Placer’s 94’s Paige Crouch, Lauren Gollnick and Madeline Schiffel were selected to participate in the Player Development Program (PDP) through NorCal Premier and US Club Soccer. The girls were picked out of a group of 50 players to train with US Women’s National Team Staff Coach Mike Dickey and the Market Training Center. The training session was held at Trione Fields in Santa Rosa. This program has been developed to identify possible players for the National Team Pool.
Here are a few quotes from the girls and their experience at the session:
Crouch: “The training session made me realize that there is so much more that I need to improve on for the next level. It has made me want to become a better player and reach my goal of playing for the US National Team.”
Gollnick: “I felt very priveleged to have the opportunity to play with the top players in Cal-North and be coached by a few top college coaches and the National Team Staff.”
Schiffel: “This was a very beneficial experience for me to play with the top players and in front of Coach Mike Dickey. He gave me very good advice on what I need to do for the next level.”
Congratulations to the girls for making it to the final training session. All of us at Placer United are happy that you were able to have this great soccer experience.
