(Via VSA) – Virginia Soccer Association hosted the first US Club Soccer Player Development Program (PDP) event of 2019.

This event saw hand selected kids from all over Virginia from NOVA to the Beach converge on Long Park on January 6th, 2019.

US Club Soccer’s Player Development Programs (PDPs) are regionally based identification and developmental programs conducted within the id2 Program umbrella. PDPs are focused around the National Premier Leagues (NPL) and other top leagues in specific geographic areas.

PDP invitations are based upon objective scouting of elite clubs and leagues, combined with recommendations from top Directors of Coaching. Each PDP includes at least one training session and one internal competition. Some PDPs also include off-field educational components, as well.

id2 Program staff are on-site at PDP events to scout players for potential inclusion in id2 Training Camps, and U.S. Soccer staff may also be on-site to scout players for potential U.S. National Team inclusion as well as conduct off-the-field lectures, seminars, coaching and other related discussions.

This year’s identification focused on 2008 – 06 Boys & 2007 – 05 Girls at the PDP event.
