Cool JA for girls

The Cayman Islands Football Association national Under-17 Girls team is scheduled to leave the island to stay in ‘Cool Cool’ Mandeville, Jamaica for an intensive five day training camp.

The delegation which consists of 25 people goes today and returns on Monday. The girls will play Jamaica’s National U-17 team, the Lennon High School team, a girl’s team from the Los Perfectos Academy and Excelsior High School team before they leave the island.

This trip was planned by CIFA as a means of preparing the squad for the upcoming Caribbean Football Union Youth Cup and U-17 Qualifiers scheduled to take place in Trinidad between July 30 and August 9.

The Cayman Islands U-17 Girls created a stir in November 2007 during the World Cup Girls U-17 Qualifiers in Antigua where they were edged out by Jamaica 2-1 one in a tough game after dismissing Antigua 3-0 and British Virgin Island 4-0 in previous games.

The squad under coach Bobby McLaren have been in training for several months now and will be using this training camp to hone their skills and fitness.
