I’m again in the fight to make Florida’s U17 ODP Team. We are down to 35 players and in April the team that will represent Florida will be announced when they make the final cuts. I’ve been having excellent practices and even better scrimmages so I like my chances. Played against my buddy Jason Nicolette, who actually made the team for the U16.
The mission of the ODP Program is to identify players for our men’s and women’s Youth National Teams. The selection process takes place through state, regional and national events.
The primary benefit to the player is to be able to train, play, and compete against the best players in their age group. This allows the best players to be with the best in order to further their development as soccer players.
