U17 Camp in US and Martinique

Canada announces roster, matches for U-17 program

Canada's men's U-17 team has announced its roster for the upcoming camp in USA and Martinique. The 12-day camp begins in Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA and concludes in Fort-de-France, Martinique. Canada will play three international matches in Martinique: one against Martinique on 20 May, another against Guadeloupe on 22 May, and a third match against Antigua, Guyana or Martinique on May 23.

"This will be a great opportunity for these players to test themselves in international competition," said national coach Sean Fleming. "The quality of the opposition is extremely high, so that will help us evaluate the players in a realistic environment."

Coach Fleming has selected 18 players for this camp, the team's second camp in 2010. Coach Fleming said the selection of players was difficult because many quality players were eligible. He hopes that the bigger U-17 pool remains as competitive as it has been and that those players not invited to this camp continue to play at a high level.

The first portion of the camp runs 13-17 May in Fort Lauderdale. The team will train once or twice a day for five straight days. The team then travels on 18 May and runs the second portion of the camp from 19-23 May. Canada will again train once or twice a day in Martinique; the three international matches will be played at Stade Louis-Achille in Fort-de-France.

Canada, whose title sponsor is BMO Financial Group, is currently preparing for next year's 2011 CONCACAF Men's Under-17 Championship. Next year's confederation championship will feature 12 teams from North America.

The CONCACAF championship will serve as the qualification route for the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2011.

Not surprised to see a couple of Unionville SC players on this roster. Back in 2007 at the U20 WC the head coach and his son (who played on the team) sat directly behind us and we chatted them up. They had just won a tournament that Canada Day weekend and were apparently undefeated so far that year and were defending champs or something like that. 3 years later i guess there was a reason why they were doing so well...

According to the CSA site, Canada U17s won the tournament with captain Bryce Alderson named tourney MVP. Actually, the CSA site has some good write-ups for a couple of the games.

Not surprised to see Alderson named tournament MVP. Very impressed with him on recent Ontario tour to Switzerland and Italy. Still young but a name to watch for in the future. (Captain of our World Cup team in 2018??)
