The U.S. Under-15 Boys' National Team's 50-player roster was released today for the upcoming weeklong training camp from July 30-Aug. 5 in Somerset, New Jersey. The 50 players include six goalkeepers, 14 defenders, 22 midfielders and eight forwards. The players will arrive into Somerset on Sunday, July 30 and head coach Jim Barlow and his four assistants will conduct the first training session that evening at Rutgers University. During the week, the U-15 players will be broken up in to teams and will play scrimmages against local club teams that are yet to be determined. The U-15s will be given instruction by the coaching staff and will also be evaluated as a number of players could possibly move into U.S. Soccer's U-17 Residency Program next year.
