UPPER 90 FC NATHANIAL VAKOS (04) and NATHAN TRICKETT (04) are selected as UNITED STATES YOUTH FUTSAL team players to travel, train, and compete in San Jose, Costa Rica and represent their country.
Led by U.S Youth Futsal Technical Director and the U.S. Mens Futsal National Team Head Coach Keith Tozer and U.S. Youth Futsal Director of Coaching Ty Stauffer players participated in two training sessions and five games during the three-day event which was held in Kansas City from July 13-16. More than 500 players from 32 states were guided and evaluated by 21 coaches from 14 states.
The event brought together the top players that were selected from across the country who attended the U.S. Youth Futsal regionals Identification Trials which was held in seventeen cities throughout the United States for the past ten months. Our very own UPPER 90 FC Nathan Trickett and Nathanial Vakos received acceptance letters from their Regional tryouts in November with an invitation to move onto to the U.S. Youth Futsal 2017 National I.D. Trial, in July 2017- Kansas.
At the National ID trials in Overland, Kansas, the best players in the country were selected for the U.S. Youth Futsal National Teams. It is a great honor to have two of our Upper 90 players reach a Futsal National Team roster.
Nathan and Nathanial have trained, grown and developed under our own UPPER 90 FC Directors since 2009, and are now also identified as Midwest Regional Olympic Developmental players.
Now as National Youth Futsal players, Trickett and Vakos will represent UPPER 90 FC and the United States in Costa Rica July 24-28. Good luck Boys and we wish you all the best on your National Team endeavors.
