U.S. U17 Men’s National Team head coach Wilmer Cabrera has named the 40 players who will be part of U.S. Soccer’s U17 Men’s National Team Residency Program in Bradenton, Fla., for the Fall 2010 Semester.

Every player in Residency was born on or after Jan. 1, 1994, and is age-eligible to compete in next year’s CONCACAF U17 Championship and the 2011 FIFA U17 World Cup in Mexico. A total of 24 players were part of the team’s most recent international trip, gaining valuable experience in two international games against Spain and two friendlies against Spanish club teams.

Of the 19 returning players from the Spring semester, eight have been part of the program since the Fall 2009 semester in Alejandro Guido, Kellen Gulley, Andrew Oliver, Marc Pelosi, Fernando Piña, Mario Rodriguez, Nathan Smith and Andrew Souders. Those eight players trained with older members of the 2009 FIFA U17 World Cup team during that semester, which served as the beginning of the two-year cycle.

The U.S. players live on campus at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., and train in the morning under the guidance of head coach Wilmer Cabrera and assistant coaches Paul Caffrey, Gerson Echeverry, Paul Grafer and Erik Imler. In the afternoon, the players attend classes at St. Stephens Episcopal School.

Since its inception, more than 300 players have been through the full-time Residency Program including: Freddy Adu, Jozy Altidore, DaMarcus Beasley, Kyle Beckerman, Michael Bradley, Bobby Convey, Landon Donovan, Eddie Gaven, Omar Gonzalez, Eddie Johnson, Justin Mapp, Chad Marshall, Dax McCarty, Oguchi Onyewu, Heath Pearce, Santino Quaranta, Robbie Rogers, Jonathan Spector and Danny Szetela.
