Chula Vista, CA – The Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center is excited to welcome back U.S. Soccer to campus. This will be U.S. Soccer’s first regional minicamp of 2023 at the Women’s Youth National Team Under-14 level. A total of 80 athletes will be participating in the training camp which will take place Feb. 2-6, along with 40 staff members. During their time at the CVEATC, U.S. Soccer will have access to our soccer fields, conference spaces, dining services (breakfast, lunch and dinner), overnight stay in our dormitories, and our sports therapy building. U.S. Soccer are frequent visitors to the CVEATC, as they have been training here since we opened in 1995.
80 players from the West Region (California, Oregon, Utah, and Washington) will gather at the CVEATC with the intention of expanding and improving the Women’s Youth National Team player pool. The overall objective of the camp is to discover and introduce top talents at the U-14 level into the scouting funnel of the older U-15 to U-20 WYNTs. In addition to expanding the YNT player pool, the scouting and identification structure gives U-14 players more opportunities to understand core principals of the YNT philosophy and to continue their growth and development.
U.S. Soccer Talent ID Manager West Marieke Laurens will oversee the mini-camp alongside Talent ID Director Mirelle van Rijbroek. Meanwhile, Talent ID Managers Lindsay Basalyga (North), Katie Cole (South) and Diana Drake (East) will run the practices. The mini-camp format that the players will be in helps evaluate and motivate high potential players while speeding up their development in an engaging and challenging environment.
The Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center would like to congratulate all the players who made the West Region Talent ID roster, and wish U.S. Soccer the best of luck as they continue the growth and development of the Women’s Youth National Team player pool.
