Melton Hailey with TSCH 98 has been selected to play for US Youth Soccer's Region III at the 2013 ODP Girls National Training Camp

US Youth Soccer has announced the attendees and schedule for the 2013 US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) Girls National Training Camp, taking place January 31-February 2, at Reach 11 Sports Complex in Phoenix, Ariz. Girls from the 1997, 1998, and 1999 age groups will represent all four regions.

Invitation-only players will have the opportunity to work with some of the nation’s top coaches to improve their playing abilities. The developmental 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. The camp aims to enhance players’ 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, the nation's original player identification program, 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 and the Men’s and Women’s National Teams.
