BOCA RATON, Fla.

The six-day tournament will take place November 24-29 at Spanish River Athletic Park, and will feature elite girls teams in the 1996-1999 age groups from each of the four US Youth Soccer regions.
 
The nearly 300 leading players participating in the event have been selected from US Youth Soccer State Association and regional level evaluations. Throughout the week, players will train at practices and compete in matches against other regions, in front of national staff and collegiate coaches to maximize their exposure for selection to the next level of play.

With programs in all 55 US Youth Soccer State Associations, it is available to any player, regardless of hometown or club affiliation. US Youth Soccer ODP has continued its tradition of elite competition and player development for more than 30 years, and is the only development program that can claim members of Major League Soccer, the National Women’s Soccer League, and a majority of current and past national and youth national team members as alumni.

In the second half, Westendorf was able to give Region III more of a cushion when she scored an additional goal in the 45th minute.
