Ottawa, Ontario - Canadian Men's Youth (Under-20) Head Coach Dale Mitchell has selected 18 players to take part in a training camp and series of games in Houston, Texas from July 22-August 4. The players are part of the Youth Development Team (1983s and 1984s). Canada will play four games at the University of Houston including full friendlies against Mexico and the United States.

These games will serve as part of the team's preparations for the Football Confederation's Under-20 qualifying tournament, which will take place in the United States from November 13-17, 2002. Canada has been drawn in the US group with a team from Central America and a team from the Caribbean.

Mitchell will be assisted by Canadian international Nick Dasovic. Dasovic recently joined the A-League Vancouver Whitecaps after more than six seasons with St. Johnstone in Scotland.
