(This is NOT ODP Tryouts)

Boys and Girls born in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008

are eligible for Player Development Program Training Centers


The Training Centers help prepare players for the upcoming training-tryouts for the state team. Players who are selected to the state team have the potential to represent South Texas at Region events following summer. In addition, during each Training Center, players will be evaluated and possibly recommended for US Soccer Market Training Centers. The South Texas PDP Staff is comprised of current professional, college, high school, and top level youth program coaches from throughout South Texas. We recognize that their knowledge and experience are an important factor in your child's development as a soccer player and their professionalism makes our Training Center environment top-notch.

El Paso, Rio Grande Valley and Beaumont area – we are working with the association and clubs in your area to organize training centers closer to you.  Watch this page for information to be posted as details are finalized.

Training Centers serve as an introduction to the Player Development Program, giving parents and players an opportunity to experience the program while learning what will be expected of them, as well as, what they can expect from PDP.  Therefore, the Training Centers are marketed to the four youngest years of eligibility.  The STX Training Centers are geared to improve each player’s technical proficiency and tactical awareness. The demands presented to each player during the sessions will prepare them for the upcoming training/tryouts and the potential to represent South Texas at Region and international events.
