Ninth grader Aidan Dayton has made the national olympic development program (ODP) all-star team in soccer. He competed with hundreds in Utah to make the Utah ODP team, then competed with over 200 boys in Oregon to make the western region team and finally competed in late December with 75 boys from all over the country to make the national team. Congratulations Aidan on this outstanding achievement!

According to the ODP website, the US Youth Soccer ODP Boys Winter Interregional featured players that were selected from US Youth Soccer State Association and regional level evaluations. Throughout the three-day event, players trained at practices and competed in matches in front of national staff and collegiate coaches for the opportunity to be selected to a higher level of play.

The ODP reports that the US Youth Soccer is the nation's original player identification program. With programs in all 55 US Youth Soccer State Associations, it is available to any player, regardless of hometown or club affiliation. US Youth Soccer ODP has continued its tradition of elite competition and player development for more than 30 years, and is the only development program that can claim members of Major League Soccer, the National Women’s Soccer League, and a majority of current and past national and youth national team members as alumni.
