Regional Identification Center – BE DISCOVERED!

The Georgia Soccer Regional Identification Centers (RIC's) are the first step in our pathway to forming State Olympic
Development Program (ODP) teams and beyond to ODP Regional and National Pools, Events and Selections.
The State of Georgia, with over 56,000 players, is one of the more successful states in the Southeast region routinely
advancing players to Regional and National Pools. The centers are designed to be in areas of member clubs to serve
their local and surrounding areas while providing an opportunity for players to receive advanced training with a view
of being scouted into the State ODP Pool.

For the 2020-21 seasonal year there are 5 RICs. Each RIC will hold tryouts for birth years 2007 - 2010 and form a RIC
Pool. Our RIC Scouts/Coaches will run a series of ten training sessions for their pools and end with competition
against other RIC's in a central location. This training will run from November to May. All sessions will run from 6:00pm
to 8:00pm at Devaul Henderson Park in Richmond Hill, GA

Here are the scheduled dates for November, December, and January.
November 11 (Evaluations), 13 (Evaluations), 18, 22
December 2, 9, 16
January 6, 10, 13, 17, 20


The goal of these RIC's are to give advanced training to players in the pools supplemental to their Club training, teach
the ODP state playing style and prepare for advancement into the State pool. When a player excels, the player earns
the opportunity to advance and be selected to the State pool.

The 2020-2021 RICs are located in the following areas of the state Southeast (Savannah and surrounding areas); South
(Tifton and surrounding areas); Southwest (Columbus and surrounding areas); Central (Macon and the surrounding
areas) and Northwest (Dalton and surrounding areas).

We are excited and look forward to a great 2020/21 Georgia Soccer ODP season!
