BOCA RATON, Fla. (November 29, 2013) – The 2013 US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) Girls Thanksgiving Interregional concluded today at Spanish River Athletic Park in Boca Raton, Fla. with the 1996 and 1997 age groups. The six-day tournament featured elite girls teams in the 1996-1999 age groups from each of the four US Youth Soccer regions.
 
Among the top leading goal scorers in the tournament were: Region I’s Jenna Bike from the 1998 age group with four goals; Region IV’s Theresa Boade from the 1999 age group with four goals; and top tournament scorer Sophia Serafin, also from the Region IV 1999 age group with five goals. Region IV exceeded by winning the most games out of any other region, garnering seven wins in competitions across all age groups.
 
The nearly 300 leading players that participated in the event were selected from US Youth Soccer State Association and regional level evaluations. Throughout the week, players trained at practices and competed 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.
 
As the girls conclude, the boys commence with the 2013 US Youth Soccer ODP Boys Thanksgiving Interregional, taking place November 30-December 2 at the Grande Sports World Complex in Casa Grande, Ariz.
