U.S. U-15 BNT Off to Bradenton for Eight-Day Training Camp
CHICAGO (Dec. 10, 2010) -- The U.S. U-15 Boys' National Team is set for an eight-day training camp in Bradenton, Fla., under head coach Jim Barlow. Held at the home of the U.S. Socer's U-17 MNT Residency Program, all players were born in 1996 and are age-eligible for the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup. There are 21 players who currently play for Development Academy clubs, but most are two years younger than most players in the U-15/16 age group.
This is the second training camp at the U-15 BNT level for players born in 1996 following a training camp in Carson, Calif., in October. There are 24 players returning from that camp. The team will scrimmage the U.S. U-17 MNT and local clubs during its time in Bradenton. The lone international game will be on Dec. 16 against India.
