US Club Soccer PDP - Hosted by EDP

EDP is an official US Club Soccer PDP partner.

US Club Soccer’s Player Development Programs (PDPs) are regionally based identification and developmental programs conducted within the id2 Program umbrella. PDPs are focused around the National Premier Leagues (NPL) and other top leagues in specific geographic areas.

PDP invitations are based upon objective scouting of elite clubs and leagues, combined with recommendations from top Directors of Coaching. Each PDP includes at least one training session and one internal competition.

US Club Soccer PDP

PDP programs scout highly talented players and provide them with high level training and gameplay opportunities in order to further develop their soccer playing careers. All EDP league participants are eligible to be included in this program.

PDP programs are 100% free to participating players.
