(September 20, 2019) Alberta players, Hannah Duguid and Nyema Ingleton, were named to the Canada Soccer Women’s National U17 Team Camp yesterday. The camp, which will be held in Markham, ON, from September 22-27, features players born in 2003 or later and “will continue Canada’s preparations for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2020” (Canada Soccer).
Duguid has been training at the REX Super Centre in British Columbia since September, 2018. She previously trained with the Alberta South REX program from 2016-2018, played for Alberta at the Canada Summer Games, and competed at the U15 CONCACAF Championship in 2017.
Ingleton spent the 2018-2019 season training with the Alberta South REX program in Calgary and most recently, helped Team Alberta earn gold at the 2019 Western Canada Summer Games in Swift Current, SK. Being born in 2005, Ingleton represents one of the youngest players invited to the camp.

The September camp features players from Canada Soccer’s Regional EXCEL Centres from across Canada, where Canada’s most talented U-14 to U-18 players are offered a specialised daily training environment. This marks the second of three national camps this year as Canada Soccer builds towards next year’s Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship in the first quarter of 2020 (with dates and location not yet announced).
“We are still looking at our depth and making sure are prepared for next year’s Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship,” said Rhian Wilkinson, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National U-20 and U-17 Team Head Coach. “There is a lot of good talent in Canada and we are staying connected with our Regional EXCEL Centres in order to make the best selections possible for next year’s tournaments and the future of the Women’s National Team Program.”
