FULLERTON, Calif. (Wednesday, December 28, 2016) -  Cal South PRO+ has announced the rosters for its 2000-2001-2002-2003-2004 Boys and Girls PRO+ | Olympic Development Program (ODP) teams that will represent Southern California at the US Youth Soccer Region IV ODP Championships from January 4-8, 2017 at the Reach 11 Sports Complex in Phoenix. Cal South will compete with the other 13 Western states that make up US Youth Soccer's Region IV for the 2017 Region IV ODP Championships. The schedule for all games can be found below. 

Cal South PRO+/ODP teams have won an astounding 76 of a possible 96 Regional Championships for which it has competed in the last nine years, and 39 out of 44 in the past four years, including 9 out of 10 titles in both 2012, 2013 and 10 out of 10 in 2014, 2015.

"I always put the success of our PRO+ | ODP teams at these events 100% on the fantastic clubs and coaches throughout Cal South who train these players day to day," said Steve Hoffman, Cal South's Director of Coaching Education and Player Development. "It is because of all their remarkable efforts in guiding and developing these players that Cal South PRO+|ODP gets an opportunity to show the rest of the country, on both a regional and national level, how rich Southern California is in soccer talent."

"I feel that every club that has a player in the PRO+ Program and not just the Players traveling to Phoenix for the 2017 USYS ODP Regional Championships, but in our overall player pools throughout the year is what makes Cal South Pro+ the National success it is. All of our clubs, coaches and parents should be proud of the job they are doing with player development."

Teams in the 2000 and 2001 Boys and Girls age groups are competing for a chance to move on to the 2017 US Youth Soccer ODP Championships from March 2nd through 5th, also at the Reach 11 Sports Complex in Phoenix.

"We tell our players the same thing every year: ‘performance equals success,’” Hoffman continued. "If you consistently play well and to your full potential, the results will be there."
