The U.S. Women's National Team will hold a public training session at noon, Tuesday, at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary. So if you have a young soccer fan like I do, who is thrilled to see these guys play this week, here's another event to consider.
The team is squaring off against Switzerland at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday. Tickets to the game are sold out.
Tuesday's practice is free and open to the public. Fans can park in VIP parking and enter through the northwest gate starting at 11:30 a.m. At Tuesday's session, fans can see how the top-ranked team prepares for game day.
The roster includes, among many others, players such as two-time Olympic gold medalists Abby Wambach and Hope Solo and Olympic gold medalist Alex Morgan, who also writes some great chapter books for middle-grade readers, which my nine-year-old daughter loves.
