ODP Player Manual

 

Update 12/10/18

With the current weather temperatures and weather warnings, the ODP Identification Days have been pushed back later than we would of liked, which is also due to coaches and players having tournaments and league games rescheduled.

So with that being said, and with us wanting to get an idea of numbers within each group, especially for us to consider how many teams we can take to the South Texas event Jan 26-28th, we are asking that players from all over the state attend this Wednesday's ID training at Titan Sports Complex (information below) if possible.

We know that some of the players may not be able to make it, which is okay,  as this is a season long program that runs from December through to June/July 2019. Pease don't worry if you cannot make this Wednesday, but we hope you can.  We will see you out there!

The West side training session will be held in OKC on January 6th, from 2-4pm at, Wendel Whisenhunt Sports Complex(informaiton below).

Thank you for your patience, and please know we are doing all we can to make this as positive as an experience for every single player and parent as we possibly can.

Below, you will find the Training Lesson Plans that the coaches will be conducting this Wednesday, depending on the age of your player. Please take a moment to review. 

9v9 Attacking

11v11 Attacking

Thank you again, we look forward to meeting as many parents and players as we can this Wednesday.

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:

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.
