CHICAGO (May 15, 2017) – Four Eclipse Select Soccer Club players are representing U.S. Soccer’s Youth National Teams this week, with the hopes of being part of the corps that will make up their respective age groups’ qualifying rosters at the U.S. U-17 and U.S. U-20 age levels.
Eclipse Select’s trio of forward Kalyssa “Kiki” Van Zanten (Buffalo Grove, Ill.) and midfielders Ainsley Ahmadian (Naperville, Ill.) and Hannah Beber (Naperville, Ill.) has started a weeklong camp with the U.S. U-17 Women’s National Team in Lakewood Ranch, Fla.
Head coach Mark Carr invited a 40-player pool for the camp, which runs through Sunday, May 21. The camp features a scrimmage against the Women’s Premier Soccer League’s Tampa Bay United Hellenic on Saturday. This age group will be part of the team that will help the USA qualify for the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup held in Uruguay.
On the other side of the country in Carson, Calif., the U.S. U-19 Women’s National Team is in the midst of a camp that includes defender Kerry Abello (Batavia, Ill.). The camp will include a match against Japan’s U-20 national team on Friday at StubHub Center’s Glenn “Mooch” Myernick Field.
