Even with the COVID restrictions, the coaching staff held three sessions per day to allow everyone the opportunity to get in training.
Following the recent announcement that CONCACAF has released a new Senior Women’s National Teams Football Calendar which will begin in 2021 and includes major centralized summer tournaments in 2022 and 2024, the Women’s National team has stepped up the training.
According to a release, the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers are now scheduled to start in November 2021 and the Women Nation’s League will make its debut in 2023.
National coach Naquita Robinson told www.islandstats.com, “This is a very exciting time for women’s football and something we have been preparing for quite some time. As far back as 2015, the process began to start preparing girls to compete at this level.
We have had some early successes with the under 15 and under 17 teams and most of those players have now joined the training squad for these upcoming tournaments.
We also have some experienced senior players and players who are also playing over In the USA and the UK.
We are in a better place both on the coaching level and playing level than we were 5 or 6 years ago at the senior level.
We have players among us that have already played against USA, Canada and were about to play against Mexico.
We know we have a lot of work to do, but we are very encouraged by what we saw these past 2 days.
Due to Covid we had to be creative in our sessions and had to plan technical and tactical sessions with the full complement of players.
Therefore we had 3 sessions on Friday to work on playing out of the back and Saturday we worked on finishing.
We had to be covid creative but we saw a good bit of what we needed to see.
We also have about 10-15 players we haven't seen yet but from what we have seen we are excited.”
