Eighteen young soccer players will be Canadian pioneers as the first ever members of Canada’s Women’s U-15 Team that will challenge at the inaugural CONCACAF Girls’ Under-15 Championship in the Cayman Islands. And eight of those, hail from Ontario.
Under the direction of Head Coach Bev Priestman, Canada has been placed in Group D in the 16-team competition alongside Haiti, Cuba, and Puerto Rico.
“This is the first development contact with this group of players outside of a wider identification camp,” said Priestman, who guided Canada’s Women’s U-17 Team to a quarterfinal first in March at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Costa Rica 2014.
“It’s an opportunity to really assess the players selected for the future.”
