East Meadow SC Players Selected For 2nd U.S. Under-14 Girls’ National Team Camp
U-14 GNT Heads to Colorado for 36-Player Camp
U-14 NDPJul 1, 2016
CHICAGO (July 1, 2016) -- U.S. Under-14 Girls’ National Team head coach April Kater has called up 36 players for the second training camp of the year for this age group. The camp will run from July 9-16 in Ft. Collins, Colorado.

For this cycle, with the majority of players born in an even year, which are the age-cut-off years for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, the players follow the path of one year as U-14s and then move to the Under-16 GNT (2 years), Under-18 WNT (2 years) and Under-20 WNT (2 years). These players are on a path that for some may lead to the 2022 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.
