The U.S. under-15 boys national team camp being held this week at the PDA training facilities in Zarephath, N.J., has added significance since U-17 national team coaches will be evaluating the '94s for the next cycle of U.S. Soccer's residency program.
U-15 coach Jim Barlow kicked off the week-long training camp on Sunday with 48 players on hand.
All players called into camp are eligible to participate in the 2011 U-17 World Cup.
