Kentucky Olympic Development Program (ODP)

ODP

The Olympic Development Program (ODP) is a national program to identify and develop youth shield kyplayers to represent their State, Region, and country in soccer competitions. ODP teams are formed with each of the 55 US Youth Soccer State Associations and four regions, made up of the best players in the various age groups. At the state association level, pools of players are identified in each eligible age group, brought together as a team to develop their skill through training and competition. From the state pools and subsequent teams, players are identified for regional and national pools and teams.

 

What is the Purpose?

1) To identify a pool of players in each age group from which a National Team will be selected for international competition;
2) To provide high-level training to benefit and enhance the development of players at all levels;
3) Through the use of carefully selected and licensed coaches, to develop a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and curriculum to improve all levels of coaching.
