South Valley's ODP Player Update
Kristen Amarikwa and Reigna Banks, members of the South Valley G97 team, made the Cal South ODP Winter pool. These players are the first girls to be chosen from Bakersfield since Erica Shelton was selected around 10 years ago. Erica Shelton now coaches one of our G05 teams. The ODP pool consists of the top 26 players in Southern California from all Cal South clubs. The girls will spend the month of December training with the team in preparation for the the US Youth Soccer ODP Region IV Championships that will be held in Phoenix, Arizona, from Jan 8th – 11th . If the Cal South team wins in Phoenix, they will have the opportunity to compete in the ODP National Championships that are held in Frisco, Texas, from February 27th – March 1st .
