CHICAGO (May 2, 2011) – U.S. U-15 Boys’ National Team head coach Jim Barlow has named his roster of 20 players to travel to Zagreb, Croatia, for a 10-day training camp that will include a pair of friendlies against Croatia on May 10 and May 12, and daily training.
It will be the first time that this group, made up entirely of players born in 1996, has come together since a March training camp at The Home Depot Center. There will be 17 players from that camp traveling to Croatia, including four players from the New York Red Bulls Academy.
In total, 12 players participate in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy, competing in the U-15/16 age group mostly against players born in 1994 and 1995.
The trip to Croatia is the only international trip scheduled for the ‘96s this year.
