COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Following a training camp two weekends ago, the Junior High Performance Staff has established the U.S. U-16 and Rise Women’s National Team rosters that will compete against Canada, in two separate series in different countries. Originally set to take place in the middle of April, these matches have been shifted to May where each squad will play a four-game series against their Canada counterpart.
The U-16 USWNT will travel to play Canada’s U-16 Team at Tamanawis Park in Surrey and Rutledge Field in West Vancouver, British Columbia.
“I’m really proud of the entire U-16 squad for their growth and understanding they showed this weekend,” said Katie Bam, U-16 USWNT Head Coach. “We nailed down some important tactics that we will be able to showcase and continue to develop throughout the Canada series. We’re looking forward to these athletes getting to play in their first international competition wearing the red, white and blue.”
