Last year, the boys team was posted within a day of the finals, while the girls team took a few weeks.  Don't hold your breath hoping to see many CN players on the first team.  IMO, there's a bias toward CS in regional ODP.  Usually doesn't bother me because CS usually wins the age-group, but did bother me last year when they lost in the 96G semis and still got the most selections to that age-group's All-Star team.  This year, it'll be interesting to see how they handle the 99G age group where CS didn't compete, having chosen to play the CS 99G team in the 98G age group (where they got to the semis).

Thank you! I was curious. I do recgonize the bias for CS, year after year, it still seems the same. Please don't get me wrong, they have talented atheletes, but some other talents have gone unrecgonized and that is unfortunate.  As for this year, in the 98G group, it looked as they had placed the stronger teams on one side of the bracket, so even though the CS 99G team went to the semis, they were not playing the strogest teams of the 98G group during pool play. I would imagine those girls would still go under the 99 umbrella when they do select the all-tourney team.

US Youth Soccer is holding a national development camp for the 95s, 96s, and 97s and all together over 190 girls were invited to this camp, and only 4 are from Cal North.  If that is not bias than I'm not sure what it is.  I'm happy to say that three of these girls are from Blues/Placer's u15 team.

Here is the link to the invitees. Low Cal North numbers are possibly due to ECNL and US Club PDP involvement.

No doubt that ECNL has had a significant impact on the numbers, but I do know that on the 97s team there is a least one player from each Mustang, Rage, and DeAnza's ECNL teams.  

Cal South is very strong.  Not only do they have great players, but my understanding is that their rosters from year to year don't change much so they are used to playing with each other.  They also practice together throughout the year and it shows at tournaments.
