The inaugural Kåmp Tinituhon, an induction camp for elite U16 and U19 football athletes held last month was a big success said Karl Dodd, Guam National Team Head Coach. Plans to expand the program's offerings for next year already are in motion. "The program offers a structured learning environment where the players are interacting with the national team program and also with the community."

During the induction camp, supported in large part by Mobil Oil Guam, players engaged in training sessions and scrimmages, while also attending classroom sessions to learn about Guam's culture and the Chamorro language with Theresa E.G. Taitano and proper nutrition for young athletes with Lenora Makela from Eat Right Guam. Players also learned about Guam's history with a visit to the T. Stell Newman Museum.
