The goal of the U13 age group (2004) 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 3 district teams: Lehigh Valley, Lancaster/Harrisburg and Philadelphia Area (Delaware County/Chester County/Bucks County).
The 2004's will be competing in two major competitions this year. The Virginia Friendlies in February in Williamsburg Virginia and the Region One ODP Tournament scheduled in June in Mercer County New Jersey.
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.
