June 14th, 2013 8:51PM



[CONCACAF] Concacaf will hold its inaugural Under-15 Championship Aug. 14-25  in the Cayman Islands. The tournament is aimed for smaller countries with the goal of strengthening the game at the youth level.

Participating teams in the inaugural under-15 event come from across the Caribbean and Central America, and include Aruba, the Bahamas, Belize, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Martinique, Puerto Rico, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St. Martin, St. Maarten, St. Vincent, Trinidad & Tobago, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The competition will take place in three venues on Grand Cayman, with teams set to be divided into various groups. The top sides will qualify to a knockout round which will yield the regional champion at this level.

    I don't think adding tournaments in the name of "development" is good for our kids in the US. Sounds like this is a big opportunity for smaller nations to showcase their talent, but we need something better to improve the tactical and technical aspects of our players, at a younger age.

    I think this is good thing for all involved. Development of technical skills happen during other aspects of the game and playing against good competition only allows players and coaches to see where they stand. IMO I feel that other countries have a technical skill edge on US players what they lack is field tactics and financial backing but their on the ball skills are a bit better than the average US player.
