Nevada has partnered with Cal North to offer a "Sub-Regional camp". This event will take place in Sacramento, California the location/fields are currently being negotiated, but these events are OPEN to ALL ODP participants born in 1997 - 2000. Not only ODP pool players, but any player that tried out for the ODP team!
These events are bring held for the Regional staff to have the ability to see all possible players to invite to the ODP camp or to invite into the ODP Regional pool. This way if you do not receive an invitation to camp you can possible receive one through this avenue. Additionally, if you DID receive an invitation you can attend to continue to work on your soccer skills with Regional coaches, or with some of the highest level of training possible.
I have included the link to register for this Sub-Regional camp below.
The camp dates are June 7 - June 9th, and the cost is only $75!
Transportation and housing is NOT included, and everyone will be responsible for their own, however I am working with Cal North when they secure some Hotel blocks they will let me know and I will post them on our State's web-site to offer a lower group rate for everyone.
Please don't mis-understand, this camp is NOT mandatory to attend, just an opportunity for additional training with college coaches and very high level training at a reasonable cost.
ALSO - REMEMBER THIS CAMP IS FOR PLAYERS BORN IN 1997 - 2000 ONLY!

The Sub-regional event is a GOOD thing for our players to attend! The
opportunity to work with college coaches with a high level of training at a
reasonable cost is good for our players, and Cal North was gracious enough
to include and invite us in their event.
If you are planning to attend ODP summer camp, you CAN attend the sub-regional camp, and it will NOT jeopardize your place for the ODP Regional camp if youshow poorly there for some reason. If you have been invited to attend Regional Camp, and pay to attend, nothing changes, nor is that opportunity taken away from you.
Decisions made at the sub-regional camp by the Region IV staff will not
be processed or conveyed until after the completion of the camp, and will be
sent out via e-mail the following week regarding those further selected to attend the ODP summer camps.
Here is a little more information about a sub-regional event from Region IV;
Region IV Is pleased to announce the "Official Designation" to the following
events as: ODP Sub Regional Events. Region IV ODP Staff will be in
attendance to identify and select players to participate in ODP at the
Regional level. ODP Sub Regional Events are not meant to "compete" or
"replace" ODP summer camps, but enhance the selection process for the elite
players in Region IV.
If a player attends the sub-regional even they can possibly be asked
to become part of the Regional pool from attending the sub-regional camp
without attending the summer camp.
If your player can not attend summer camp, due to dates conflicts, the
sub-regional events are a way to be selected to the Regional pool without
attending regional summer camps.
Finally here is some standard information about the ODP program if you
haven't already read it.
About US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) - US
Youth Soccer ODP, established in 1977, is the original Olympic development
program in the United States. Formed to identify a pool of players in each
age group from which a National Team could be selected for international
competition, selected players are exposed to the nation's top coaches from
collegiate institutions, U.S. Soccer and the professional leagues. Programs
exist in each state and with competitions such as the US Youth Soccer ODP
National Championships, Interregional Training/Competition, Regional Camps
and International play. US Youth Soccer ODP continues to lead the way in
elite player identification and development. US Youth Soccer ODP is an
approved program of the U.S. Soccer Federation.
The different levels of the ODP program are as follows;
A. Level 6 - State Pool
B. Level 5 - State Team
C. Level 4 - Regional Pool
D. Level 3 - Regional Team
E. Level 2- National Pool
F. Level 1 - National Team
Nevada requested Region IV to "invite" all players listed on our State's
web-site; team players and alternates to the regional camp this summer, both
boys and girls.
If you have received an invitation and are planning on attending you will need to keep checking the Regional ODP web-site, www.regioniv.com for updates and registration process. The states will no longer be in charge of collecting funds or making arrangements for camp. However we WILL be asked to provide chaperons, so if you are interested in being a chaperon, please let me know so I can forward your name to the Regional administrator. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The boy's camp will be at the same location as before in MCMinnville, Oregon at the same college, Linfield College, and the dates will be June 27 - July 3 for 2000 age group, and July 4 - July 10 for 1999 & 1998 age groups, and July 11 - July 17 for 1996 & 1997 age groups.
The girl's camp will be at a new location this year, in Pomona, California at Cal Poly Pomona, and the dates will be July 1 - 4 for 1996, 1997 & 1998 players age groups and July 5 - 8 for 1999 and 2000 age groups.
Nevada is no longer registering players to summer camp, that is done now
directly through Region IV, and information regarding registration,
location, dates, and camp fees will come directly from them via e-mail
through the invitation process.
GIRL'S CURRENT CAMP INFORMATION FOR 2013
This year the camp participants are not made through the State's nor does each State offer player "lists" for camp. The Regional staff that has been at the ODP Championships and Subregional events make notes of players and offer those discovered players are sent "invitations" to the ODP camp.
From this summer ODP camp, selections are made to the Regional ODP camp, which from those players selections are made for the National ODP camp, and from that the selections are made for youth National teams.
Cycle one for our three oldest age groups (96,97,98) is July 1-4, and cycle two for the youngest two age groups (99,00) will be July 5-8. The camp this year has been moved this year to Cal Poly, Pomona, California. The closest airport to the campus is Ontario.
Does a player have to attend all try out times to be considered? NO, abosolutely not! A player can attend just one or all four sessions depending on their schedule, the price is the same.
My player was in the Regional pool, do they have to try out again? YES, in order to be considered for a team this year EVERYONE must try out each year.
What is "Regional pool" or Region IV? The United States is divided up into 4 Regions with approximately 12-13 states in each. Each State is given the opportunity to select up to 18 players per age group to represent their State in different events that Regional Coaches attend and identify players that could be selected for the "Regional Pool", or even Regional team, that will be evaluated for the National Pool and team. A "pool" of players is more than the 18 that are on a team, coaches use this to finalize their selections to a "team". The Region IV web-site is www.regioniv.com
What age can my player try out? Each year there are ONLY 5 years that are evaluated during try outs. We allow one year younger, but no more than that. This year the ages are '96, '97, '98, '99, and '00
That means that, this year, we can not have players born in 2002 or younger attend these try outs.
How are the 2001's evaluated if there is no team for them? 2001's that attend, but will be evaluated along side the 00's players for a spot on the '00 team.
If my player plays on a '97 team, but was born in '98 which try out do they attend? You child will be evaluated on THEIR birth year, not what team they currently play for, so they should attend the 1998 try outs.
What is the ODP Championships? It is a tournament in which all of the Region IV ODP teams participate to see which state has the top team and players. In the past it's been held in Arizona, this year the ODP Championship Tournament will be held in Las Vegas.
Will my player have to miss school to attend the tournament? Unfortunately, yes, the ODP Championships is a three day tournament beginning on Friday, January 11 through Sunday, January 13th. The first games for some of the teams starting at 8am on Friday, the 11th, and all teams in the tournament will play sometime on Friday, so it will be necesary to take Friday 1/11 off.
If my player makes the team, what are the additional costs? A one-time ODP team fee of only $250. (This does NOT include any necessary travel for your player.)
What is the ODP team fee for? The cost for ODP includes; tournament fees, pre-tournament training, coaches travel, and uniforms. (sweats will be offered for an additional cost)
Pre-tournament training? Where is it and is it mandatory? The additional college coach training is NOT mandatory, however, this is where some of the coaches meet their team that they might be coaching during the ODP Championship tournament. These trainings will be during the week of the tournament January 7 - 9th, in the evenings, in Las Vegas and Reno, and it IS already included in the one ODP team fee.
I live in the North, can we opt to attend trainings in Las Vegas? Yes, anyone that makes a team CAN attend the trainings in Las Vegas prior, but it will be during the week and you player would miss school. Additionally, we will be asking all Northern players to make their travel arrangements accordingly to be able to attend the Thursday evening training session. (times TBA shortly)
If my player from the North makes the team and we can only afford to send him/her and we don't attend who will take care of them? Players from the North that make the State ODP team will be offered the option to be housed with a Southern players for the tournament. They will be taken to and from the fields with their Vegas teammate, and stay with them. I, Stacy Ojers, will give out my flight information to those that make the team from the North, so that anyone that would like to can travel with me and I will make sure that they are handed off to the family that they will be staying with. This way the Northern players can keep their costs as low as possible.
What if I am planning to travel with my player, do I have to stay in any specific hotel? No, you can make your own hotel/travel arrangements.
