U.S. U-15 BNT Training Camp Set in Carson, Calif.
CHICAGO (Oct. 23, 2010) -- The U.S. U-15 Boys' National Team is set for a 36-player training camp at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., from Oct. 24-31. The camp is the first at the U-15 level that is made up exclusively of players born in 1996, as the first half of 2010 saw the '96s with Manny Schellscheidt's U-14 BNT.
There are 24 players who took part in the final camp for players born in 1996 under Schellscheidt, held in Somerset, N.J. in June.
There are also 24 players on the roster representing Develpoment Academy clubs, including four players - Vernon Bailey, Corey Baird, Rex Epps and Emerson Hyndman - who are all playing up regularly with players two years older on their club's U-15/16 Development Academy teams early in the season.
With U-15 BNT head coach Jim Barlow unavailable due to his commitment as head coach of the Princeton Men's Soccer team, the camp will be run by Development Academy Technical Advisor and Director of Scouting Tony Lepore. He will be joined by Men's National Team assistant coaches Jesse Marsch and Mike Sorber, former MNT defender Greg Vanney, New England Revolution Academy head coach Bryan Scales, and U-15 BNT regular assistants Charlie Inverso and Gerry McKeown.
