The goal of the Olympic Development Program (ODP) is to identify and advance the most talented and passionate youth players through state, regional, and national team selection and competitions. The pinnacle is US National Teams from 16 year olds and up that represent the US on the international stage.
The New York State West/US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program was created for three reasons:
- to provide high-level training to benefit and enhance the development of players at all levels;
- through the use of carefully selected and licensed coaches, to develop a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and curriculum to imporve all levels of coaching, and
- to identify a pool of players in each age group from which a National Team will be selected for internatinal competition.
We invite you to experience our program; get involved!
