BOULDER, Colo. — The Top 60 Camp roster has been confirmed. With only a day until the athletes arrive, in Greeley, Colo., a final list of athletes attending has been deciphered.
Those selected will take to the athletic fields at the University of Northern Colorado in hopes of being selected for a Women’s Eagles summer test match. The player-pool drawn from the Top 60 Camp will also be used in moving forward for the 2014 World Cup.
Those athletes will be in pursuit of the ‘final in ‘14’ goal.
“A lot of the athletes that you will see this weekend will most likely be the ones that we will be utilizing for the World Cup,” said head coach, Pete Steinberg.
Once at the Top 60 camp, players will be divided into teams in order to compete in a three scrimmage series. Pitting Stars against Stripes, players will showcase their skills in a team setting for the intra-squad matches.
Scrimmages will take place May 19, 22, and 25, respectively.
Teams will remain predominantly the same throughout the week, however, due to player availability, some players may be traded throughout the week.
Work commitments will hinder some of the more-veteran players, while three of the athletes will be departing early for different reasons. Meya Bizer, Anne Petterson, and Hope Rogers will be leaving ahead of schedule in order to compete at the U20 camp in Chula Vista, Calif.
Practice times are slated for 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. each of the days. Classroom and weight training sessions will be intermittently placed throughout the week as well.
