Four CVSC Competitive players had the experience of a lifetime as they represented CVSC and CYSA at the USSF’s Olympic Development Program Region IV camps in Idaho and Oregon.
In the Olympic Development Program (ODP), girls and boys from around the country are selected to participate in District, State, Region and National level tryouts to compete for spots on the various teams at each respective level. It is a rigorous, but rewarding process that tests players, beginning at age 12, to compete against the best players in their District, State, Region and the Nation.
Four CVSC U14 players, Jordyn Cunningham, Madison McNamara, Zach Connolly and Diego Ojeda, made the State ODP Team this year in their first year of eligibility (1998 Birth Year) and went on to ODP Regional Camp to compete for a spot on the ODP Region IV team. This was a very big accomplishment and honor for these four players and CVSC. They represented their teams and the Castro Valley Soccer Club very well and we are very proud of them.
We asked each of the players to write about their ODP journey, from initial tryouts all the way through Regional camp.
