Mini camp began October 15, 2011 at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado for a weekend of intense practice and competition. Twenty-nine of the nation's best U17 athletes were invited to participate. As "team mom" it was great to see the 12 from last summer's team that won a gold medal in Cancun, Mexico in the Tournament of the Americas. Check out the blog from that experience by clicking on the web site listed on the right of this blog.
