Olympic Development Program

New 2019 ODP Logo

The US Youth Soccer ODP Philosophy
To identify players of the highest caliber on a continuing and consistent basis, which will lead to increased success for the U.S. National Teams in the international arena.


The U.S. Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP) 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 (OSA), region (South Region) and the United States in soccer competitions.


ODP Teams are formed at the Oklahoma Soccer Association and regional level, made up of the best players in various age groups.

What is the Olympic Development Program (ODP)?

Oklahoma ODP seeks to identify elite players from all over the state with the intention of developing those players with supplemental training in a competitive environment while exposing them to opportunities for success at higher levels of competition.

Each region varies somewhat as to the specifics and the cost of their camps. Your state association or regional administrator should be contacted for more information.
