The goal of the 2002/2003's is player development. By keeping larger pools of players, we are providing an opportunity for more players to participate in ODP, take part in exclusive playing opportunities and receive coaching from some of the best coaches in Eastern Pennsylvania. There will be 5 district teams: Lancaster/Harrisburg, Delaware County/Chester County, Allentown/Reading, and Philadelphia/Bucks County.
The 2002/2003's will be competing in one major competition this year. The top 70 players (which is determined at the end of the season in June) will travel to Wilson, North Carolina for the ODP event hosted by North Carolina Youth Soccer.
With the district teams, they will be training at their district locations, which will provide a more convenient training environment and will reduce the amount of traveling required to participate in ODP.
