This week San Ramon FC hosted a US Soccer Training ID Center (IDC) at Rancho San Ramon Community Park. This IDC was a regional event for the SF Bay Area region. Nearly 70 players with birth years of either 2010 or 2009 attended by invitation only. IDCs are the pathway to youth national teams and give players exposure to high level training. IDCs allow US Soccer staff to evaluate top talent in a given region. At the San Ramon IDC, scouts from the San Jose Earthquakes, LA Galaxy, Sacramento Republic, and Colorado Rapids observed the players during the session.
Two of San Ramon FC's players received invitations and attended the IDC: Ayooluwa Ipadeola (2009) and Hiroto Lam (2010). Ayoo is a player on the SRFC 2009B NPL team. Hiroto plays on San Ramon FC's 2010B NPL team.
