COMMERCE CITY, Colo. - Colorado Rapids Academy player Jaden Chan Tack was called up to the U-20 Trinidad and Tobago National Team training camp in preparation for the upcoming Concacaf U20 Championship to be held in Trinidad and Tobago from February 23 to March 2, the club announced today. Chan Tack, U-17 defender, participated in the team camp from December 12, 2023, through January 1, 2024, in Trinidad and Tobago.
“It is great to see Jaden getting invited into the Trinidad and Tobago U-20 training camp,” said Chris Cartlidge, Rapids Academy Technical Director. “He is an individual who works diligently day in and day out and he is fully deserving of this opportunity. Jaden has had a tremendous impact on the U-17 group since joining the academy in the summer of 2023. His professionalism and consistency have made him a leader within the Academy program.”
Chan Tack joined the Colorado Rapids Academy in the summer of 2023 as a U-17 player from former club South Florida SA. During the current MLS NEXT season, Chan Tack has scored one goal and added one assist in 11 appearances for the Rapids U-17 Academy team. His versatility on the pitch as both a left back and a center back has helped the team find success during the first half of the 2023-24 MLS NEXT season.
The Florida native has previously spent time with the U-16 Trinidad and Tobago National Team at training camps. His call up to the U-20s served as his first opportunity to train with the team as they continued preparation for the Concacaf U20 Championship.
