TTFA to start Under-13 screening today

Monday, June 19 2017

THE TRINIDAD and Tobago Football Association’s Under-13 boys programme will commence with a screening session at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva from 3 pm today.

This, according to TT FA technical director Muhammad Isa, will be the start of a process to select a National Under-13 boys team to prepare for future competitions such as the CONCACAF Under-15 Championship, leading to Under-17 and Under-20 World Cup qualification in the next four to six years.

Players will be screened, entered into a database and carefully assessed by coaches over a period of sessions as the selection process is continued towards preparations for future assignments, both on the local and international stage.

According to Isa, “This is not for immediate selection on a national Under-13 team but moreso a programme that will be overseen by the TT FA geared towards national team selection and preparation at the youth level. We already have a National Under-15 and Under-17 team in training and now we have commenced the process for an earlier age groups.” Russell Latapy is currently the coach of the current Under-15 boys team preparing for the CONCACAF Championship in Florida in August while the former TT playmaker and captain is also overseeing the Under-17 Boys for future Under-20 competitions.

“We have already held trials for the Under-14 girls and this process will continue as we aim to increase the talent pool with the national Under-17, Under-20 and women teams currently also in training. The Under-17 girls are now preparing for the Caribbean leg of qualification for the Under-17 World Cup which will be played in Trinidad in August,” Isa said.

The TT FA has also conducted four grassroots festivals clinics in four locations – Blanchisseuse, La Brea, Chaguanas and Palo Seco over the past six weeks and will be moving to other locations in the coming weeks. Approximately 300 players, under the age of 11, have had the chance to take part in the exercise so far.
