Congratulations to Barghav Balasubramaniam – ODP

Barghav has been with Fremont YSC since he was 8 years old, joining the 2007 Boys age group. Barghav started with the 07B ID I team that began playing competitive soccer at the bronze level and has progressed with the team to the State Premier Bracket, now U16’s.

Barghav has been selected to the Cal North Olympic Development Program upon recommendation by the Fremont YSC Coaching Staff. The Olympic Development Program is a national process for identifying and developing the best youth soccer players. The process promotes players to the U.S. National Teams, which represent the United States in international competition, such as the Youth World Cup and the Olympics. Cal North ODP is dedicated to developing the highest level of youth soccer in an atmosphere of integrity, fairness and impartiality. The player’s physical and cognitive skills and attitude are the only criteria for the program.

As his creativity, work ethic, desire and character are some of his major strengths, Barghav’s leadership qualities and genuine passion for the game drives his interest to keep improving and make all the players around him better as well. Barghav is a great example of the long-term player development pathway we have here at Fremont YSC, being able to play all positions on the field with comfort, high level of technical ability, and demonstration of game intelligence. While clearly an excellent soccer player, more importantly he is a great example of a good human being.

We wish Barghav the best of luck with the ODP program as he enters the national selection process in January of 2023.
