When you register online and pay your $40 tryout fee ($50 at the field on the day of tryouts -- and even if you register at the field you will still need to register online as well), you are able to attend any and all try outs.
Most players will either attend 1 or 2 in the District in which they reside. One try out is mandatory, two are preferred.


Welcome to Idaho Youth Soccer’s official website for the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP). US Youth Soccer’s ODP is a national program that has been in existence since 1977 and is considered the finest soccer program in the country.

ODP is designed to identify and develop talented youth soccer players throughout the country to represent their state association, region and the United States in soccer competition. ODP is offered as a compliment to club programs as an additional resource for player development as they prepare for state, regional, national and international competitions.

Idaho ODP is now a part of the Portland Timbers (boys) and Portland Thorns (girls) pre-academy program and represents the highest level of youth soccer offered in the state of Idaho and is available to all [age specific] youth soccer players registered with Idaho Youth Soccer.

The Olympic Development Program is open to all players born in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004 (2005's are invited to try out for the 2004 pool).
