Girls Holdover Camp Descriptions

2012 US Youth Soccer ODP Girls Region II Holdover Camps

General Holdover Camp Description
At the conclusion of the 2012 U S Youth Soccer ODP Girls Region II 1995 & 1996 Tournament and the 1997 Camp, 30-36 players will be selected to remain and participate in the Pool Training Camp to be held in DeKalb, IL. 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 and national events.
The player pool list will be announced immediately following the final camp activity at the closing
ceremony, and will also be posted the ODP Girls Region II Camp Page. The evening prior to the final
day of play at camp or the tournament, state team coaches must inform the regional age group administrator of any players who may not be able to stay for the Invite camp if selected. Parents will be notified of selection to the training camp by their own child or the state team coach. The 1995 & 1996 tournament players selected will be bused from Rockford to DeKalb with their team administrators for the camp. The 1997 Camp players will remain in DeKalb.
