    I have said this for two years.... make two teams at this level Red and White... At this level and with soooo many kids in the US with such a huge pool why are they just consistently giving the same kids shots. They need to do this for camps as well. Our pool is to big and its the responsible thing to do for the growth of our game here in the US. Its a win win for everyone including MLS who should kick in some money to help pay for the extra camps.

    Two rotating camps of 30 or so and two travelling teams from those camps that represent the US.

    How about using regions with each one having various teams and then a final competition to select a top team or two from each region? Ah well, just a thought but then again, something like this would require US Soccer to form committees and then some more before a final decision is made... and we'll still lag behind!

    Ric, that would be the logical thing to do. It would be well worth US Soccer's while. Just look at how much money FMF makes off of their National team. Worth every penny of investment. Mexico even has a U15 National Tournament for players born in 1999 where teams must qualify first. 24 teams total get invited. There is a National 2nd division team and a National 3rd Division team in that group along with Liga de Ascenso 4 top U15 teams. The rest are MX teams I believe.

    Can anyone please explain to me why players born 97 are called U16 for USSDA but are U17's to the rest of the world?? Our USSF National U15 team is born 99 but they go back and play U14 with their Academy teams. Doesnt make sense.
