ST. LOUIS, Mo. – There will be four SLSG ECNL Girls participating in the U.S. Soccer YNT Identification Center in Kansas City, Kansas on April 15 for the 2001-2004 age groups.
U.S. Soccer YNT Identification Centers are no-cost identification opportunities for U.S. Soccer Talent Identification Managers to evaluate and monitor top talents. These invite-only training sessions provide opportunities for scout development, education, and mentoring, and help strengthen connection and collaboration between U.S. Soccer, clubs, and their players in local markets. The four SLSG ECNL players invited to the USYNT ID Center on April 15th are Kinley Brown (SLSG ECNL 2003), Rylee Howard (SLSG ECNL 2003), Maci Teater (SLSG ECNL 2003), and Emily Puricelli (SLSG ECNL 2001).
“The club and I are extremely proud of the four young ladies who have been invited in to the U.S Soccer YNT Identification Center on April 15th,” said SLSG ECNL Director Ralph Richards. “For Rylee, it will be her third time in a YNT set up, but for Kinley, Maci and Emily, this will be their first experience. I am so excited for each one of the girls as they have proved they deserve this opportunity."
