CanW20 camp begins in Rose City

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.

  1. They’ve been pretty consistent in the players called in, which makes me wonder if it’s going to be difficult inserting any U17s into the mix. I see that Summer has come and gone again.

    • I’m trying to find out if the college semester might be having an impact.

      I think Sura Yekka, Jessie Fleming and Kadeisha Buchanan are givens for August’s roster though.
