The Canada U-17 women's national soccer team is a youth soccer team operated under the Canadian Soccer Association. Its primary role is the development of players in preparation for the senior national team. The team's most recent major tournament was the 2018 CONCACAF Women's U-17 Championship, which was postponed after Canada had played one match due to civil unrest in Nicaragua.[1]

HistoryEdit

At the 2008 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup, Canada advanced out of group stage where they were defeated by Germany in the quarterfinals. Canada won the 2010 CONCACAF Women's U-17 Championship after beating Mexico in the final, but were eliminated at group stage of the 2010 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup. At the 2012 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup, Canada matched their best appearance, dropping their quarterfinal game to North Korea.

Beverly Priestman took over duties from Bryan Rosenfeld in 2013 to direct the new Women's Excel Program (U-14/U-17).[2] Priestman previously assisted Canada's senior coach, John Herdman, when both coached in the New Zealand women's program. Qualifying second out of CONCACAF, Canada was drawn into the "group of death" at the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup with European champions Germany, African champions Ghana, and Asian runners-up North Korea. Canada tied their first two games and secured a quarterfinal birth by defeating group winners Ghana in the final group stage game. Canada lost their quarterfinal match 3–2 to Venezuela.
