Canada Soccer's Men's U-17 preparation camp

Posted on 23 March 2017 in ↳ Men's EXCEL U-14 to U-17

Canada Soccer will hold a two-week camp in Toronto ahead of the CONCACAF Men's Under-17 Championship in April. The camp will feature as many as 24 players as coach Paul Stalteri continues preparations for the qualification competition to the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017.

"We had a good end to our 2016 year and we hope to continue that with our preparations in the new year," said Paul Stalteri, Canada Soccer's Men's National U-17 Coach. "We know who we are playing in April, so we can put our plans together as preparation will be key to ensure we peak at the right time."

Canada have been drawn into Group B at the 2017 CONCACAF Men's Under-17 Championship, with Costa Rica, Cuba, and Suriname the trio of Canadian opponents in the opening round of the competition in Panama. Canada will open against Costa Rica on 22 April in Panama before facing Cuba on 25 April and Suriname on 28 April.

From three groups, two nations advance to a final round of six after which only four will qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 in October.

The March preparation camp runs 27 March to 9 April in Vaughan and Toronto, Ontario.
