SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento Republic FC is partnering with Cal North Olympic Development Program (ODP) to lead the organization's 'Young Olympians' program this summer. The program is designed for youth players of all abilities born between 2009 and 2010 who aspire to play at a high level.
“We are very excited to partner with Cal North and ODP to provide an elite-level training experience for rising youth soccer players,” said Jeremy Williams, Republic FC Director of Soccer Programming. “This partnership allows us to use our platform to assist in identifying and developing talented youth players in communities across Northern California.”
Republic FC’s professional coaching staff will design and lead the programming of the Young Olympians sessions, which will take place in June and August at Mistlin Sports Park in Ripon, Calif. The program provides a pathway to participate in ODP, a national process for identifying and developing the best male and female youth soccer players with the aim of promoting them to the U.S. National Teams.
In addition to the elite-level training, every Young Olympians participant will also receive a complimentary ticket to Republic FC’s October 12th match and a Republic FC training programs t-shirt.
More information, including registration, for the Young Olympians Program is available at http://www.calnorthlive.com/young-olympians.
