Four players from the LA Galaxy academy system, two signed to Homegrown contracts, will be in U.S. soccer camps this winter preparing for the U-20 and U-17 World Cups.

LA Galaxy academy player Rolando Munoz has been named to the U.S. U-17 national team spring residency program in Florida ahead of the 2013 CONCACAF U-17 Championships; the qualifying tournament for the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup.

The tournament will be held in Panama in April, with four teams qualifying from CONCACAF for the World Cup tournament that will be held in the United Arab Emirates.

"We are very excited about the group of players that we brought in this semester," said Williams. "We feel very confident in this group that will provide us with 20 players to go on to World Cup qualifying and hopefully through a successful World Cup qualifying campaign, and will lead us to this year's World Cup."

The Galaxy are one of 17 US Soccer Development Academy clubs sending players to the Spring semester of the residency camp. The Red Bulls lead the pack sending four players, and fellow local side Chivas USA sent two. The Galaxy also had an academy player selected for the US U-20 squad training in Mexico.
