“We are extremely excited to begin the process of selecting players for the upcoming USL W League season,” stated Charlotte Independence Women’s Head Coach, Robyn Horner. “I have been watching as many games as I can to ID players we’d like to invite out to our tryouts. Last season we were extremely competitive in every game we played, and our inaugural roster of young women were very successful in laying the strong foundation we set out to create. We can’t wait to get started on this next chapter, and we will welcome anyone and everyone out that wants to be a part of this special group!”
