[OLYMPIC TRAINING CENTER CAMP] U.S. Paralympic national team head coach Stuart Sharp named a 17-player roster for the team’s week-long training camp that begins Thursday at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif. The camp, the team’s fourth this year, will serve as the final selection process before the USA heads to the 7-a-side Football Ciutat de Barcelona in June.

Twelve of the players on the current roster participated in the team’s last camp in March, and defender Josh McKinney has also spent time with the team earlier this year, seeing time in a pair of friendly matches against England in February. Four players have been called in for their first camp since Sharp took over the Paralympic program in January.

Players who have Cerebral Palsy, suffered a stroke or traumatic brain injury and are ambulatory may be eligible to play for the U.S. Paralympic National Team. If they are interested they should email Sharp or team manager Pam Perkins.

U.S. Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (3): Alex Hendricks (Columbus, Ohio), Roman Grier (Atlanta, Ga.), Keith Johnson (Houston, Texas)
DEFENDERS (6): Chris Ahrens (Baldwinsville, N.Y.), Bryce Boarman (Colorado Springs, Colo.), Shea Cassidy (Buena Park, Calif.), Kevin Hensley (Memphis, Tenn.), Josh McKinney (Cary, N.C.), David Rose (Santa Barbara, Calif.)
MIDFIELDERS (5): Adam Ballou (Virginia Beach, Va.), David Garca (Chula Vista, Calif.), Gavin Sibayan (Colorado Springs, Colo.), Marthell Vazquez (Long Beach, Calif.), Jerreme Wade (Chesapeake, Va.)
FORWARDS (3): Dylan Brown (Clovis, Calif.), Michael Moore (Plano, Texas), Rene Renteria (San Fernando, Calif.)
