Congratulations to Juliet Moncho, a Forward with OFC 01 from Edmond, OK who has been selected for the ODP National 2000 Girls team. The 2015 US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program Girls National Training Camp takes place on Jan. 22-27, 2015 at Seminole Soccer Complex in Sanford, FL. 

 More than 200 top athletes have been selected from the 1999, 2000, 2001 age groups to represent each of the four US Youth Soccer Regions. Training will be led by U.S. Soccer Staff Coach and Marantha Baptist University Coach, Jeff Pill, who has over 40 years of experience in the sport and has worked with the Women’s National Teams. Numerous college coaches as well as U.S. Soccer scouts including U.S. Soccer Technical Director April Heinrichs will attend the National Training Camp throughout the week.

All-Star Teams Announced for the 2014 US Youth Soccer ODP Boys Winter Interregional 

US Youth Soccer announced the US Youth Soccer ODP All-Star teams for the 2014 US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program Boys Winter Interregional, which recently took place Dec. 18-21 at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. Of the nearly 200 players that participated in the event, three rosters were constituted based on outstanding performance – one for 1997, 1998 and 1999 age groups.


Among the top leading goal scorers in the tournament were Region III’s Tyler Dacaret and Region I's Riley Strassner in the 1998 age group along with Region III's Dante Brigida in the 1999 age group, who all scored three goals. Region III and Region I won the most games, garnering five wins in competitions across all three age groups. Region I sat alone at the top of the 1997 age group while Region III took home the 1998 and 1999 crowns.
 

With programs in all 55 US Youth Soccer State Associations, US Youth Soccer ODP, the original Olympic development program, is available to any player. US Youth Soccer ODP is the only elite player development program that can claim members of Major League Soccer, the National Women’s Soccer League, and the majority of current and past national and youth national team members, as alumni.
