PORTLAND, Oregon (May 26-28, 2023) - The 2022/23 Cal North ODP cycle concluded with it's last event of the year being 2023 Friendship Cup on Portland, Oregon.
This event featured host state Oregon ODP, Washington ODP and Cal North ODP, offering additional competition to ODP players from three of the strongest ODP programs in the Far West Region.
Cal North ODP featured all 12 of the ODP teams in this event, making this the first event for the U12's (2011) and the last for the U17's (2006). What makes this event unique is the exposure that players get, drawing attention from USYS regional coaches and local Division I schools, such as The University of Oregon (Ducks), which were present at the event.
For the younger age groups, U12's to be specific, this event helps them get acclimated and familiar with the ODP program and serves them as a first-time in traveling with other players from other clubs.
