HAWAIʻI PDP'S

Hawai'i's Player Development Program (PDP) is the 13th player identification program sanctioned by US Club Soccer, through HSF and our partner, MISO Junior.  PDP's operate under US Club Soccer's id2 Program umbrella—an Olympic Development Program (ODP) approved by the U.S. Olympic Committee and U.S. Soccer.  PDP/id2 was established to provide an opportunity for the country's elite youth soccer players to be identified, developed, and scouted for inclusion in U.S. Soccer's National Team programs—at no cost to players.

Invitations to attend Hawaiʻi PDP's are based on recommendations from top coaches and directors of coaching, combined with objective scouting of elite clubs who participate in HSF Premier and MISO Junior; as well as through participation in the US Club Soccer Hawaiʻi State Cup

Targeted birth years are established every year in consultation with U.S. Soccer, according to the scouting priorities for the 14U National Teams.


PDP CAMP DETAILS

Hawaiʻi PDP Camps are held annually in the fall, where training sessions, internal competitions, and off-field educational components are conducted and overseen by id2 Directors, Gerry McKeown and Tricia Taliaferro. There, players are assessed and identified for potential inclusion in an upcoming id2 Training Camp held in December.  (Note: All ground transport, lodging, meals, and gear are provided at no cost to players).


During the 2017 id2 Training Camp in Casa Grande, Ariz., Dec. 7-10, Gerry McKeown (id2 Boys Program Director) and Tricia Taliaferro (id2 Girls Program Director) answered the following questions:  1) Why do you believe in the id2 Program?  2) What do you look for in an id2 staff coach? 3) What is the most rewarding aspect of directing the id2 Program?

FUNDAMENTALS OF PDP/ID2

1.  Players should be initially scouted within the environment they are most comfortable–i.e, their club training and normal competition environments.
2.  Clubs have the largest impact on player development, which makes club coaches and club competitions an integral part of the PDP/id2 Program.  Recommendations for potential program inclusion may only be made by head coaches and directors of coaching.
3.  Players are rated and evaluated for potential program inclusion based up on a combination of recommendations and information from the players’ regular trainers and coaches; and objective and independent scouting.
4.  There is no cost for players to participate in the PDP/id2 Program.  If invited to the next-level id2 Training Camp, all lodging, meals, and training gear are provided by US Club Soccer and Nike.
 
 

REGIONAL PDP TRAINING EVENTS

OVERVIEW

The purpose of the Regional PDP Training Events is to identify and invite top neighbor island players to participate in the HSF PDP Showcase on Maui (October 2018).  The Regional PDP Training Events feature high level coaching and coaching education–led by NorCal Premier, Director of Scouting, Ian Mork.  The entire program is offered at no charge.

At Regional PDP Training Events, recommended players will join other top players who have been selected as a result of participating in the US Club Soccer Hawaiʻi State Cup*** .  Regional PDP Training Events extend the opportunity to players who did not attend the tournament, or to players who may have participated, however, was not identified.

***For players who were identified and invited to the HSF PDP Showcase as a result of participating in the US Club Soccer Hawaiʻi State Cup, the Regional PDP Training Events serve as an opportunity to play with and against other top players within their age group; and to receive high level coaching and competition in preparation for the HSF PDP Showcase in the Fall.  (I.e., no further scouting/identification is needed.)

Players who are invited to attend the HSF PDP Showcase in October, have the opportunity to be selected to attend a US Club Soccer id2 Training Camp–typically held in the states in December.  See above for more information on Hawai'i PDP's and US Club Soccer's id2 program.
