CHICAGO (Aug. 31, 2022) – Sixty players from across the country will gather in Chula Vista, Calif. this week for a U.S. Under-15 Men’s Youth National Team Talent Identification Camp from Aug. 31 to Sept. 6. Twenty players each were selected from the East, Central and West Regions for the training camp at the Elite Athlete Training Center outside of San Diego.
