    This national camp will be during the last week of 8th grade school year for some, the week before the last for others. US Soccer's Developmental Academy had all the girls teams U15 and above in a week-long tournament in what was the the last full school week in December - also the last full week of a school semester in many areas.
    1. What are the people at US Soccer thinking? 
    2. Who will dare to push back about this disregard of the academic interests of these athletes?
