About Elite Player Development (EPD)
Each program that WYS currently run, including ODP, State Pool Training, etc. will still play an integral role in the WYS EPD training program as each individual program provides an important component in players' development. The EPD program will ensure that the best avenues for the development of Elite players here in Washington are created to provide the correct matriculation and education.
Through the EPD, WYS expect to develop more players who will have the technical and tactical skills combined with the creativity to compete at the highest levels. Washington Youth Soccer's / Sounders FC EPD program will develop hundreds of elite athletes across the state aged between 10-17 years old for both boys and girls from all sections of our community. The objective is to develop a precise learning environment for the education and progress of each and every selected player.
The programs under the EPD umbrella include:
- ODP Selected Events
- ODP Annual Programming
- Annual State Pool Training Program
- State pool training schedule for event preparation & development
- Local & Regional Elite Tournaments/College Showcases
- Strategically selected events
- Continued Professional Development of Staff
