Berrodin ('05) Excels in ODP Program


CESC 2005 player Steven Berrodin has spent the last 8 months participating in the NJYS pre-ODP program "Club NJYS". The Club NJYS program offers standout players a way to familiarize themselves with the ODP format as early as their U11 year.

Steven took full advantage of his opportunity, training over the Winter and Spring months with some of the top players in the Southern New Jersey area and beyond.

The Club NJYS program culminated with a Festival Day, held in late April, in which all of the programs participants from across the state convened for a series of small-sided games. Unbeknownst to the day's participants, the boys were all being evaluated for the program's next step.

From the state-wide pool of approximately 100 players, 16 would be chosen to face off against the NY Red Bulls U-11 academy team.

We are happy to announce that Steven was selected and enjoyed the experience of a lifetime on Friday, June 3rd, when he and his Club NJYS teammates took on the youth Red Bulls side.

The Cape Express Soccer Club has had several players and a couple of coaches who have taken part in this prestigious program.

Have you looked into the ODP program for your player yet?
