Canada's U-17 national team will have a distinctive Toronto FC flavor ahead, as six members of the TFC academy were selected to take part in the team's training camp in February ahead of CONCACAF's U-17 championships in Panama.

Jordan Hamilton will lead another strong TFC contingent into this camp, which includes fellow forward Luca Uccello, along with defenders Elias Roubos, Kevon Black and Ian Fernandes, as well as midfielder Derick Sequeira into the camp in early February down in Florida. Uccello will be one of two debutants at the national camp, after playing for Canada in a U-15 tournament last year in Mexico

There will also be strong Vancouver Whitecaps Residency representation at this camp, as that side will offer six players. FC Edmonton's reserves and the Montreal Impact's academy will offer one each.

The team will gather in Florida next week, and train there for five days before heading to Costa Rica for two friendlies. This will be the team's last chance to make any changes ahead of the continental championship, which will determine which teams will represent CONCACAF at the U-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates later in the year.
