YNT Regional ID: Southern Cal 05/06

U.S. Soccer is hosting the YNT Regional Identification Center in Southern California at the facility in Carson on May 19. With an abundance of talent in the region, both the youth national team head coaches Laura Harvey and Tracey Kevins are scheduled to attend. 

Local youth national team scouts had a number of players born in 2005 that they wanted included in the camp and elected to divide the age group between the two separate trainings. The 2003/2004/2005 age group will train in the afternoon while the 2005/2006 age group will train in the morning.

Twenty-nine players were called into the camp in the 2005/2006 age group. San Diego Surf leads the way with nine players called into the event, including the youngest player on the roster Melanie Barcenas, born in 2007. So Cal Blues have four representatives on the roster. Legends FC checks in with three players. There are number of other clubs on the roster as well. 

Beyond Kevins and Harvey, Marieke Laurens, Jenny Bindon, Robert Gallo, Tom Hurdle, and Justine Sauder are also scheduled to work the event.
