U.S. U-15 BNT Training Camp Underway in Bradenton, Fla.
The U.S. U-15 Boy’s National Team has convened in Bradenton, Fla., for the start of a 10 day training camp under head coach Jim Barlow. The camp will be held alongside the U.S. U-17 Men’s National Team training, as all but one of the 36 players were born in 1995 (the lone exception being Emerson Hyndman, born in 1996) and are eligible to play in the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup.
There are 15 players who participate in U.S. Soccer’s Development Academy, playing against players as much as two to three years older than they are, as the U-15/16 consists of players born on or after Jan. 1, 1993. Six more players are part of Academy clubs, but do not yet play in the Academy.
The U-15 BNT will train twice per day at the IMG Academies, scrimmaging the U-17 MNT late in the week.
