    BURNABY, Canada – The Canada under-20 women’s national team convened Sunday for its first training camp of 2014 with an eye towards the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, which the nation will host in August.

    Head coach Andrew Olivieri has called 18 players to the city of Burnaby, just east of Vancouver, as he launches preparations in advance of the competition.

    “We are really pleased with the progress of the program as a whole over 2013 as we have been able to provide a lot of quality time in our environment to our most promising players,” said Olivieri.  “We have had about a dozen players bridge multiple environments across age groups and consider this a positive sign as the players showing the most talent are receiving accelerated development.

    “This camp will focus on progressing the core of the team to another level while immersing a couple new players into the culture as we move closer to our final preparations for Canada 2014.”

    The gathering concludes on February 27, just two days before the U-20 Women’s World Cup draw takes place in Montreal.
