2018 South ODP Holdover Banner

FRISCO, Texas (July 19, 2018)
 – North Texas Soccer was well represented in the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP) Regional Pools in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Players first competed on North Texas Soccer ODP teams at the ODP Regional Trials, which took place in the 2002-04 Boys and Girls age groups, before 14 players were chosen to participate in the Regional Holdover Camp

As a member of the ODP Region III pool, the 14 North Texas Soccer players are now eligible to attend regional camps, interregional US Youth Soccer ODP events and even participate in international trips.

Among the players selected was Ethan Orozco, who has represented Region III on international trips and at the 2016 US Youth Soccer Thanksgiving Interregional. Orozco recently won the 2017 US Youth Soccer National Championships while playing with Solar 02 Stricker, and along with fellow holdover teammate, Johnathan Sauceda will look to repeat as national champions at the 2018 US Youth Soccer National Championships.

Holdovers Roman Torres, Diego Ramirez and Cole Hudson represented North Texas Soccer at the 2018 US Youth Soccer Southern Regional Championships. Torres and Ramirez reached the 16-Under Boys final with FC Dallas 02 Premier, while Hudson and his Odyssey 02 side fell to eventual champions 02 NCFC Elite (NC) in the quarterfinals.

North Texas Soccer ODP creates a positive, competitive and inspiring learning environment that is unique and conducive to the enhanced development of players and coaches, ultimately preparing as many players as possible for the State, Regional, & National Team level and the international arena.
