Sapling Snapshot: 15/16 Showcase

After missing the 2013-14 Academy Playoffs, the Portland Timbers U-15/16 side will travel to Grand Park in Westfield, Ind., for the 2013-14 Academy Showcase.

U.S. Soccer altered the format of the postseason for the U.S. Soccer Development Academy ahead of the 2013-14 season. The postseason will begin (as the U-17/18 Timbers will see) with group play at Grand Park. Group winners will then be seeded into a knockout bracket, with opening round matches played at the home sites of the higher seed. Semifinals and finals matches will be played in Carson, Calif.

The Timbers 15/16's, as with all the teams the Development Academy that did not qualify for the playoffs, will play in the Academy Showcase alongside the playoffs.

The Saplings will play Richmond Strikers, Colorado Rapids and Virginia Rush in the Showcase.

Portland (6-11-10) finished sixth in the Northwest Division and 53rd overall.

Richmond Strikers (2-21-1) were the 12th place team in the Atlantic Division and were the last place team in the Development Academy at 78th overall.

Colorado Rapids (7-12-8) took ninth in the Frontier Division and 51st overall.

Virginia Rush (6-15-4) placed ninth in the Atlantic Division and 65th overall.

Timbers U-15/16 Showcase Schedule
June 24: vs. Richmond Strikers, Grand Park - Field 8 (Turf)
June 25: vs. Colorado Rapids, Grand Park - Field 9 (Grass)
June 27: vs. Virginia Rush, Grand Park - Field 32 (Grass)

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
