WAILUKU, MAUI, HAWAIʻI (October 28, 2019) – The Hawaii Soccer Federation (HSF) and the Major Island Soccer Organization Junior League (MJL) hosted its fifth ever US Club Soccer Player Development Program (PDP), October 9-11. Held at Keōpūolani Regional Park on Maui and Waipiʻo Peninsula Soccer Complex on Oʻahu, the development showcase featured 121 players born in 2005 (girls) and 2006 (boys), from 21 of Hawai'i's top clubs. Since PDPs hosted in Hawai'i are held later in the year than most US Club Soccer PDPs, selections from the upcoming cycle of 2006 born girls and 2007 born boys were also invited to the event, providing some top talents with an early opportunity, before they are targeted on a wider scale next season. At the core of US Club Soccer's id2 and PDP programs are the belief that player identification should be free; thus all program costs are funded entirely by HSF, MJL, the Grand Wailea on Maui, US Club Soccer, and Nike.
