PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

 

We believe that players should be initially scouted within the environment they are most comfortable–i.e, their club training and normal competition environments; and elite player identification should be provided at no cost to families.

NorCal Premier, Director of Scouting & HSF Technical Consultant for PDP Programming in Hawai'i, Ian Andrew Mork

The purpose of the Regional PDP Training Events in August is to identify and invite top players to the HSF PDP Showcase on Maui (October 13-14).  The Regional PDP Training Events additionally feature a coaching education component–led by NorCal Premier, Director of Scouting, Ian Mork–open to coaches who are interested in developing their own education.  The entire program is being offered at no charge.

Players selected from the Regional PDP Training Events will join other top players who have been selected earlier this spring–during the US Club Soccer Hawai'i State Cup.  The Regional PDP Training Events extend the opportunity to players who did not attend the tournament, or to players who may have participated, however, had not been identified.

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 Camp–typically held in the states in December.  See below for more information on Hawai'i PDP's and US Club Soccer's 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.

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).

MAHALO NUI TO OUR PDP SPONSOR!

Thanks for doing this important work for the kids of Hawaiʻi. I played in HSF (f.k.a. MYSO) for a long time, and it made a difference in my life.
