The national Under 15 team is currently continuing their preparation to participate in the 2019 CONCACAF Under 15 Boys Championship scheduled to take place at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.

Coached by St Croix ‘Vaso’ Albert, the team has an impeccable record to date. In 2018 they emerged Group Champions in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Boys Challenge and earlier this year defeated a team from Puerto Rico.
