Of the 16 id2 participants, six were born in 2004, while the other 10 were born in 2005. Fourteen different clubs from 10 states are represented.

All costs – including airfare, lodging, meals and training gear – are covered by US Club Soccer and Nike for the id2 competitors.

The camp is sanctioned as an Olympic Development Program by U.S. Soccer and the U.S. Olympic Committee. Players from all over the country were considered for invitations, regardless of U.S. Soccer affiliation.
