Julia, Raich is a member of the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP) Team and was selected to participate in the US Youth Soccer ODP National Training Camp. This program is the first step towards making the U.S. National/Olympic Team Pools.
The top 23 players in the country (in the combined age group 2003/2002) will be participating. Selected players will be traveling to Tampa, Florida on January 23, 2020 through January 28, 2020 to attend the US Youth Soccer ODP National Training Camp. The Regional Staff and the ODP Scouting Network will evaluate players throughout the event. These events strengthen players’ skills and prepare them for future competitions and hopefully, a place on the U.S. National Team. This type of competition is necessary for the serious player who aspires to reach the National and Olympic teams. The educational and athletic opportunity presented help a player grow and mature in the sport and in life. College coaches and scouts will also be in attendance evaluating the players.
