    Sky Blue FC Headed to Japan for 10-Day Training Camp (press release):
    I suspect that for the Okinawa leg of the tour, the team may visit one or more of the US military bases there (e.g., MCB Butler and/or Kadena AFB).

    Cool stuff! Really nice to see Sky Blue doing things internationally for the second year running. =-) What I wonder, though, is what "WPS veterans" they plan on taking (if they have a plan at this point already).

    This could be a great opportunity for players interested in playing in Japan or even Australia to get scouted in person, so I think that might be one key incentive for certain players.

    Also, with the USA, Brazil, and Japan playing their matches for the Women’s Kirin Challenge Cup about a week after the tour, I doubt any USWNT players will be a part of this. (At least those not on the travel roster.)

    Since the WPS forum seems to be dead in the water with cricket sounds, for those of you that are interested on Youtube there is a whole series of the Sky Blue trip to Japan:
