Canada Soccer’s youngest players from the Women’s EXCEL Program gained invaluable tournament experience at the 2018 Concacaf Girls’ Under-15 Championship, ending the tournament in 5th place.

Canada won three of its four matches, with a 1:0 win over Dominican Republic, a 7: 0 win over Panama, and a 2:0 win over a Haiti. Canada’s only defeat came in it’s first match, with a 2:1 loss to Costa Rica.

Canada’s squad featured 18 players born 2003 or later, which also makes them eligible for the next Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship in 2020. This year’s Canada U-15 squad was 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 for Canada are either currently part of Canada Soccer’s Regional EXCEL Program or will be as of the new season in September.

“I’m very impressed by the level of these young women the REX program produced”, said Wilkinson. “It was great watching them play and being tested, but also coming together as a group. They gain some experience, they learned something and we are very proud of them.”

The next major event for Canada’s Soccer’s Women’s EXCEL Program will be the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup taking place in Uruguay from 13 November to 1 December. Canada qualified for the tournament after placing 3rd at the Concacaf U-17 Women’s Championship earlier this year.
 

Canada Soccer will have an opportunity to develop some of their youngest players from the Women’s EXCEL Program at the 2018 Concacaf Girls’ Under-15 Championship from 6 to 13 August. Canada will play at least four international matches and hopefully a fifth as they aim to reach the confederation final for the third time.
 
Canada won the 2014 edition and finished as runners up in 2016. This time, the competition features 12 nations in Division 1 from which three group winners and the best second-place team will advance to the semi-finals. There are 10 Concacaf nations and two guest European nations in the group phase.
 
The Canada squad features 18 players born 2003 or later, which also makes them eligible for the next Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship in 2020. This year’s 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.
 
“This marks the first international test for many of our young players heading into the 2020 cycle towards the next Concacaf and FIFA U-17 tournaments,” said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National EXCEL U-15 to U-23 Director. “The Concacaf Girls’ Under-15 Championship provides a great opportunity for the players to test themselves and it will be the first time these players come together for four or five international matches.”
 
All 18 Canadian players are either currently part of Canada Soccer’s 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.
 
Wilkinson in particular has been part of Canada Soccer’s leadership pathway in her transition from player to coach, with a goal for Elite Players Leading Elite Players as part of the Women’s EXCEL Program. Wilkinson has already served as part of Canada’s technical staff at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 and both the 2018 Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship and 2018 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship.
 
“When we decided to host the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015™, we committed TO A GREATER GOAL by focusing on legacies from the tournament that included putting women in leadership positions,” said Peter Montopoli, Canada Soccer General Secretary.  “The world has come a long way in terms of opportunities for women in sport, but as leaders in this area we are in a position to ensure steps are taken to not only create opportunities in leadership for women, but to support them with training and development experience.”

 
Canada is in Division 1, Group B alongside Costa Rica (7 August), Dominican Republic (8 August), and Panama (11 August). Group A features USA, Jamaica, El Salvador and Portugal while Group C features Mexico, Haiti, Puerto Rico, and Northern Ireland. The knock-out and classification matches are 11 August. All the matches will be played at the IMG Center in Bradenton, FL, USA.
 
Canada Soccer’s Women’s EXCEL Program brings together the best with the best at the national youth level from the U-14 to U-20 age groups. The program delivers an aligned talent structure that progresses players from the youth levels to the Women’s National Team. Across Concacaf, FIFA, and other youth competitions, players develop the Women’s EXCEL Program Playing Model and benefit from invaluable tournament expertise.
 
Additionally, Canada Soccer’s most talented U-14 to U-18 players are offered a specialised daily training environment through the Women’s EXCEL Centres. The program delivers Canada Soccer’s national curriculum through a two-tiered talent system, with three EXCEL Super Centres in British Columbia, Ontario, and Québec supported by smaller Regional EXCEL Centres positioned across the country.

A late goal from Andersen Williams gave Canada a 2:1 victory over Haiti and secured the young Canadians’ spot at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018. All the scoring was done in the second half, with Canada's Jordyn Huitema and Haiti's Melchie Dumonay the goalscorers before the Williams winner in the 89th minute. With the win, Canada finished in third place at the Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship in Bradenton, FL, USA.

CANADA 2:1 HAITI : MATCH CENTRE

The FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018 runs 13 November to 1 December in Colonia del Sacramento, Montevideo, and Maldonado. Canada, Mexico, and USA will join 13 other nations in Uruguay.
 
"We are really happy for the group because we knew it would be a very tough match to get to the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup," said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National EXCEL Director U-15 to U-23. "Across the tournament, we were really impressed with the group and how everyone committed to their task."
 
Williams headed home the match winner past a cluster of Haitian defenders in the 89th minute. Huitema was the first player to get her head on the long Julianne Vallerand corner kick, knocking the ball back to where Williams was positioned just a few feet from the goal.
 
Canada opened the scoring in the 48th minute after Caitlin Shaw put a long ball over the top of Haiti’s defenders to spring Huitema, who calmly side-footed the ball past Madelina Fleuriot into the back of the net. Haiti equalized with just over 10 minutes remaining in the second half on a Melchie Dumonay penalty kick.
 
The Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship provides Canada’s young players with invaluable tournament experience, where they must adapt to hot temperatures and the different styles of play of their opponents.

"Within this tournament, there have been opportunities for the players to learn and that has been evident from the first match," said Priestman. "That learning must continue as the players push to get better along their journey to Canada Soccer's Women's National Team. Qualifying for the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup Uruguay 2018 will help our players in their journey."
 
Canada finished the group stage as runners-up in Group B behind the United States with two wins and one loss to advance to the semi-finals. A 1:2 loss to Mexico in the semi-final meant that Canada needed to win the third-place match against Haiti to appear at their sixth consecutive FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup. They managed that in the Tuesday 12 June match.
