3 members of the Carlsbad Wave BU12 Black team have been selected in the Cal South ODP Winter pool for players born in 2001. Gavin Noble, Mitchell Seipt, and Jared Miller (pictured) were scouted at the SDDA ODP showcase event at Poinsettia Park in September.
The boys will go into training with around 50 of the top players in Cal South throughout December and early January in preparation for the US Youth Soccer ODP Region IV Championships, to be held Phoenix, AZ from January 8-12, 2014.
Director Of Coaching Steve Cowell: “I am extremely proud of these boys on their selection to the ODP pool. To be recognized amongst the top players in a highly competitive environment is an honor for them, and a reward for their dedication and hard work over the past couple of years at this club. It is a sign that our program as a whole is continuing to improve at a rapid rate, and I look forward to the boys going on to represent Carlsbad Wave at the regional level.”
The BU12 Black team finished out the fall season on Saturday with a hard-fought 1-0 win away at DMCV Sharks – Jagger Kenady scoring the winner in the last minute after good team build up play including great work from Aiden Hallinan and Gavin Noble. The result meant the boys finished the SDDA Flight 1 season with 5 wins, 4 losses and 1 tie, winning both showcase games in addition to round out a successful campaign. The boys will now focus on training and scrimmages over the coming weeks as they prepare for the Vegas Cup in January, and USYS National Cup which begins in late February.
All at Carlsbad Wave would like to congratulate the 3 boys on their achievement of being selected to the ODP winter pool!
