U.S. under-20 women's national team coach Jillian Ellis will bring 24 players to a training camp beginning Saturday at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

The roster includes eight players who were a part of the U-17 Women's World Cup team that took second place in New Zealand last year. They include captains Amber Brooks and Cloee Colohan, as well as Kristie Mewis, who won the Bronze Ball as the third best player in the tournament, forward Courtney Verloo who scored four times in New Zealand, and Taylor Vancil, who won the Golden Glove as the top keeper during the competition.

Eight players are currently freshman in college. Players eligible for the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, which will be held in Germany. Dates and venues for CONCACAF qualifying have yet to be set.
