are part of the initial group of players selected to the roster for the upcoming U.S. Soccer Under-14 Boys’ National Team training camp in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. The complete roster has not been finalized yet, but we wanted to send out an invitation so that we can confirm your availability as soon as possible. Including travel days, this trip will take place from Saturday, February 1 to Sunday, February 9. Please respond to this email indicating if you are able to attend this camp, as well as confirming your date of birth and letting us know what airport you would like to fly out of. Additionally, if
you have any updates to your contact or roster information, please send that to us as well.
All information regarding this trip will be communicated to you via email from now on, so please make sure to frequently check your email for updates and further information about this event. We will be booking your plane ticket to and from Florida (Tampa) soon, and will be sending that itinerary to you via email. Once we have sent you your itinerary you will have 24 hours to let us know if there are any problems with it (misspelled names, incorrect airport, etc.). After the 24 hour period your flight will be booked and you will be responsible for the fees associated with any changes.
As we get closer to the trip you will receive an information packet with more details about the trip including our housing accommodations, departure day flight schedule, and the tentative weekly schedule. If you have any questions at any
point leading up to the trip please feel free to contact me.
Additionally, we would like to remind players about U.S. Soccer’s player safety initiative. In order to ensure that players have the adequate time to rest and recover before and after a National Team camp, please do not compete in any club (or
high school) matches, tournaments, etc. both one day before (January 31), and one day after (February 10) a National Team camp. As most of you know, National Team camps are high in intensity and workload and it is very important that you
come into camp rested, and then take the appropriate measures to recover after camp
Once again, congratulations, and we look forward to a great week!
National Teams Coordinator
