Black Oaks David Ortiz and Raffino Lanford.

A big congratulations from the Club, Coaches and Teammates of Raffino Lanford and David Ortiz Bailon for being invited into the US Club Soccer’s Player Development Program.

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. Some PDPs also include off-field educational components.

id2 Program staff are on-site at PDP events to scout players for potential inclusion in id2 Training Camps, and U.S. Soccer staff may also be on-site to scout players for potential U.S. National Team inclusion as well as conduct off-the-field lectures, seminars, coaching and other related discussions.

The news comes today as US Soccer has announced sweeping changes to youth player development.

Lanford and Ortiz are part of the U10 SR Black Oaks coached by Marco “Tony” Castillo. We are extremely proud and wish them well in this new challenge. Learn more about PDP at US Club and let your coach know that you are interested.
