U.S. Soccer welcomes 26 new U-17 residents

MOST COMMENTED

U.S. Soccer's under-17 residency program's fall semester kicked off last week with 48 players enrolled in the program at IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla.

The group in residency includes 14 players who recently represented the USA at the 2007 Under-17 World Cup in South Korea. All 10 players born in 1990 will finish up their high school education this semester while training in the program.

There are 26 players -- 22 '92s and four '91s -- beginning their first semester of training. Zambian-born phenom Charles Renken, who was born in 1993, is in his second semester in the program.

Those players born in 1992 or later will form the nucleus of the U.S. that will attempt to qualify for the next Under-17 World Cup, which will be held in 2009 in Nigeria.

The new residents include Joseph-Claude Gyau, the son of former U.S. international Philip Gyau.

The 48 players live on campus at IMG Academies and train daily under the guidance of Coach John Hackworth and assistant coaches Keith Fulk, Raul Diaz Arce, Tim Mulqueen and Brian Maisonneuve. The players train at IMG in the morning and attend classes at Edison Academy in the afternoon.
