Under-20 Reggae Girlz for training camp in Florida

Jamaica's Under-20 Women's team will benefit from an overseas training camp ahead of the CONCACAF Women's Under 20 Championship  in Trinidad and Tobago from January 17-28, 2018.

The camp will be held in Fort Lauderdale from Thursday, December 28 to Sunday, December 31.

Members of the local delegation will depart the island on Thursday at 3:05 pm. The squad will then depart Fort Lauderdale on Sunday for Costa Rica for two practice games on January 3 and 5.

Jamaica secured a berth in the 2018 CONCACAF Under-20 Women’s Championship on the strength of a first-place finish in the final round of Caribbean qualifying, in St Kitts in November.

In reaching the CONCACAF event for a ninth time, the Reggae Girlz were impressive over the event’s three matchdays, posting a perfect 3-0-0 record, while scoring 11 goals without reply.

Jamaica’s best-ever CONCACAF U-20 placement came in 2006, when they captured fourth place.

Jamaica, Mexico and the United States are the only teams to earn places in every CONCACAF Under-20 Women’s Championship.
