Canada Soccer Announces Team for CONCACAF Girls U15 Chamionship
Canada Soccer will have an opportunity to develop some of their youngest players from the Women‚Äôs EXCEL Program at the 2018 Concacaf Girls‚Äô Under-15 Championship from August 7th - 13th, 2018. Canada will play at least four international matches and hopefully a fifth as they aim to reach the confederation final for the third time.
The Canada squad features 18 players born 2003 or later, which also makes them eligible for the next Concacaf Women‚Äôs Under-17 Championship in 2020. This
year‚Äôs Canada U-15 squad will be coached by Rhian Wilkinson, a Concacaf champion and two-time Olympic bronze medal who has been coaching in the Canadian
program since 2014.
All 18 Canadian players are either currently part of Canada Soccer‚Äôs Regional EXCEL Program or will be as of the new season in September. They will be
coached by Wilkinson along with Regional EXCEL Centre staff Natalie Lawrence (British Columbia), Cindy Tye (Nova Scotia), and Tania Singfield (Ontario).
Like Wilkinson, both Tye and Singfield are former Canadian international players.
Among the selected team is CMFSC's 2016-17 Female Player of the Year, Isabella Mussolini. Isabella joined the BCSPL Intake program in 2015 with the 2003 team. During her time with the team, they placed first in every league season and individually, Isabella was annually selected to attend the BC Soccer High Performance Camp. Notably this past season, Isabella's handwork paid off and she was selected by the Vancouver Whitecaps Elite Super REX as a full-time player.
We wish Isabella and the rest of the Under-15 Canadian Girls' team the best of luck in Florida!
