U.S. women's national team head coach Tony DiCicco has named the first 13 women who will make up the 26-player residency camp beginning in early January, 1999 in Orlando, Fla. at the Lake Sylvan Park training facility. Of the 13 players named, 11 are veterans of the 1996 Olympic gold medalists, including all-time scoring leader Mia Hamm and all-time caps leader Kristine Lilly. In addition, DiCicco named defenders Christie Pearce and Kate Sobrero. "This is the core group of players that over the past two years have established themselves as deserving of a spot in residency camp," said DiCicco. "The majority of these players have won a Women's World Cup, an Olympics, or both, and will carry us through to our goals in 1999." The U.S. team will be based in its camp for five months as they engage in preparation for Women's World Cup '99. DiCicco will name the remaining 13 players in the near future. In addition to the 26 residents, DiCicco will also call in several "floaters" for one-to-two week trials during the preparation. Here are the 13 players invited to the residency camp:
