The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

From Costa Rica with Region III ODP 00 Boys

Mar 11, 2019

The Region 3 Boys ODP 2000 age group is in Costa Rica playing a series of games against the youth academies of the top Costa Rican pro teams. There are 5 players from Georgia’s ODP in the 18 player squad, more than any other state.










With have played 3 games so far and our record is won 2 and tied one. We have one game left before returning on Thursday. This is the first time that I can remember where our Region team was able to come to Costa Rica and dominate possession in games.  The usual pattern of our past experiences involved a lot of defending and counter attacking without much possession. In the past, we relied on our defensive organization to stay in the game. This time, we have improved the possession part of our game to a point where we can keep the ball and take the pressure off our defenders.

Our region ODP ’99 and ’98 teams are traveling to Italy in early March and that will be another, more difficult test of our progress in terms of possession abilities. Stay tuned for more.
