The day started before the sun came up for the U-18s. The day was dreary and overcast, but the U-18s ignored the weather and were prepared for the day's game.

The first day of the Developmental Academy Winter Showcase started out early. Both teams woke up at 7:30 a.m. They ate breakfast, picked up their kits, had a pregame meeting, and then left for the Lakewood Ranch complex by 8:30 a.m. Twenty-two fields with hundreds of soccer players, coaches, fans, referees and staff stretched across the green fields. Players commented on how everything back home was covered in snow and then preceded to enjoy the warm, breezy weather.

What do you enjoy most about going to the U.S. Youth National Team's camp?
I enjoy a lot of things about going. I like interacting with the coaching staff because they are all really knowledgeable and helpful. I also enjoy the style of play for the US National Team because it’s very fluid and fun. Oh, and the fields are REALLY nice and the hot weather in California is a plus.
