The U.S. Under-18 Women’s National Team will hold a training camp at The Home Depot Center from Oct. 23-30 that will run concurrently with a U.S. Under-17 Women’s National Team event. U.S. Soccer Women’s Technical Director April Heinrichs has called up 30 players, 25 of them born in 1994 with five born in 1993. While all of these players are age-eligible for the U.S. team that will attempt to qualify for the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Azerbaijan (which has an age cut-off of players born on or after Jan. 1, 1992), this group will more likely form the core of the team that will try to compete for a spot in the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada. That tournament has an age cut-off of players born on or after Jan. 1, 1994.
