For the team’s first and third training camps of the cycle, head coach Tom Heinemann of the U.S. U-15 Men’s Youth National Team has chosen a 24-player roster.

The camp is being hosted at Kennesaw State University, which is located just outside of Atlanta, from April 12–17.

For this U-15 MYNT cycle, players born on or after January 1, 2009, are eligible based on age, and all 24 players called to camp were born in 2009. Players born on or after January 1, 2008, will compete in the 2025 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Qatar, for which all players in the U-15 MYNT player pool are age-eligible.

Eleven Major League Soccer teams are represented on the roster, with five New York Red Bulls, four Columbus Crew, and three Chicago Fire FC players among them.

So far this cycle, twelve players have participated in all three U-15 MYNT training camps; ten of them are making their squad debuts. Eleven players return from supporting the United States in a UEFA Development Tournament held in Portugal in November of last year, which included wins over Italy and the host country.
