Camp is under way for the squad, as they close in on this summer’s U-20 Women’s World Cup. The session began April 1st and runs until the 11th with 20 players on hand.
There are no new faces on the roster, as all of the players have called to previous camps. GK Marie-Jöelle Vandal has returned for her second camp, after taking part in national activity for the first time ever earlier this year when the U-20s got together in Burnaby.
Rebecca Quinn, Ashley Lawrence and Nichelle Prince all have senior squad experience. Quinn recently suited up for Canada at the 2014 Cyprus Cup to earn her first cap. Lawrence and Prince both saw playing time in 2013.
