27 Jan Players invited to try out for U14 Boys National Team
“Especially with the years we lost in football development because of the COVID19 pandemic, we will be reinstating a national team training squad at the U14 age division, serving as the next generation of elite players from Guam to compete at the international level,” Kim said. “We will be holding tryout sessions for eligible players and I will be selecting players to coach consistently so that they’ll better integrate into the future U17 National Team through to the Matao. We will need to better prepare our younger elite athletes technically, so at higher levels they will yield better results.”
Tryout sessions will begin Friday, Feb. 4 to Sunday, Feb. 6 at the GFA National Training Center. All eligible players need to join the Feb. 4 session beginning at 5 p.m. and choose to attend at least one other session – either 9 a.m. on Feb. 5 or 9 a.m. on Feb. 6. Selected athletes for the U14 Boys National Team training squad will begin weekly training in February. Schedule of tryout sessions are subject to change. All registered will receive additional information and announcements via E-mail.
Eligible birth years for the U14 Boys National Team are 2009, 2010, and 2011.
In addition to the tryout sessions, Kim will be organizing an open house for parents at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 4 at the GFA second floor lanai.
