Canada will face USA, Costa Rica and Bermuda in Group B of the CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Championship taking place at Estadio Nacional in Managua, Nicaragua from 19-29 April 2018. The confederation championship will qualify three teams to FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018.

“It’s an exciting draw for Canada as we will have the opportunity to play two opponents we are familiar with in Costa Rica and USA, but also gain some experience with more of the unknown against Bermuda in our first match of the tournament,” said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer Women’s U-20 Coach and Women’s National EXCEL Director U-15-U-23 after the official draw in Miami on Wednesday. “Many of the squad who recently competed in the CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship will be returning for the Under-17 event, so they will be hungry, experienced, and ready to apply what they learned in a similar environment, with heat and tight turnarounds.”

Canada will face Bermuda on Friday 19 April at 17.30 local (19.30 ET / 16.30 PT), Costa Rica on Sunday 22 April at 17.30 local (19.30 ET / 16.30 PT), and USA on Tuesday 24 April at 20.00 ET local (22.00 ET / 19.00 PT) in the Group Stage.

“We know quite a bit about USA, having drew them 1:1 last year in China, so we are excited to be playing a tier-one national team in the group stage. Additionally, we recently faced Costa Rica in the Under-20 competition with the same coach that will be headed to Nicaragua, so that will be familiar, too.”

 About Canada Soccer’s Women’s National EXCEL Program
Canada Soccer Women’s National EXCEL Program brings together the best with the best at the national youth level, throughout each year. Operating across the U-14 to U-20 age groups, the program is designed to deliver an aligned talent structure and system that progresses more top players to Canada’s Women’s National Team. Major competitions which are viewed as staging posts to assess development, allows for the development of the Women’s EXCEL Team Playing Model and tournament processes and expertise, ultimately preparing players for when they do progress up the system.

Additionally, the most talented U-14 to U-18 players are offered a specialised daily training environment through the Regional EXCEL Program, which is delivers Canada Soccer’s national curriculum year-round through a two-tiered talent system, with three Super Centres streamlining Canada’s National EXCEL Players into training environments in British Columbia, Ontario and Québec from smaller provincial licenced Centres.

Canada Soccer’s EXCEL System has already produced eight Women’s National Team players and Olympic bronze medalists in Kadeisha Buchanan, Ashley Lawrence, Jessie Fleming, Rebecca Quinn, Janine Beckie, Shelina Zadorsky, Deanne Rose, and Gabrielle Carle.

Canada Soccer has invited 27 players to the final U-17 women’s camp of 2017 being held from 22 – 29 November, as it continues to prepare for next April’s CONCACAF U-17 Women’s Championship in Nicaragua, which serves as the qualification tournament for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018.

The camp will continue to focus on the development of this age group through Canada Soccer’s National EXCEL Curriculum and provide National EXCEL Director Bev Priestman a final opportunity to assess the players before heading into the qualification tournament for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.

“We have brought in a few new faces from our ongoing identification from across the country and so to wrap up 2017, we hope to be really clear on the makeup of the group, allowing us to come into 2018 working on key partnerships and how we get the best out of individuals within the team,” said Priestman. “With some players recently in with the Women’s National Team for the USA Series, we will also be drawing upon those experiences, with key players sharing their learnings amongst the group. I hope that the faith in young players the system has shown will keep pushing players to new levels in their daily training environments.”

“We know next year will be a big one for all youth players in the system, so we’ve been putting in the work to prepare our EXCEL players throughout 2017, which has included tournaments and multiple development camps, some of which have included John Herdman (Canada Soccer’s Women’s Program Director and National Team Head Coach), which signifies the alignment and the investment in the overall system with 2019, 2020 and beyond in mind.” said Priestman. “This camp will continue to work on players’ tactical development, as well as the on and off-field connections required to succeed at major international tournaments.”

Canada Soccer’s Women’s EXCEL program has held 102 camp days for players aged 14-20 in 2017, with the U17 team coming together for 53 of those days over seven camps.

Canada Soccer has partnered with Ontario Soccer, Own the Podium, Sport Canada, the Canadian Sport Institute Ontario, and Bill Crothers Secondary School in Markham, ON, to launch its third Regional EXCEL (REX) Super Centre in Canada. The Ontario Regional EXCEL Super Centre will launch in January 2018 and provide Canada’s top youth talent with a centralised daily training environment that supports Canada’s elite women’s youth players through advanced curriculum.

Talented U-14 to U-18 players will be offered a comprehensive training program aligned to Canada Soccer’s national curriculum that provides an opportunity to accumulate high-quality training hours while developing world-class attributes across the four corners of Canada Soccer’s development program.

The 28 players attending the first intake of Canada Soccer Ontario Regional EXCEL Super Centre in January will engage in a full-time program and train or play five days per week in a “best with best” environment with national and internationally licensed coaches from January to June, while attending Bill Crothers Secondary School.

“The Canada Soccer EXCEL Program was designed to ensure Canada is consistently producing female soccer players with the necessary skillset by design, rather than by chance,” said John Herdman, Canada Soccer Women’s National Program Director and Women’s National Team Head Coach. “By cementing the connection between Regional EXCEL Centres across the nation, Canada Soccer’s National EXCEL Program and the Women’s National Team Program, Canada Soccer is aligning Canada’s talent pool to ensure talent is identified and nurtured so players have a clear pathway towards representing our nation on the international stage.”

Since the inception of the Women’s EXCEL System in 2014, player development progress has improved across all age groups, and a significant number of youth players having excelled towards Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team, including bronze medalists Deanne Rose (Alliston, ON), Kadeisha Buchanan (Brampton, ON), Ashley Lawrence (Caledon East, ON), Rebecca Quinn (Toronto, ON), and Jessie Fleming (London, ON).

“An aligned player development pathway is a shared vision for soccer in Canada and will provide long-term sustainability for Canada Soccer’s National Women’s Programs, resulting in benefits for Canada’s most talented players. By working in partnership with Ontario Soccer, Own the Podium, Sport Canada, the Canadian Sport Institute Ontario and Bill Crothers Secondary School, the launch of this program is a first step towards the creation of a sustainable model that can be delivered regionally,” said Peter Montopoli, Canada Soccer General Secretary.

Ontario has a history of producing young players who accelerate through the development system by demonstrating “Gold Medal Standards” at the highest levels. By aligning the training environment in Ontario with Canada Soccer’s development program nation-wide and with the opportunity to develop alongside the best in their age group, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team will be best positioned to have a continued flow of players who have the technical and cultural understanding that will allow them to succeed on the international stage.

“The Ontario REX Super Centre under the leadership of National Team Head Coach, John Herdman, will provide talented U14 to U18 female players from Ontario with a comprehensive training program aligned with the national curriculum,” said Gary Miller, Ontario Soccer Technical Director. “The end goal is to funnel talented players from our Ontario Player Development League (OPDL) or League1 Ontario through the system into the Canada Soccer U14-20 National EXCEL program and Women’s National Team.”

Canada Soccer Women’s National EXCEL Program brings together the best with the best at the national youth level. Operating across the U-14 to U-20 age groups, the program is designed to deliver an aligned talent structure and system that progresses more top players to Canada’s Women’s National Team.
