The club is excited to announce that Sarah Piper (U17 ECNL) will be brought into the U18 Women’s National Team Training Center from April 15-22 in Chula Vista, California. U.S. Soccer Development Coach Jaime Frias will run the camp and has called up 24 players, all born in 2000. This group of players is at the start of a two-year cycle as U-18s before transitioning to U-20s in 2019 and will form the core of the group that will eventually attempt to qualify for the 2020 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.
“It’s great news for Sarah and the club that she has been brought back into the national team environment. Our new relationship with US Soccer as part of the Development Academy will ensure more of our players get the same opportunities. We are very proud of Sara and her accomplishments.” Nick O’Shea, Director of Coaching – ECNL.
