Michelle French has currently named 16 players and will likely add more players before camp begins. Two players are still in high school: goalkeeper Darien Dunham and midfielder Andi Sullivan.
