July 10, 2013, Edmonton, AB (ISN) – The Alberta Soccer Association’s (ASA) Select Team Training Camps have gotten underway this week in preparation for national competitions this summer.

Getting chosen for the Alberta Soccer Select Team signifies a player’s status as one of the best in their age group in the province and also places them on a stage to be recognized for national teams, semi-professional teams and colleges and universities. Past Alberta Soccer Select Team members include national team standouts Erin McLeod and Kevin McKenna, former Manchester United player Owen Hargreaves and FC Edmonton rising star Hanson Boakai.

Select Teams exist for both boys and girls in four different age categories (U13-U16) and for Canada Summer Games Teams. U13 and U14 Teams will compete at the Prairie Invitational held in Calgary this year from July 22-28. The U15 and U16 Girls Teams will compete at National All-Stars in Thunder Bay, ON from July 14-21. The U15 and U16 Boys Teams will compete at National All-Stars in Laval, QC from July 14-21. Canada Summer Games Teams will both compete in Sherbrooke, QC with the women competing from August 1-10 and the men competing from August 10-18.

Media interested in the Championships are invited to the Training Camp Locations to cover training and interview players and coaches. A full list of players can be found here. Please contact Lindsay-Anne Freire to attend. All teams will train between 10 AM to 12 PM and 2 PM to 4 PM daily during the date range given below.
