    Mini-camp for U14 girls.?????....They would be much better off and more productive towards their development by  staying at home and employing the same amount of time used at mini-camp kicking/passing/trapping a ball  with their WEAK FOOT against a wall or with a teammate....

    Not sure what makes you think that. This is an opportunity to train with the "best" players in your region. It's an invaluable experience that shows you the level you need to attain/retain if you want to be an elite player. At the same age, I went to something like this (ODP Regional Camp) and it was eye-opening: I hadn't realized how good I was relative to my peers, but I also hadn't realized how much better some players my age really were. I also learned from the players who weren't selected for advancement, but later played on our WC teams, how subjective scouting really can be, especially at this age - and that allowed me to stay true to  my own development path and not deviate just to satisfy some coach I felt was important at that
    moment in time.

    Damon, At 13, better players? All these players have so many short comings at this stager of their development that I wouldn't even worry about whose is better.How many of those girls could even play using either feet  I will lay money that you won't even find one. As a matter fact those better players are just as handicapped technically, and if some are better it has to do more with athletic abilities which is  basically about par for women soccer..
    Playing against the best, at the age of 13, that's all relative. Try watching women's college soccer who are not only some years older but also better and more experienced than a 13 year old, even there is nothing to write home about....
