Olympic Development Program
The ODP page of our web site will have the most up to date information. Be sure and check this page regularly.
TEXTING LINK: This link allows you to join a free text messaging service. OSA will not see the telephone number. Director of Coaching Kurt Luitwieler will use this database to contact ODP players for the most current information about ODP events.
If you know of teammates that should be coming out, please invite them. Registration is up and live for 2014-15
Use this link: REGISTRATION.
As part of registration, players will be given at first session, training kits. This will be 2 Numbered Jerseys (1 red and 1 white) and a shorts. We will alternate colors after the first session. Numbers are 1-500 so every player has a unique number. First come first serve, but they are mostly already printed and by size, so if you wear a Large, you will likely not be able to get the #7 you usually wear.
What to wear to first session? If you were in the program last year, wear your orange training top. If not, whatever practice gear you prefer until you receive your training kit.
We will not be taking any forms onsite, so please mail, fax or email your information to the Tulsa office. Email is easiest (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you do not have your player forms submitted before our first training center session, it's not a problem, but do please remit your forms as soon as you are able. (Make sure to register online as well as send forms.)
Forms required for registration (all are found on the US Youth link below but there are 2 pages of forms): FORMS
Code of Conduct
Player Data Form
A copy of medical insurance card (front and back) is also required.
Training sessions and Player Development Events will be the evaluation tool to see if the players will make the Oklahoma State ODP team. Any registered player can come to any training session (does not matter gender or if east/west).
Current Training Center and Event Information:
TULSA: (Mohawk Soccer Complex)
OKC: (Edmond Soccer Club)
11/26 Girls (This may get moved to either the 24th or 12/3 due to Thanksgiving)
TRAINING CENTER SESSIONS: Remember! Regardless of a player's status in terms of invitations to events, they are ALWAYS INVITED TO TRAIN AT EVERY TRAINING SESSION! That is the PRIMARY goal: improve players. Period. Secondary goal is to identify the top players and give them opportunities to prove themselves and measure their abilities at higher levels. (Age group sessions are for ALL the players in that age group.)

Frequently Asked Questions about ODP: FAQ
US Youth Soccer Association put together a document that describes the type of player(s) who make the Region III team and are successful in that sense. Very good description: What makes a successful ODP player?
