Morace’s first camp underway in California

Canada is off to a good start in its first training camp under newly-appointed head coach Carolina Morace. The team is currently training in Los Angeles, CA, its first camp since last year’s Women’s Olympic Football Tournament in Beijing, China. The team begins a new era next month when it takes part in the 2009 Cyprus Cup under coach Morace.



“We are in the initial stages of training and introducing our new methodology of playing,” said Morace. “The players are excited, enthusiastic and they are responding well to the new training. The players have not played for many months, so we are working to form a team that will be looking to win.”

Canada is the defending Cyprus Cup champion from last year’s event in March 2008. This time around, Canada faces New Zealand (5 March), Netherlands (7 March) and Russia (10 March) in group action. The final is set for 12 March against the top team from the opposite group (France, England, South Africa or Scotland).



Canada, whose title sponsor is Winners and presenting partner is Teck, will continue to train through 18 February. After a short break, the team will regroup in Rome in the days before the Cyprus Cup tournament begins.
