[NTC CAMP] The U.S. under-15 boys national team is at the U.S. Soccer’s National Training Center in Carson, Calif., for the last training camp before players born in 1998 are eligible for the U-17 age group.

U.S. U-17 coach Richie Williams will oversee the camp.

    East coast, West coast, repeat. Something is flawed with US Soccer's player identification process when only twos player on this team are from the Midwest, and one of them (Rice) has been in the program for a while. In the Northern Illinois Soccer League alone, which covers the greater Chicago area, there are 17,000 players. Add in the rest of the Midwest, and how is it possible that we have so little representation from this part of the country?

    17 of the players picked do not play Academy. I would love to be a fly on the wall(or pitch)to watch the clubs these non acadedmy kids play for. How do these kids get noticed AND followed to determine the criteria for selectng them for a trip to Mexico? How do these clubs; non-academy; support such fantastic players?

    "Two foreign-based players are at the camp: Christian Albelo, who plays in Hoffenheim's youth system, and Joe Gallardo, who is at Monterey in Mexico." Soccer America Journalist...you forgot one more...Joshua Perez (Fiorentina!)
