Mark Litton (Racine St. Catherine's/UW-Parkside) will coach a U.S. team at the Under-19 Stuttgart Junior Cup this weekend in Germany.

The indoor tournament at the Crystal Palace Arena features 15-minute mini-games of 6v6 soccer on a 50 x 30-meter field with no walls.

The U.S. is the only national team in the event and will play in Group A along with club teams Lechia Danzig (Poland), VfB Stuttgart (Germany) and FSV Mainz 05 (Germany). Group B consists of Lazio (Italy), Celtic (Scotland), SC Freiburg (Germany) and Hamburger SV (Germany).

Litton is the goalkeeper coach for the U.S. Futsal national team and the Milwaukee Wave of the Major Indoor Soccer League and serves in the same capacity as a volunteer for the UW-Milwaukee men's program.

  • University of Wisconsin defender AJ Cochran, a unanimous selection on the Big Ten Conference All-Freshman team last fall, was one of 36 players called in to a U.S. Under-20 national team camp that started Monday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Cochran, who previously has been a part of the Under-18 national team, was one of 15 college players selected by coach Tab Ramos for the eight-day training camp. "AJ's involvement with the national team program is very exciting for the coaching staff and his teammates here at Wisconsin," UW coach John Trask said in a news release. "AJ had a great first year with us and to see him be called in by Tab, the new U-20 national team coach, shows that he's on the radar of the Federation and hopefully he'll enjoy a great soccer experience down in South Florida."
