FRISCO, Texas (Jan. 23, 2014) – US Youth Soccer is proud to announce the attendees and schedule for the 2014 US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program Girls National Training Camp, taking place Jan. 27-31 at Reach 11 Sports Complex in Phoenix, Ariz.

More than 200 athletes from the 1998, 1999 and 2000 age groups have been invited. In addition to numerous college coaches, U.S. Soccer will have representation at the Girls National Camp to offer enhanced development and education opportunities for these top players and coaches.  

The Girls National Training Camp focuses on highlighting players’ individual talents as well as providing them with new tools and ideas through challenging daytime training and small-sided games. Players will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the nation’s top coaches to enhance their problem solving skills within the game, and better their technical and tactical abilities so they leave feeling confident in their performance.

US Youth Soccer ODP has continued its tradition of elite competition and player development for more than 30 years, and is the only development program that can claim members of Major League Soccer, the National Women’s Soccer League, and a majority of current and past national and youth national team members as alumni. US Youth Soccer ODP is the nation's original player identification program, and with programs in all 55 US Youth Soccer State Associations, is available to any player, regardless of hometown or club affiliation.

The ODP page of our web site will have the most up to date information.  Be sure and check this page regularly.

TEXTING LINK:  This link allows you to join a free text messaging service. OSA will not see the telephone number. Director of Coaching Kurt Luitwieler will use this database to contact ODP players for the most current information about ODP events.




If you know of teammates that should be coming out, please invite them.  Registration is ongoing. 
Use this link: 
REGISTRATION

As part of registration, players will be given at first session, training kits.  This will be 2 Numbered Jerseys (1 red and 1 white) and a shorts.  We will alternate colors after the first session.  Numbers are 1-500 so every player has a unique number. First come first serve, but they are mostly already printed and by size, so if you wear a Large, you will likely not be able to get the #7 you usually wear.

What to wear to first session? If you were in the program last year, wear your orange training top. If not, whatever practice gear you prefer until you receive your training kit.

We will not be taking any forms onsite, so please mail, fax or email your information to the Tulsa office. Email is easiest (
bethann@oksoccer.com).  If you do not have your player forms submitted before our first training center session, it's not a problem, but do please remit your forms as soon as you are able.  (Make sure to register online as well as send forms.)

Forms required for registration (all are found on the US Youth link below but there are 2 pages of forms): FORMS

Code of Conduct
Medical Release
Medical History
Player Data Form
A copy of medical insurance card (front and back) is also required.

Training sessions and Player Development Events will be the evaluation tool to see if the players will make the Oklahoma State ODP team.  Any registered player can come to any training session (does not matter gender or if east/west).
