Starting last spring hundreds of District VI youth soccer players converged on Cherry Island for tryouts and an eventual chance to make the U.S. Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program.
ODP is a national identification and development program for high-level soccer players. The program identifies and develops players throughout the country to represent their state associations, regions and the United States in soccer competition.
After many tryouts, six El Dorado United players made the State ODP 2012 pool of players. In addition to making the state pool, four El Dorado United players were selected to participate on the Championship Roster and will be traveling to Phoenix, Ariz., to compete in the Region IV ODP Championships, Jan. 14-17
Congratulations go to Ayden Burnett, Jackson Contreras, Garry Valadez and Riley Terando for being selected from the State ODP 2012 pool of players to travel to Phoenix and compete in Region IV ODP Championships.
Congratulations to Noah Sonenstein and Connor Velcelean for making District VI ODP and the State ODP 2012 pool of players.
Congratulations to Julian Garcia, Joey Scotti and Nico Carpignano for making District VI ODP and selected to try out for State ODP.
