*Denotes US Youth Soccer ODP player

U.S. Youth Soccer ODP prepares players for selection to the U.S. National Team programs by bringing together the best players from their club teams to compete in state, regional, national and international competitions, mimicking the U.S. National Team system. Players selected to U.S. Youth Soccer ODP are exposed to the nation’s top coaches from collegiate institutions, U.S. Soccer and the professional leagues.

U.S. Youth Soccer ODP, established in 1977, is the original Olympic development program in the United States. It was formed to identify a pool of players in each age group from which a national team could be selected for international competition, to provide high-level training to benefit and enhance the development of players at all levels and, through the use of carefully selected and licensed coaches, develop a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and curriculum to improve all levels of coaching.

Programs exist in each state and with competitions such as the US Youth Soccer ODP Championships, Interregional Training/Competition, Regional Camps and International play.
