Final US Club Soccer id2 Training Camp of 2017 concludes in Arizona
CASA GRANDE, Ariz. | The final id2 Training Camp of 2017 was held at Grande Sports World in Arizona from December 7-10. This also officially marks the conclusion of the training camp portion of the id2 age group cycle targeting 2004 boys and 2003 girls.
As is customary for the fall and winter id2 camps, scouting extends to 2004 girls, as well, to accommodate upcoming U.S. Soccer Federation’s youth national team programming on the girls side. Beyond these two remaining camps, US Club Soccer will invite top performers from this entire age group cycle to participate in id2 National Selection programming: the id2 National Selection International Tour (Spring 2018 for boys) and the ECNL/id2 National Training Camp (Summer 2018 for girls).
Established in 2004, US Club Soccer’s id2 Program provides an opportunity for the country’s elite youth soccer players to be identified and developed, and scouted for inclusion in U.S. Soccer’s National Team programs. id2Program directors Gerry McKeown (boys) and Tricia Taliaferro (girls) implement curriculum and direct activities. The id2 Program is an Olympic Development Program (ODP) approved by the United States Olympic Committee and the U.S. Soccer Federation. There is no cost for players to participate or be scouted, and all meals, lodging and gear are provided by US Club Soccer and Nike.
