Chula Vista, CA – The Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center (CVEATC) is excited to welcome back the U.S. U-15 Women’s Youth National Team to campus. 60 players from across the country will gather at the CVEATC from Sept. 6-13 for a Talent ID Camp. During their stay, the U-15 WYNT will be training on our soccer fields and gym, staying overnight and using our dining services. In total, U.S. Soccer will be sending 90 people to the U-15 WYNT Talent ID Camp, including staff. This is the second U.S. U-15 National Team ID Camp at the CVEATC this summer, as the U-15 MYNT had the same camp last week (Aug. 31 – Sept. 6).
U.S. Soccer Director of Talent Identification Mirelle Van Rijbroek will oversee the camp along with U-15 WYNT head coach Katie Schoepfer. Upon arrival, the 60 players will be separated evenly by region, 20 players will train with the West, 20 with the Central, and 20 with the East. Talent ID manager Marieke Laurens and U.S. U-15 WYNT assistant coach Katie Norton will coach the West team. The Central team will be led by Lindsey Basalyga, Katie Cole and Youth National Team scout Ronnie Woodard. U.S. Soccer Talent ID Manager Diane Drake and U.S. U-15 WYNT assistant coach Kelly Sims will coach the East squad. Meanwhile, Ileana Moschos will coach the Goalkeepers.
The U-15 WYNT are coming off a dominant performance at the 2022 Concacaf U-15 Girls Championship, defeating Canada in the title game, 4-1. This was the first official international tournament for each player on the roster. The team outscored its opponents 34-1 during the tournament, with Forward Kennedy Fuller taking home the tournaments Golden Ball with 9 goals.
Aside from on-field training, the players will learn about Youth National Team principles of play, position profiles, and goal setting in order to help them take responsibility for their own development. During their time at the CVEATC, a sport scientist from U.S. Soccer’s High-Performance department will be on hand throughout the camp to educate the players on a healthy nutrition, recovery and more.
The CVEATC would like to welcome back the U.S. U-15 WYNT to campus, and would like to congratulate all the players for making the roster.
