US Virgin Islands Soccer Association (USVISA) is proud to announce the U14 Boys team headed to the Dominican Republic to compete in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) U-14 Boys Challenge Series from August 13-21. This will be the second time it will be participating in the Caribbean Football Union tournament for several of the players. The tournament is usually played every two years but was postponed until 2021 due to the COVID pandemic.
This continued exposure of Virgin Islands’ youth to international competitions is paramount to USVISA’s success in growing the game and providing developmental opportunities for adults and youth throughout the territory.
Before departing for the Dominican Republic on Aug. 11, the entire team is training at the Bethlehem Soccer Complex on St. Croix. Local and overseas-based players are together for a pre-tournament camp.
Twenty-five Caribbean Football Union member associations are scheduled to participate in the 2022 tournament. The teams are divided into six groups based on ranking from the 2018 and 2020 editions. USVISA is in Tier II (Group 4) with Anguilla; British Virgin Islands; St. Martin; and Turks and Caicos Islands.
Congratulations to the players and their families.
