U.S. under-17 national team head coach John Hackworth welcomed eight new players for the ninth year of U.S. Soccer's full-time residency program at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. The semester kicked off at the beginning of January, but a few players were on trial, giving Hackworth and his staff time to evaluate which players would be invited into the program full-time.

A majority (25) of the players in the 40-player program were born in 1990 and will be vying for a spot on the U.S. roster for the 2007 CONCACAF Under-17 Qualifying Tournament April 21-29, along with Canada, Costa Rica, Trinidad & Tobago and host Jamaica The U.S. is the only country that has qualified for all 11 previous FIFA U-17 World Cups. The 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup will take place in South Korea from Aug. 18-Sept. 9.

Some of the new players were brought because they are to have a chance of helping the USA in qualifying. Others were brought in as long-term prospects.
