FULLERTON, CA (February 6, 2022) – Cal South is very pleased to announce the boys and girls that have been selected for the Cal South Pro+ Olympic Development Program [ODP] Spring 2022 Training Pools in the 2010 and 2011 age groups.
These two age groups (2010 and 2011) are currently the two youngest in the program. The players selected to each age group will attend a two-day Training Center later this month which will consist of up to 5 training sessions per age group on each date. The Training Center weekend for the 2011 Boys and Girls will be held on Feb. 19-20, while the 2011 Boys and Girls will train on the weekend of Feb 26-27. Both sessions will be held at Ventura College, 4700 Telegraph Road in Ventura.
“We are quite lucky in Cal South to have very good clubs who are developing a large concentration of excellent players,” said Cal South Technical Director, Steve Hoffman. “The spring cycle for PRO+ ODP is all about potential and development. This is the start of a journey for these young players on a potential pathway to advancement toward the State, Regional, and National Teams; and of course, this is also Step One on the college recruiting pathway.”
