[LAKEWOOD RANCH CAMP] A squad of 37 players will take part in a week-long training camp in Lakewood Ranch, Fla., beginning Saturday. Tony Lepore's crew includes Wilmer Cabrera, son of the newly appointed Chivas USA coach of the same name, and Timothy Weah, son of former Ballon d'Or winner George Weah.
The players will train twice a day in the morning and evening either side of an afternoon break to focus on their academics. The group will play a pair of friendly games against local club teams on Feb. 5 and scrimmage a U.S. Residency Program team on Feb. 8.
Twenty-three players who attended the team’s initial training camp of the cycle last September return for this camp alongside 14 players receiving their first call-up to a Youth National Team camp.
The group includes three under-13 players John Hilton, Matteo Ritaccio and Travian Sousa.
