Canada announces U-18 camp and roster

Posted on 26 November 2010 in ↳ Women's EXCEL U-18 to U-20

Canada has announced it will host a women's U-18 camp this 29 November to 8 December in São Paulo, Brazil. The U-18 camp will run alongside the national A camp that starts on the same day, but continues from 9-20 December for the four-team Torneio Internacional Cidade de São Paulo.

Coach Carolina Morace has selected 22 players for this camp. The U-18 squad features players born 1992 or later, so it is in fact the very age group that will participate in the next CONCACAF Women's Under-20 Championship in 2012.

"It is good to bring this group together early and we hope to bring them together more often in 2011," said Morace.

Eight players are making their debut at this age group, albeit three of those eight have trained with Morace at the national A level (Rachelle Beanlands, Sabrina D'Angelo and Diamond Simpson). Six of those eight players represented Canada at the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup Trinidad and Tobago 2010 (Beanlands, D'Angelo, Simpson, Caroline Beaulne, Vanessa Kovacs and Nicole Setterlund) while two are brand new to the Canadian program (Léa Chastenay-Joseph and Marie Lawrence Ouellet).

Also included in this camp are three players that played for Morace at the 2010 CONCACAF Women's Under-20 Championship. They are all young enough to return to the U-20 championship in 2012.

Canada, whose title sponsor is Winners, will train daily in São Paulo, Brazil under the direction of Morace and staff. Each day, a few U-18 players will be called into national A squad to train with the full team.
