As NYCFC continues on the road to assembling USSF Girls DA teams in the 2004, 2003, 2002/1, and 2000/99 age groups, a pool of US National Youth team players have joined many talented Metropolitan area players looking at the program.

From the growing pool of top level players, the following US Youth National Team players have earned spots thus far: Kelly Monaco (2003), Angela Aguero (2001), Julia Dohle (2001), and Rebecca Jarrett (2000).

Kazbek Tambi, NYCFC Girls Academy Director, said "We are excited about the growing numbers of players aiming to earn positions in the NYCFC Girls Academy. The talent level is fantastic and we really look forward to pushing more players into the national levels".

Tambi also previously served as the Head Coach of the U17 US Women's National team, leading them to the silver medal at the New Zealand World Cup, which still stands as the most successful US U17 World Cup campaign.

The NYCFC Girls Academy will train and compete out of the Orangeburg Soccer Complex, widely viewed as the top youth soccer complex in the region and located adjacent to the new NYCFC professional team training facility which is presently under construction.

NYCFC Girls Academy has a few more trials coming up as follows:

May 19: 8:30 - 10pm U14 (2004) and U15 (2003)
June 2: 8:30 - 10pm U16/17 (2001 & 2002) and U18/19 (1999 & 2000)
