Nation's top boys invited to elite player identification and development competition

Regional Teams in the 1997 and 1998 age groups along with the U.S. Under-14 National Team Blue and Red squads to participate
FRISCO, Texas (November 10, 2011) - Top national talent will converge on the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif., for the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) Boys Fall Interregional. Teams from US Youth Soccer's four regions will compete Nov. 25-28, 2011. In addition to the 1997 and 1998 US Youth Soccer ODP Boys regional teams, the event will also feature the Under-14 U.S. National Team Blue and Red squads. 
 
Continuing its tradition of elite competition and player development, youth from the nation's top player identification program, US Youth Soccer ODP, will train and compete in front of national staff and collegiate coaches to maximize their exposure for selection to the next level of play. More US Youth Soccer ODP players have been called into Youth National Team camps than any other identification program, including 129 of 148 players called into U-14, U-15, U-17 and U-18 camps since September 2011.
 
Former Under-14 Boys U.S. National Development Program head coach Manny Schellscheidt believes, "Over the years, US Youth Soccer ODP has played a meaningful role in player development in the United States as it provides elite players from across the nation with valuable experience and a platform to improve. Our staff always enjoys a chance to attend an event which brings players together from different regions around the country. There is always good competition, and when you're able to evaluate players in these scenarios, you have a better idea of how they will fare as they attempt to reach the next level in their careers."
 
Rosters for the US Youth Soccer ODP Boys Fall Interregional will be released on Thursday, November 17, 2011. For more information on the US Youth Soccer ODP Boys Fall Interregional, including scores, schedules and more, visit www.USYouthSoccer.org.
 
US Youth Soccer ODP is known as the premier identification and development program for the nation's youth seeking the opportunity to compete at the national, professional and collegiate levels of play.
 
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 and Women's Professional Soccer, as well as a majority of current and past national and youth team members, as alumni.
