ODP 2015 Region 1 Pool

Local Youth Players selected for US Youth Soccer ODP Region 1 Pool

Local St. Mary's Soccer (SMS) talents Luke Kokolios and John Croxson were recently selected for the US Youth Soccer (USYS) Olympic Development Program (ODP) Region 1 player pool for their respective age groups (1999 and 2002 age groups).  Each age-group pool consists of approximately 40 players identified during the Regional Identification camp held in July at Rider University in New Jersey.  Players for the pool were selected from among approximately 250 state-level ODP players that comprise Region 1, which spans the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern states.  Region 1 coaches select teams from the pool to play in an interregional and international tournament.  Kokolios plays for the SMS Rangers (U16 Boys) coached by Alex Kokolios and Croxson plays for the SMS Wolf Pack (U14 Boys)  coached by Doug Harris.  Both teams compete in Division 1 of their respective age groups in the National Capital Soccer League (NCSL) as well as in state and regional tournaments.  Kokolios also plays for the Leonardtown High School Varsity soccer team coached by Dave Holland.
