Sandy, UT 8/16/2017
The 2017 ODP Region IV Player Pools have been announced. The player pools consist of players who participated in ODP last year either through Region IV Championships or a sub-regional event. After these events players who have been selected attend a Region IV camp. The list of players comes from the camp participants.
The player pool is the next step towards being selected as one of the final 18 players for Region IV. The final 18 players will form a team and take on the other 3 regions within the United States. It is quite the accomplishment to even make the player pool as it is a recognition of being one of the top players out of multiple states, in our case the 14 westernmost state associations.
UYSA Director of Coaching, Eric Landon had this to say about the players selected, "We are incredibly proud of all of our players who have been selected to these player pools. It takes hardwork, determination, and skill to make these player pools. To have 65 players across 11 pools is a testament to the state of soccer in Utah and the talent level of our athletes."
