The Washington Youth Soccer Elite Player Development (EPD) program competed at the 2016 US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP) Region IV Championships earlier this year in Phoenix, Ariz.  The top players in the state represented WA in the 1999-2003 boys and girls age groups against the other 13 western states.  WA EPD teams not only brought home four of the 10 tournament championships, with the 1999 Boys advancing to the National ODP Championships next week, but it was a successful reintroduction of the Eastern Washington EPD program and a total of 24 WA players were named to the All-Tournament Team with hundreds of collegiate, professional, ODP Regional Team and U.S. National Team scouts in attendance.  The Tournament Teams were selected from US Youth Soccer Regional ODP Coach evaluations.

EPD serves as an identification program for opportunities with U.S. Soccer National Teams and ODP Regional Teams, and mimics the National Team system by bringing together the top players from club programs to train and compete. In the last two years more than 20 WA Youth Soccer EPD players have been called into U.S. Youth National Team camps. The EPD program seeks to create a world class learning and development environment that shares the values and vision of U.S. Soccer, U.S. Youth Soccer, and Washington Youth Soccer.  The 2015-2016 EPD coaching staff includes Sounders FC, Reign FC and numerous collegiate coaches and club directors.
