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.

Oklahoma ODP PTS & PPC’s


Pool Training Session (PTS):

These will be conducted by the Head Coach or Assistant Coach for the appropriate Pool aged groups.

The sessions will be conducted taking into consideration the following:

  1. US Soccer’s Grassroots Player Development Philosophy:

“At the grassroots level, children learn and develop to their full potential through game-like experiences in an enjoyable environment that supports individual growth.”

  1. US Soccer’s 6 Tasks of a Coach:

6 Tasks of a Coach

  1. US Soccer’s 11v11 Player Development Initiatives (PDI’s):

Player Development Initiatives


Player Performance Center (PPC’s):

These will be conducted by a group of Senior ODP Staff Coaches, that may or may not involve the same age or gender group coaching staff.

There will be PPC’s throughout the season, 1 x PPC on each side of the state.

These training sessions will still consist mostly of what is involved in a PTS, but they will also be functional and player position specific in needs also, based on US Soccer’s PDI’s and System of Play (4-3-3)


Basic Outline of a PPC:

(Session duration, 90 minutes total)

Play 1 x 30 minutes, total (Functional/Positional Training with Staff Coaches)

Practice 1 x 30 minutes, total (Small sided games 6v6/7v7+GK’s)

Play 2 x 30 minutes, total (11v11 games)


Junior Performance Centers (JPC):

We will be looking to conduct between 2-4 JPC’s throughout the season.

These are basically the same at the ODP PPC’s but for U11-U12 Academy and Recreational Players. This is for purely introducing the Grassroots Methodology and getting them familiar with the ODP environment, as there will be no events for these players to attend.

Further Information:

We are also looking into some weekend/overnight camps/clinics throughout the season, so please keep checking the website for any updates.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us:  David Yates, Oklahoma State Technical Director    Adam Kenes, Assistant Director of Coaching/ODP Administrator

ODP Mission

ODP Mission

Oklahoma Soccer Association (OSA) continues to be committed to the statewide development of our Olympic Development Program (ODP), and the ODP coaches and players, during 2018-19.

We will be conducting several ODP Training Centers throughout the state, so we can evaluate and identify our states top level players, that want to challenge themselves and continue to develop and potentially reach Region and National pool/teams levels.

We will continue to maintain US Soccer’s National Team system, utilize Player Development Initiative’s (PDI’s) as well as incorporate US Soccer’s new Grassroots Methodology and Philosophy.

This will allow us to create a much more “Player Centered” training environment, through reality based training and experiential learning.

Our ODP Coaching staff will consist of club, high school and college levels who hold a national license, that are understanding of our Region/South style of play and individual players continued development.
