FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Revolution Under-16 players Austin Aviza (Medway, Mass.), Gabe Gissie (Worcester, Mass.), Zach Herivaux (Brookline, Mass.), Guy Kabala (Manchester, N.H.), Amadu Kunateh (Salem, Mass.), Declan McCabe (Weston, Mass.) and Christian Sady (North Andover, Mass.) have been selected to attend the U.S. Soccer Training Center on Wednesday, June 13, at Gillette Stadium.
“We are pleased anytime our players have the opportunity to train with the Youth National Team staff,” said Revolution Director of Youth Development and Under-16 Head Coach Bryan Scales.
“It is a special opportunity for those players who have been identified and invited to this training center. It also gives all of the other players in our development program something to strive for as they continue to train and play matches at a consistently high level throughout the season,” Scales continued.
U.S. Soccer conducts training centers in conjunction with local clubs and state associations to identify players with Youth National Team potential. Administered by the U.S. Soccer Development Academy regional conference’s technical advisor and members of the U.S. Soccer national staff, these sessions are designed to evaluate top players from the area’s Academy teams before Youth National Team trips and camps.
The Under-16 team returns to Gillette Stadium this weekend, playing Oakwood Soccer Club on Saturday, June 9, before taking on South Central Premier on Sunday, June 10. Currently 14-6-2 (44 pts.) overall, the U16s’ 4-1-1 divisional record has the team in third place in the Northeast Division of U.S. Soccer’s East Conference.
