B.C. athletes join Canada Soccer Women’s U20 team

Several BC players have been named to join Soccer Canada for the qualifiers for the Concacaf Women’s U20 Championship.

These upcoming matches will determine which teams advance to the 2023 Concacaf Women’s U20 Championship to be held in the Dominican Republic at the end of May.

But before that, Jamie Perot and the rest of the BC players will have to join the rest of their teammates for a U20 prep camp and qualifying match, also in the Dominican Republic.

Canada Women’s U20 head coach Cindy Tye said the game will be a true test of her newly announced team’s ability to work together.

“I’m excited to bring this team together for the first time and test them in a tournament,” Tye said. “We’re going to have to improve and adapt throughout the game because we didn’t have the chance to integrate anything before the game.”

“There’s great talent here and I can’t wait to get started.”

The qualifiers will feature 32 teams divided into six groups, with Canada competing in Group A. The other teams in this group are El Salvador, Cuba, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Martinique.

The winner of each of the six groups will win the title.
