Northern Virginia Boys Earn Four National ODP Selections
Royals and NOVA FC Grab Top Spots at SYL North American Combine
United Soccer Leagues unveiled its 2011 Super Y-League Boys Olympic Development Camp select teams this week, honoring the players in the 94-95 and 96-97 age groups that had standout weeks at the annual SYL ODP National Camps this past weekend at the IMG Soccer Academy in Bradenton, Florida.  Northern Virginia FC claimed four spots on the elite ODP Select Team rosters for exceptional performances during the four-day event. 
 
Dylan Katz nabbed top honors, earning a spot on the 94-95 National ODP Select A Team roster following a standout season with the U15 NOVA FC boys SYL team. The Northern Virginia Royals claimed two spots on the Select B Team in the same age group as forward Evan Stalker (pictured - on right) and defender Nicholas Metzler found themselves on the prestigious list after the combine.
 
At the younger age group, Northern Virginia Royal forward Divine Koni (pictured - on left) impressed the coaches enough to be named to the 96-97 National ODP Select A Team.  The speedy Koni was an instrumental part of the highly successful, attacking offense of the U14 Royals SYL squad over the last two years.
 
The players were chosen from a pool of 187 total players in attendance at the camp by the coaches in attendance under the direction of USL National Technical Director Peter Mellor.
 
“We were very pleased with the level of play and competition we saw at the camp this year,” Mellor said. “We hope that the players took away a great deal from the on-field training and scrimmages and the off-field activities that will help them become better players in the future. The players were in awe of the facilities and opportunities this week offered them and the chance to hear from Kasey Keller and U17 National Team coach Erik Imler on what it takes to reach the next level.”
 
Northern Virginia Football Club, comprised of the Northern Virginia Royals (male), Northern Virginia Majestics (female), and NOVA FC (male and female) USL teams, was represented by seven teams in the 2010 North American Finals as well as thirty players in the 2010 SYL ODP Camp pool.
