Charlotte Independence Soccer Club players attend South Atlantic NPL PDP event
Date Posted: 8/10/2019
Congrats to our Charlotte Independence players who were invited to participate in the annual South Atlantic NPL PDP event at Mazeppa Road Park in Mooresville, NC this past weekend!
PDP (Player Development Program) is the pathway for all ECNL & NPL players to progress towards the iD2 National Program which grants players even more exposure and high-level training.
Stephen Chaconas, our NPL Boys' Director, had this to say about the event, "South Atlantic NPL was proud to host a regional PDP event, with a big thank you to Charlotte Independence for providing their resources and hosting. Facilities, coaching staff, and resources for the players were fantastic. We were proud to host professional staff from 5 different South Atlantic NPL staff, who all collaborated to run a first-class evaluation of the players in attendance. The level of play was a testament to the quality of play in the league. Also a big thank you to Steve Nicol (ESPN Analyst, former Liverpool player, and Scotland World Cup player) and Kenny Mansally (Pro Player Charlotte Independence) for attending to engage with the players and speak. We look forward to running more first-class events in the league.”
CISC was fortunate enough to have 4 players selected from our boys' program and 15 players selected from our girls' program! They are listed below.
Boys- Dean Ejindu, Raphael Infante, Britton Utzinger, Carson McGuire
