on .

SANFORD, Florida — Opening day of the Elite Clubs National League Florida National Event in Florida highlighted a new crop of standouts. Here are some standout players from Monday's action according to TopDrawerSoccer.com:

Sarah Mitchell, Michigan Hawks ECNL U17: Solid all-around defender. Made a habit of being the one that consistently killed opposing scoring chances.

Lilian Lucas, Michigan Hawks ECNL U15: Did a nice job of patrolling the middle of the field. Lucas was one of her team's main threats on offense.


LAKE MARY - The second day of the Elite Clubs National League Florida showcase highlighted a new crop of standout players. Here are some standout players from Tuesday's action.

D/M Samantha Kleedtke, Michigan Hawks ECNL U16: Versatile athlete that played in multiple spots all over the field. When she moved to the defender spot, it raised her entire team's intensity on the defensive side.

M/F Isabel Rodriguez, Michigan Hawks ECNL U17: Disruptive force in the middle of the field. She was one of the main reasons the ball spent more time in her opponent's attack zone and helped build an early lead.


LAKE MARY - The third and final day of the Elite Clubs National League Florida showcase highlighted a new crop of standout players. Here are some standout players from Tuesday's action.

Madison Wolfbauer, Michigan Hawks ECNL U17: A good blend of size and speed in the middle of the field. Good shooter and passer that gives opposing defenses headaches.

Alexxis Lipsey, Michigan Hawks ECNL U17: Good nose for the ball. A consistent scoring threat that's always flying in from the wing.

GK Alexandra DeRuvo, Michigan Hawks ECNL U16: Great range and patience in the box. Made several athletic saves in a shutout performance.

The U.S. Under-17 Women’s National Team, under head coach B.J. Snow, will kick off an important year with a training camp from Jan. 3-10 in Lakewood Ranch, Fla.

Snow has called up with 26 players for the second-to-last event before the squad enters CONCACAF qualifying in early March that will qualify three teams for the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup to be held in Jordan in September. The USA will also host a four-team international tournament at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center in Carson, Calif. in mid-February.

The 2016 CONCACAF Under-17 Women’s Championship will be held on the Caribbean island of Grenada from March 3-13. The tournament will send three teams to the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup to be played in Jordan in September of 2016.

The roster for this training camp spans three birth years from 2001 to 1999, which is the age cut-off year for the 2016 U-17 Women’s World Cup.

The Under-17 Women's Championship will feature eight teams, three from the Caribbean Football Union (CFU), two from the Central American Football Union (UNCAF) and three from North America.

Canada, Mexico and the United States are automatically qualified from North America, Guatemala and Costa Rica qualified from the Central American Zone and Jamaica and Haiti qualified from the Caribbean Zone. As host country, Grenada is automatically qualified as one of the three representatives of CFU.

The eight teams will be drawn into two groups of four teams each and after the group stage, the winner and second-place team from each group will cross-over for the semifinals. The winner of each semifinal match qualifies directly to the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup while the two losing semifinalists will play a third-place match with the winner also advancing to the World Cup.
