US Club Soccer’s Player Development Programs (PDPs) are regionally based identification and developmental programs conducted within the id2 Program umbrella. PDPs are focused around top leagues in specific geographic areas throughout the country. Twin Cities Soccer Leagues is pleased to present this programming to TCSL member clubs.
PDP invitations are based upon objective scouting of elite clubs and leagues, combined with recommendations from Directors of Coaching. Each PDP includes at least one training session and one internal competition.
Established in 2004, US Club Soccer’s id2 National Identification and Development Program provides an opportunity for the country’s elite youth soccer players to be identified and developed, and scouted for inclusion in U.S. Soccer’s National Team programs. id2 Program directors Gerry McKeown (boys) and Tricia Taliaferro (girls) implement curriculum and direct activities.
Selected players from TCSL’s PDP will be invited to a id2 regional identification camp, held in the Spring of 2018. There is no cost to players identified for the id2 program/camp.
All lodging, meals and training gear are provided at no cost by US Club Soccer and Nike.
