FRISCO, Texas (Nov. 10, 2016) — US Youth Soccer is proud to announce the participants for the annual US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) Boys Thanksgiving Interregional, set to take place Nov. 24-28 at Grande Sports World in Casa Grande, Ariz.
Rosters: 2002 | 2003
Participating teams will be comprised of elite players in the 2002 and 2003 age groups, from each of the four US Youth Soccer Regions. The event will feature more than 140 of the nation’s top players selected from US Youth Soccer State Association and Regional level evaluations. In each age group, players will attend scheduled training sessions and also compete in matches against each of the other regional teams.
The US Youth Soccer ODP Boys Thanksgiving Interregional annually attracts numerous college coaches, as well as several U.S. Soccer scouts. The talent on display from each team allows coaches and scouts to evaluate players in an environment similar to what they will face at the next level of play.
US Youth Soccer ODP is the original Olympic development program. With programs in all 55 US Youth Soccer State Associations, it is available to any player. US Youth Soccer ODP is the only elite player development program that can claim members of Major League Soccer and the National Women’s Soccer League, as well as the majority of current and past national and youth national team members, as alumni.
