11U Pre-ODP Program

*REGISTRATION  OPENS NOV. 1ST*

2022/23 11U Pre-ODP Program

The NYW Olympic Development Program will conduct its 2022/23 training program for players in the 11U age group (players born in 2012 and 2013) beginning in December of 2022.   The program is for both boys and girls and will be conducted in four NYW districts; Cortland, Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo. 

The 11U Pre-ODP cycle will include five training dates, each of which will consist of a 75 minute indoor training session and a 30 minute lecture.  Training sessions will focus primarily on improving each player’s technical ability and tactical awareness, via small sided games and activities.  Lectures will cover topics such as proper training habits, age appropriate tactics, team building and group dynamics/problem solving/socialization activities.

Each district program will be under the direction of NYW ODP staff coaches.  The program will conclude with an outdoor event on Sunday, May 7, 2023 in Webster, NY* where all four district programs will assemble and participate in a round-robin “Play Day”.  

*Play Day site location: Lakefront Basket Rd Fields, 695 Basket Rd. Webster, NY

Program Rationale:

The goal of the 11U Pre-ODP program is to provide player development opportunities for youngsters in this age group.  By keeping larger player pools, more players can partake in an ODP experience where they will receive high level, age appropriate training and also get exposure to some of the best coaches in NYW.  Utilizing a model that places 11U programs in selected districts will insure convenient training locations, familiar training environments for youngsters and minimal travel for everyone.  There will be no tryouts and all age appropriate players will be accepted into the program. Having said that, the program is geared toward serious and committed players who wish to experience the high quality coaching associated with the Olympic Development Program.
