SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – Former UC Santa Barbara goalkeeper Justin Vom Steeg has been named to the United States Under-23 men's national team training camp, announced by the U.S. Soccer Federation earlier this week.
Last month, Vom Steeg was called up to the U.S. National Team's 21-player combined preparation camp roster which took place from May 26-June 2, which served as a tune-up for players named to the Gold Cup and U-23 rosters.
"It's a great step forward for him to get to play with full national team players. This also sets him up well for playing in Olympic qualifiers. It's a great learning experience especially for a young goalkeeper," said UCSB Head Coach Tim Vom Steeg on his selection to the preparation camp.
Now playing professionally within the LA Galaxy organization, Justin vom Steeg played at Harder Stadium as a freshman in the 2015 season, starting in 20 games and allowing just 25 goals. He finished the season with a 13-5-1 record, making 63 saves and recording six clean sheets in the process.
Vom Steeg is one of fifteen Major League Soccer-based players in coach Jason Kreis' squad.
The camp is currently taking place in Herriman, Utah.
