Boys Holdover Camp Descriptions

2012 US Youth Soccer ODP Boys Region II Holdover Camps

General holdover Camp Description
At the conclusion of the 1998, 1997 and 1999 Camps, 30-36 players will be selected to remain and participate in the Boys ODP Pool Training Camp to be held in Illinois. The 1998 and 1997 camp attendees will remain in Rockford and the 1999 player will travel to DeKalb to hold camp on the NIU Campus. The 1995 and 1996 Invite Camp will be held in Rockford. The holdover camps will start at the conclusion of the regular camp or Tournament. The two main purposes for the pool training camp are to provide higher level training for all pool participants and to aid in the selection of players to be invited into interregional, national and international events.
The player pool list will be announced immediately following the final camp activity at the closing
ceremony, and will also be posted on the ODP Boys Region II Camp Page. The evening prior to the final camp day, state team coaches must inform the regional age group administrator of any players who may not be able to stay for the holdover camp if selected. Parents will be notified of selection to the pool training camp by their own child or the state team coach. There is no charge to the player for the 1998, 1997, and 1999 holdover camps. The 1995/1996 Invite Camp fee will be $345.
