U14 GIRLS' NAT'L TEAM HEADS TO COLORADO

Lonestar Soccer Club is very pleased and proud to announce that Jillian Martinez (02G ECNL) and Abby Allen (02G ECNL) have been invited into the U.S. Soccer Under-14 Girls' National Team Training Camp in Ft Collins, Colorado from July 9-16.  The U.S. Under-14 Girls’ National Team head coach April Kater has called up 36 players for the second training camp of the year for this age group.   

 

Congratulations to the girls and best of luck!

 

U14 Girls’ YNT Overview

The majority of the players on the roster were born in 2002, with eight born in 2003 and one in 2004. The U.S U-14 GNT did not have programming last year as players born in odd years start with two years in the U-15 Girls’ National Team program.

For this cycle, with the majority of players born in an even year, which are the age-cut-off years for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, the players follow the path of one year as U-14s and then move to the Under-16 GNT (2 years), Under-18 WNT (2 years) and Under-20 WNT (2 years). These players are on a path that for some may lead to the 2022 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.

"Lonestar Soccer Club is thrilled for Abby and Jillian for their invitations to the U14 Youth National Team camp.  I want to congratulate the young ladies and wish them the best of luck at camp.  We are very proud of you, well done."  

- Don Cameron, Lonestar SC Executive Director of Soccer

 

"I couldn't be more excited for Jillian and Abby.  Years of hard work, dedication, sacrifice and training has lead to this opportunity.  Every accomplishment starts with a decision to try.  Congrats and good luck."    

- Wes Schevers, Lonestar SC Girls National League Program Director
