We are happy to announce that six Juventus Academy Los Angeles players have been selected to the Spring pool for the Calsouth Pro+ ODP Program.
The selected players are:
G2011 - Lily Kennedy
B2011 - Seth Yadidi, Roman Soltani, Malcolm Horsman, Alberto Aguilar and Chibuikem Agha.
The Olympic Developmental Program (ODP) identifies high caliber players and provides these players with the opportunity to compete at the next level for the purpose of having a higher probability of reaching the U.S. National Team. Players are selected for this program based on their current technique, tactics, fitness and athletic ability, and psychological component (attitude). The ultimate goals for players identified by ODP are to help develop and advance players in their aspirations in reaching college teams, professional and international teams. The ODP regularly places 40% of its players into the U.S. National Team player pools. Every year, in the winter, spring and summer, Calsouth identifies a pool of players for each age group and trains them for a few weeks until they finalize a roster of players that competes against ODP programs of other states, until a National Champion is declared.
