Port-au-Prince, Haiti: TSC 2002 ECNL Goalkeeper Jenna Rehm spent a week in Haiti with the U.S. Virgin Islands Women’s National Team competing in the group stages of the Caribbean Women’s Challenge Cup April 16-21.
Rehm, one of the youngest players invited and one of only four teenagers with the team, participated in two matches and training sessions during her week in Port-au-Prince. This tournament served as preparation for the CONCACAF Caribbean World Cup Qualifiers set for May 2018.
Rehm started both matches for the U.S. Virgin Islands team during the week and gained valuable experience on the field. “The pace of the game was really fast,” said Rehm. “Haiti was a really fast and skilled team and it was fun to play against a team like that.”
Outside of their training and two matches, the team participated in various team bonding exercises and enjoyed some sightseeing in Port-au-Prince. “This was the first time I’ve been to Haiti or seen a place like this,” said Rehm. “Its cool that soccer is giving me this opportunity.”
Rehm has been invited back to participate with the team during their World Cup Qualifiers in May.
