Eagerly seeking the top youth talent in the country, collegiate coaches will observe the US Youth Soccer ODP Championship players during these matches. The participants represent the future of American soccer at the collegiate and international levels.

The US Youth Soccer ODP Championships includes US Youth Soccer ODP State teams in the 1994 and 1995 age groups. US Youth Soccer is divided into four regions, Region I (East), Region II (Midwest), Region III (South) and Region IV (West) to assist in national competitions.
