U-15 Boy's National Team Heads to Training Camp in Zarephath, N.J.
CHICAGO (June 14, 2009) -- U.S. Under-15 Boy's National Team head coach Jim Barlow will kick off a week-long training camp on Sunday, June 14, as 48 players will gather in Zarephath, N.J. The camp coincides with the U-17 MNT training camp which takes place at the same time at the PDA training facilities.
The players will gather from June 14 - June 21 in one of the final U-15 events for players born in 1994. The U-15 BNT recently returned from a week-long stint in Moenchengladbach, Germany, where they trained at the home of Bundesliga side Borussia Moenchenglabach and had daily visits with Men’s National Team midfielder Michael Bradley.
From that trip, 18 players return to Barlow’s team including Jalen Robinson, who wore the captain’s armband in the team’s game against Germany on May 22.
All players called into camp are eligible to participate in the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup. U-17 coaches will be evaluating '94s for the next cycle of U.S. Soccer's Residency Program.
