The camp is held to select the United States team that hopes to qualify for the 2014 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup in Canada.
“There’s still a lot of time before the qualifiers for the World Cup, so I don’t think we’ll find out anything right away,” said Dowd. “I know what to expect, but I’ve never been to any camp with this coach. I think she’ll evaluate the talent at the camp, then continue to watch how we do in college this fall. There will probably be other camps after this one.
“I love playing and do it year round,” added Dowd. “You can practice all the time, but there’s no substitute for the competition games provide.”
