Idaho Olympic Development Program

2022-2023 Cycle

Idaho_PMS

WHAT IS ODP? 

The US YOUTH SOCCER Olympic Development Program, or ODP as it is more commonly called, is a national identification and development program for high-level players. The program identifies and develops youth players throughout the country to represent their state association, region, and the United States in soccer competition.  

 

ODP teams are formed at the state association and regional levels, made up of the best players in various age groups. At the state association level, pools of players are identified in each eligible age group and 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. 


PROCESS

 

Players (2006's - 2011's) will be selected based on their respective tryout and training dates (info below). 

 

The State Team will be posted with 16-18 players (12-14 players for the youngest age group) and will receive State Team invites. The State Pool (players available to invite/call up as alternates for Team events) will be identified and sent pool invites(20-30 players). The State team (with invited Pool alternates) will compete in the one to two events in November/December and the West Region ODP Championships in January. The attendance of all events is recommended to allow the team to come together and play prior to the Championships, but understand that may not be feasible for everyone. Players listed on either list will also attend the Player ID Camp in Boise (March) in addition to participation in the Idaho ODP program training dates. 

 

The cost for the ODP West Championships for the State Team is estimated at $800. The cost for the ODP Championships will pay for the vans during the event, hotel (4 players per room), meals and snacks, tournament and administration fees, coaching, etc. as well as additional training. The fee does not include costs for flights to and from, or those making alternate rooming arrangements. Payment options/plans will be available. This will be assessed to those selected for the State Team and invited to the West Championships.

 

New this year is the addition of 1-2 pre-Championships events during the winter. We anticipate one November and one December event. This will be used to help our teams prepare for the Championships. The cost will be separate and invitation only.

IDAHO ODP CAMP

The goal of the IYSA ODP ID Camp is to regionalize exposure to the ODP format, training methods, and program. This camp will also provide an opportunity to invite participants into their age group “State pool” for those evaluated at the ODP level sooner than the first Idaho ODP tryout date August 13/14th in Boise.  Players added to the ODP pool will be invited to additional training opportunities regionally and become eligible to be selected to the State Team.  Players selected for the State team attend the ODP Championships in January each year. 

 

Focus of these IYSA ODP ID Camps is two-fold. Player development (training based on principles of attacking and defending and skills needed to succeed in both) and Player Identification (finding players for the ODP pool). The camp will consist of three training sessions. Friday evening, Saturday morning and Saturday evening. At the conclusion of camp, those players invited into the ODP pool will be informed via email the following week.

 

ID Camps have been completed for the year

ODP TRYOUTS

All players need to register for tryouts through GotSport (links below). 

 

Please do your best to attend the appropriate ODP tryout session for your age group but contact your age group head coach with any needs/requests.

 

If for some reason you cannot attend the tryout, you still need to register for tryouts. Please contact your age group head coach ASAP and let them know you want to play but cannot make the tryout but have registered and will be on the list. I would also include a note on any previous ODP participation, as well as contact information for your club/school coaches. Not being able to make the tryout does not preclude you from making the ODP State Team, but it can make it more difficult.
