[U.S. UNDER-17 RESIDENCY] The U.S. under-17 national team program based in Bradenton, Fla., welcomed 26 first-semester residents as a new cycle begins in preparation for the 2011 CONCACAF U-17 Championship and the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Mexico.

"We did our best to select the best 26 new players available to join our group," said Coach Wilmer Cabrera. "We also invited a number of younger players because after we saw them perform at a U-15 camp here in December, we felt that they were ready. It's a very good group, and the players all deserve to be here."

Fourteen players were part of the program in the fall 2009 semester.

Seven of the new players were born in 1995 and have made the jump from the U-15 national team. Seven players come from MLS academy programs, while Kristian Scott joins the U.S. youth national team programs from Bristol City's academy in England.
