id2 Selection events are one-day programs that include scouted, tactical training sessions followed by 11v11 match play. Selected players then advance to id2 Training Camps. This format allows for more events, additional scouting opportunities and ultimately offers more players a chance at these developmental experiences.
Additionally, a handful of organizations are hosting Player Development Programs (PDP) to supplement talent for the id2 Selection events. Great Lakes Alliance, NorCal Premier, SOCAL, Twin Cities Soccer Leagues and Virginia Premier Soccer League are all hosting PDPs in their respective regions. GLA, TCSL, Northern Illinois Soccer League and the Iowa-based Club Development League are also collaborating to create the inaugural NPL Midwest Select Games, Nov. 19-20, which will include id2 scouting.
The next progression from id2 Selection events are id2 Training Camps, which feature the top 30 boys and 30 girls performers from id2 Selections, as well as other identified players through scouting and recommendations from Directors of Coaching. US Club Soccer is hosting two id2 Training Camps in early 2023:
The final id2 progression is selecting the id2 National Selection teams that travel abroad to play top international academies. From the id2 Training Camps, 18 boys and 18 girls will be selected to travel internationally in April 2023. Details about opponents and schedules will be released closer to the 2023 id2 National Selection International Tour.
