Cal South’s Boys 2001 and Girls 2000 and 2001 ODP teams are in Phoenix to proudly represent the Southern California region at the 2017 US Youth Soccer ODP Championships that will kick off this Friday, March 3 at the Reach 11 Sports Complex.
The competition will kick off with a knockout Semifinal match between teams. The winning teams will move on to Sunday’s final, while the remaining teams will play consolation games also on Sunday.
In early January 2017, a total of eight Cal South ODP teams were crowned champions at the US Youth Soccer Region IV Championships that also took place in the same location. Only the 2000 and 2001 age groups would move on to the national championships where they will face their Minnesota, Florida, Virginia, New York West, and Iowa ODP counterparts.
In 2016, Cal South clinched three ODP National Championships, with Cal South’s 2000 Girls team with the opportunity to clinch their second consecutive national title. In the tournament’s history, Cal South has claimed a total of 34 ODP National Championships.
