MYSA Players Storm Onto Final NC Olympic Development Program Teamstagbo | May 12, 2013
Several Mebane Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) players made it to the final pool for the North Carolina Youth Soccer Association (NCYSA) Olympic Development Program (ODP). Making it past the final cut means that these players will represent North Carolina at the June ODP sub-Regional event featuring teams from South Carolina and Georgia.
The players, McKenna Snyder, Brigid Blocker, Allison Widderich, Jessica Capes, Kate Burgess, and Madelyn Lloyd attended the ODP tryouts on November 18th. This group builds on the achievements of this past year when three MYSA players made it to the June 2012 ODP sub-regional event with squads from Pennsylvania and Georgia.
According to US Youth Soccer “The US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program was formed in 1977 to identify a pool of players in each age group from which a National Team will be selected for international competition; to provide high-level training to benefit and enhance the development of players at all levels; and, through the use of carefully selected and licensed coaches, develop a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and curriculum to improve all levels of coaching. US Youth Soccer ODP is not only the first and original ODP program but also the only elite player development program that can claim members of Major League Soccer as well as a majority of current and past national and youth team members, as alumni.”
The Mebane Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) provides a variety of affordable, competitive, and developmental soccer programs to youth in Orange, Alamance and surrounding counties. MYSA Travel Team tryouts are being held the week of May 20th.. For more information, visit http://mebanesoccer.us/programs/travel-soccer/tryouts/ or email [email protected]
