US Youth Soccer is proud to announce the attendees and schedule for the 2016 US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program Girls National Training Camp, taking place Jan. 22-25 at Reach 11 Sports Complex in Phoenix, Ariz. More than 200 top athletes have been selected from the 2001, 2002 age groups to represent each of the four US Youth Soccer Regions.
Training will be led by U.S. Soccer Staff Coach and Marantha Baptist University Coach, Jeff Pill, who has over 40 years of experience in the sport and has worked with the Women’s National Teams at both the youth and senior levels. Numerous college coaches are set to attend the National Training Camp throughout the week, as well as April Kater, the Head Development Coach for U.S. Soccer Women's Youth National Teams, and other U.S. Soccer scouts.
The Girls National Training Camp focuses on highlighting players’ individual talents as well as providing them with new tools and ideas through challenging daytime training and small-sided games. Players will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the nation’s top coaches to enhance their problem solving skills within the game, and further their technical and tactical abilities.
