The U.S. Under-15 Boy’s National Team will gather at the IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla. from Feb. 15-22 for an eight-day training camp led by head coach Jim Barlow. All 36 players in attendance for the team’s first camp of 2009, were born in 1994 and are therefore eligible for both the 2009 and 2011 FIFA Under-17 World Cups.
The U-15 BNT last met in December at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. The USA’s leading scorer from that camp, Melvin Snoh, returns for the February camp along with 17 other players who took part in the December camp and 18 new players.
