U.S. Soccer Talent ID Centers (IDCs) are free, single-day player identification opportunities for top talents to train and play games under the direction of U.S. Soccer Talent Identification Managers. IDC’s are a critical element to the Talent Identification Plan and are designed to identify and evaluate top talents for Youth National Teams, while accelerating their development in a challenging environment. IDC’s are scheduled throughout the year in key markets across the country.
U.S. Soccer Talent ID Centers are designed to replicate Youth National Team camps and are the pathway to the Youth National Teams.
The ID Center will be conducted while adhering to the strict U.S. Soccer Return to Play protocols regarding Covid-19.
