YNT Regional ID: New Jersey 2002/2003/2004

U.S. Soccer held a regional identification center in Somerset, New Jersey on Tuesday for the top players in the area from the 2002 through 2006 age groups. The groups were divided with the 2005/2006 players competing against each other while the 2002, 2003, and 2004 players squared off. 

The roster for the 2005/2006 age groups for the event can be found here. The roster for the 2002/2003/2004 age groups is featured below. There were 28 players called into this identification event. 

Players Development Academy (PDA) once again led the way with six players on the roster. PDA had 13 players called in between the five age groups. Multiple other clubs were also represented on the roster with no other club contributing more than two players to the event. TSJ FC Virginia had seven players between the two rosters - and will probably have quite a bit more in the future based on the recent performance of the club at Girls Academy events.

Laura Harvey, the head coach of the U20 Women’s National Team, led the staff at this training center. Diane Drake, Sade Ayinde, Ellis Badillo, and Vanessa Mann also worked the event.
