Youth Soccer Players Record Attack on Teammate

Jason Scott Headshot

An elite youth soccer team has been temporarily suspended after video surfaced of the 14- and 15-year-olds attacking a teammate in a hotel room.

The Vaughan (Ont.) Soccer Club is part of the Ontario Player Development League, an organization that helps teenage soccer players prepare for the highest levels of the sport by helping them earn collegiate scholarships, spots on provincial or national teams, or professional soccer careers.

The team was on a trip to Italy to take part in a tournament when the video was recorded. It appears to show a group of boys beating a teammate in his hotel room, leaving him curled in the fetal position and moaning in pain.
