The 2007 age group will then become the U-18 MYNT, while the current U-16 MYNT will become the U-17 MYNT and compete at the 2025 Concacaf U-17 Championship with the goal of qualifying for the 2025 FIFA U-17 World Cup.

Gonzalo Segares, who led the U.S. to the knockout stage of the 2023 FIFA U-17 World Cup, will serve as head coach for the 2008-birth year U-16 MYNT this year and continue with the 2008s as they transition to become the U-17 MYNT on Aug. 1.

Fifteen clubs are represented on the roster, led by three players each from MLS’ Inter Miami CF, LA Galaxy and New York City FC. Atlanta United FC, FC Dallas and Seattle Sounders FC also have two players apiece. Two players are based abroad: Brighton Hove Albion midfielder Darius Lane (England) and Lyon midfielder Axel Perez (France). Ten players were a part of the 2007-birth year U-17 MYNT’s first training camp of the cycle last fall in Portland, Ore.

With five players each, California and Florida lead the way of the eleven states represented on the roster. The squad also features players from Illinois (three), Washington (two), Connecticut, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Texas and Utah (one each).
