Freedom Set for Clash with Rivals from North of the 49th Parallel

The USA Freedom held their annual training camp over the weekend of June 15-17 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. There was a great turn out by women from all across the USA with many returning players from the 2011 International Cup squad and a number of new faces.

“Thanks to each and every player that made it to Minneapolis over the weekend, what a blast it was to be back training, playing and socializing as the mighty Freedom,” said Leigh Barnes, Freedom Head Coach, “now we move our focus to the actual game itself, the 49 Parallel Cup against Canada”.

The USA Freedom and USA Revolution head to Dublin, Ohio for the 49 Parallel Cup on August 4. Both the Freedom and Revolution have the opportunity to field a second ‘development’ team as well as the main squad.

“It will be a fabulous weekend of footy and players of all levels will benefit from the event”, said Barnes. “It was an extremely hard job for the coaching staff to pick the squads due to the geographical diversity of the players. We set a number of protocols prior to the training camp and these have been taken into account as well as past history and knowledge of players as a basis and guide to picking the team. Congratulations to all members of the Freedom squads, I look forward to seeing you all in Dublin and to continue our push to be number 1 at the 2014 International Cup.” he stated.

“The weekend will be all about the development and progression of women’s football in the US and the continued growth of the Freedom program. Having the chance to have a second game is invaluable and exciting and both games will be used to aid in the selection process and development of our the Freedom teams going forward toward the International Cup in 2014,” he concluded.

There are a few opportunities available with the B Squad for anyone wanting to have the experience of playing for the Freedom. Coaching staff will utilize both games in the selection and assessment of players going forward to the 2014 International Cup. Anyone wishing to participate in the B-Squad match should contact Leigh Barnes, Head Coach.
