Here we go! Let’s get ready to welcome some international opposition to Del Oro High School Stadium.
Yes! It’s the season opener for both California Development Academy teams as they prepare to take on the mighty Canadians, Vancuover Whitecaps.
“The Caps,” who opened their first season in the USSF Academy last weekend, had an all MLS clash against Real Salt Lake and came away with an impressive 5-1 win in the U18 age group, and an unlucky 2-1 loss in the U16 age group.
CDA is entering their 3rd season in the USSF Academy. They hope to continue building on their impressive first two seasons which has seen them make playoffs twice in a row in the U18 age and once in the U16’s. In addition, CDA boasts an impressive 30 graduating seniors into collegiate soccer programs such as Princeton, Cal Berkley, Virginia, San Diego State, Vermont, Seattle, UC Davis, University of San Diego, and Cal Poly.
CDA has also had numberous players invited to U18 National Team camps, including being the only Academy program last year to have four players in the U18 national pool at one time.
Connor Hallisey became the first CDA player to be capped by USA when he competed against Germany, Israel and France in Isreal.
Seth Casiple and Grant Silvester were again named to the Western Conference starting 11 for the 2010/2011 season.
So come on out and cheer on some local boys this Saturday, September 24th.
U18’s @ 12:00 p.m.
U16’s @ 2.30 p.m.
