“We are using this camp to evaluate the players off-island and to implement the new professional standards and playing style to those players,” said Karl Dodd, Head Coach of the Matao, Guam men’s national team. “Through the camp, we will be able to assess players playing in intercollegiate and professional leagues in the United States. For every tournament, we want to call up the best players available to produce the best results for Guam.”

The training camp will officially begin Monday, Mar. 19 through to Tuesday, Mar. 27 with friendly matches against San Diego State University and L.A. Galaxy II on Mar. 23 and Mar. 27, respectively.

Players called up to the camp are A.J. DeLaGarza, Marlon Evans, Dallas Jaye, Isiah Lagutang, Alexander Lee, Justin Lee, Nathaniel Lee, Shane Malcolm, John Matkin, Jacob McDonald, Edward Na, Dylan Naputi, Shawn Nicklaw, Travis Nicklaw, and Jared Pangindian.

On the training camp staff are Dodd, Joshua McCloughan, Matthew Ham, Dr. Luis Cruz, Dr. Ryan Claros, Ross Awa, and Ian Mariano. McCloughan and Ham will be flying out of Australia to meet the team in California.

Domestic players on both the Matao and the U23 National Team training squads have been training three times a week since February, with the U17 and U15 National Team training squads starting 10th April. The U15 will be preparing for the upcoming EAFF U15 Boys Championship in the summer.

The Masakåda, Guam Women’s National Team, also will be training with Head Coach Belinda Wilson three times a week in preparation for the Women’s Competition of the EAFF E-1 Football Championship. Next month, the U17 Women’s National Team also will be training three times a week.
