Adidas has postponed the 2010 adidas Elite Soccer Program, according to Antonio Zea
, the Business Unit Director of adidas Soccer.
The ESP program,
launched in 1997, was an invitation-only showcase camp, modeled after the major basketball camps. Players trained and competed in front of professional and college scouts and learned about college
programs and professional paths, including MLS's Generation adidas. It started as a boys-only program but a girls program was held in recent years.
For a number of years, Juergen Klinsmann
was involved in the administration and operation of the camp.
National team players who attended the camp include Jozy Altidore
and Jonathan Spector
