U.S. Under-18 Men's National Team
Head Coach: Javier Perez

The U.S. Under-18 Men’s National Team does not compete in any world championships but instead serves as a transition between the Under-17 and Under-20 Men’s National Teams, which both compete in World Cup cycles.

In 2012, the U-18 MNT will be comprised of players born on or after Jan. 1, 1994, which will make them eligible to compete in the 2013 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Turkey.

Head coach Javier Perez will lead his age group through international tournaments and domestic training camps throughout the year to develop the players and to integrate the U-18 program into the same style as the Men’s National Team in terms of style of play, training sessions and fitness testing.
