Three Bolts Players Called to U14 National Team Camp
Seventy-Eight players were called to New Jersey for the US Youth National Team U-14 Talent ID Region Mini-Camp from April 4th-8th. Defender
Alexi Karalis, and forwards
Alex StJohn &
Vichtor Vieira were among the invited players from across the Region which includes Northeast, NJ/NY, Atlantic and South Atlantic areas of the US.
In addition to the on-field competition, the mini-camp will focus on off-field education. Players will be introduced to YNT principles of play, position profiles and goal-setting to help them take responsibility for their own development.
The mini-camp will introduce the 78 players to U.S. Soccer's High Performance department. A sport scientist will be on hand throughout the event, taking Peak Height Velocity (PHV) measurements to help educate players and coaches about the impact of growth and maturation on development. The sport scientist will also educate players about best practices for nutrition and recovery.
The majority of the players called into the East Mini-Camp were identified at last fall's Development Academy East Regional Showcase and were further evaluated at YNT Identification Centers as part of the scouting process prior to being selected for this camp.
