What is an RTC?

RTC stands for Regional Training Center.

The Regional Training Centers program is available for all competitive players born in 2002-2011 interested in building their skills and improving their game. RTC sessions are held in Coeur d'Alene, Pocatello/Idaho Falls, Boise, and Twin Falls, Idaho. AdobeStock_109413635

RTC is part of the Olympic Development Program (ODP), but is distinct in operation. The program is staffed with ODP coaches, as well as top club and college coaches from across Idaho.

Training will be focused on developing each player’s ability through an age- and level-appropriate player curriculum aimed at enhancing the skills of each participant, whether you're the best player in your area, or an average player looking to become a better one. RTC Training is structured to be functional, focusing on areas of improvement rather than team concept training. Additionally, players will get to play with others from various clubs and age groups, learning from and being challenged by older and younger players. 

Do I have to be in the RTC program in order to participate in ODP?

No, but it certainly wouldn't hurt if making the Idaho ODP State Team is your goal. First, I believe RTC trainings will help you improve your game. Second, the RTC staff is full of current and former ODP coaches, and we are always on the lookout for the next Idaho ODP State Team star to make a US National Team (like Sofia Huerta, Grace Hancock, Kelsey Hedge, Kelcie Turnbow, etc) or a Regional Team (like Bridget Reiken, Adrian and Damian Arguello, Sammy Smith, Bre Norris, Jade Maldonado, Zayne Davis, Blake Bodily, and so many others) or play a starring role in the West Region ODP Championships in Phoenix (this list is FAR too long!).AdobeStock_206979212
