CHARLESTON, S.C. (Via US Club Soccer) – Both spring US Club Soccer id2 Training Camps of the current cycle, which targets boys born in 2003 and girls born in 2002, will span both coasts of the country.

The Glendale Sports Complex in Glendale, Calif., serves as the host of the first camp, March 17-20. Less than a month later, the second camp will be held at the WRAL Soccer Center in Raleigh, N.C., April 7-10.

While Glendale is a new venue to the id2 Program, Raleigh is a familiar host of US Club Soccer’s national identification and development program. It will be the third consecutive year a spring id2 camp is held at the WRAL Soccer Center and fourth all-time.

Concurrently, recommendations of top boys born in 2003 and girls born in 2002 are being accepted for the spring camps. Any Director of Coaching is encouraged to submit recommendations for players in the current age group cycle with national team potential. These recommendations will supplement US Club Soccer’s scouting process. US Club Soccer will begin distributing invitations for both spring camps onFeb. 1, so DOCs are encouraged to submit recommendations as soon as possible.

The id2 Program provides an opportunity for the country’s elite youth soccer players to be identified, developed and scouted for inclusion in U.S. Soccer’s national team programs. Targeted birth years are established every year in consultation with U.S. Soccer in order to align with the scouting priorities for youth national teams.

There is no cost to players to be identified for or participate in the id2 Program. For id2 Training Camps, all lodging, meals and training gear are provided at no cost by US Club Soccer and Nike. The id2 Program, open to all players regardless of U.S. Soccer affiliation or lack thereof, is an Olympic Development Program approved by the United States Olympic Committee and U.S. Soccer Federation.
