The U.S. Under-18 Men’s National Team will convene for a domestic training camp from March 25-April 1 in Carson, California. Among the players invited to attend the training camp are two players from the Empire USA Bu18 Development Academy team. Alex Bono (Baldwinsville, NY) and Stefanos Stamaloucatos (Camilus, NY), will join 33 other standouts from across the country in head coach Javier Perez’s first camp at the helm of this team.
Also invited into the training camp, is former Empire USA player Jordan Allen. Although he is currently assigned to Real Salt Lake Arizona, Jordan’s ties to Empire United make Empire the only club to have three players invited train with the U18 National team. Real Salt Lake Arizona, Baltimore Bays Chelsea, CD Chivas USA, LA Galaxy, New York Red Bulls, and Philadelphia Union each contributed two players to the squad.
