2008 US Youth Soccer ODP Girls U-15/U-16 Developmental Camp | Schedule

US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) Girls will hold their third U-15 (93s) / U-16 (92s) Developmental Camp in Pomona, Calif., from Wednesday, February 20 to Monday, February 25.

In attendance will be 160 invitation-only campers. The camp will be a scramble format with functional training, Small-Sided Games, street soccer, guest speakers and mini round-robin tournament on the final day. The developmental camp focuses on Small-Sided Games so that the players are highlighted as individuals.

"US Youth Soccer ODP realizes the importance of laying the groundwork for tactical and technical development of our young players," said John Ellinger, US Youth Soccer Technical Director. "It is important that the experience for the players be positive and especially in these developmental camp situations. What our players learn in this initial set up can set the tone for their future developmental progress."

Initially created in 1977 as the US Youth Soccer Select Team Program, US Youth Soccer ODP was formed to identify a pool of players in each age group from which a National Team could be selected for international competition. The girls program was added in 1985. Players try out to qualify for the program's high-level training from carefully selected and licensed coaches through a series of trials at their local, State Association and then Regional levels. Those selected are exposed to the nation's best coaches, trainers and facilities.
 
US Youth Soccer ODP is the original Olympic development program and the only elite player development program that can claim members of Major League Soccer as well as a majority of current and past national and youth team members, as alumni. And, with programs in all 55 State Associations as well as regional and national championships and participation in international tournaments, US Youth Soccer ODP continues to lead the way.
