Three Internationals SC Players Invited to 2017 ECNL/id2 National Training Camp
Two players from Internationals SC are closing out their trip to the 2017 ECNL/id2 National Training Camp held over the weekend in Portland. The camp included approximately 85 of the top female youth soccer players born in 1999, 2000, and 2001 from across the United States.
Youth Soccer News: Internationals SC standouts Taylor Huff, Jordan Brewster and Sydney Dawson were invited to participate in the 2017 ECNL/id2 National Training Camp. The event concludes Monday, July 31, at the University of Portland after kicking off Thursday.
Huff and Brewster have competed in the event, while Dawson declined the invitation due to a scheduling conflict.
“We are thrilled to have three of our ECNL members selected to the 2017 ECNL National
Training Camp,” said Keri Sarver, Internationals SC Director of Coaching. “It is always a highly competitive, well-organized event hosted at top-notch facilities. Taylor Huff and Jordan Brewster were consistently involved in their team’s ability to create and convert goal scoring opportunities throughout the season. As a center back, Dawson was instrumental in her team’s success as well – she was consistently solid defensively, helped to organized our entire team and initiated our attack from the back. We are happy to see their efforts recognized by the league and are well-deserved.”
Players were selected based on their performances at ECNL competitions, ECNL/id2 PDP events, and other events throughout the year. In addition, the id2 2002 National Girls Selection and the top 14 players born in 2002 from the id2 Training Camps held over the past 12 months participated in the camp.
“I’m very lucky to get this opportunity and to represent Internationals,” said Huff.
Participants had the opportunity to play with and against the best athletes in the country and be coached by an elite staff of youth coaches.
The 2017 ECNL/id2 National Training Camp is a joint effort between the ECNL, U.S. Club Soccer’s id2 National Player Identification and Development Program, and Nike. The camp is open to all players regardless of U.S. Soccer affiliation, or lack thereof, and is sanctioned as an Olympic Development Program by US Soccer and the United States Olympic Committee (USOC).
