Leroux, Hinkle and Mewis to Attend January Camp

JANUARY CAMP
12/31/2015 10:08 AM -

U.S. Women’s National Team head coach Jill Ellis has named 26 players for the first training camp of 2016, which will lead into the first match of the year against the Republic of Ireland on January 23 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego (2 p.m. PT, FS1). Of that roster, three players will represent the Flash as Sydney Leroux, Jaelene Hinkle and Samantha Mewis have all been called into camp. 

The U.S. team will begin training at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center in Carson, California, on Jan. 5 and train through Jan. 21 when the squad will head south to prepare for its final game before the 2016 CONCACAF Women's Olympic Qualifying Championship begins on Feb. 10 in Texas.

“This camp begins the next chapter of this program,” said Ellis. “We’ll have just over two weeks together to begin to build cohesion and integrate the younger players into our processes, and then we will regroup for Olympic qualifying. The leadership and experience of our returning World Cup players will give us a solid starting point on which to build, and we are looking forward to the next challenge.”

Leroux was a member of the U.S. Women’s National Team’s World Cup winning-roster, while Hinkle and Mewis earned call-ups during the post-World Cup Victory Tour. Hinkle received her first career cap and has earned a total of four, with three-straight in the month of December. Mewis, who has received numerous call-ups, also has four caps with the full national team. 

Ellis will name 18 players to suit up against Ireland and will name the roster for Olympic Qualifying following that match.
