ODP Age Groups

WHAT IS ODP?

What is the Olympic Development Program (ODP)?

The mission of Missouri Youth Soccer Association’s (MYSA) Olympic Development Program is to identify and develop the top players registered within the State of Missouri, to promote development through quality coaching, and to help these players gain recognition on the Regional and National levels.

The following are among the numerous benefits the ODP has to offer:

  • Development as a player by training with and playing against the best players in one’s age group.
  • Quality instruction from nationally licensed coaches.
  • Quality competition, including games against other State’s ODP teams.
  • Exposure to collegiate, professional, regional and national team coaches.
  • The opportunity to represent one’s state, region, or country in competition.

We believe the Missouri ODP program can supplement a player's development in conjunction with their affiliate club.



ODP TRAINING INFORMATION AND SCHEDULE

Our next ODP Training will be Saturday, April 17. Each age group will have 2 sessions. These training sessions are available to all registered ODP players (State Team, Alternate, and Pool Players). Players are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible, but we understand that some players may have to miss to accommodate conflicts. You can view the schedule by clicking the link below.

Added Benefit for all High School Age ODP Registered Players: ODP Registered High School Age players will receive FREE access to Choose It Right and the Smart College Report. This report includes a list of colleges that best match their preferences and profile, a list of college coaches to contact, along with numerous resources and information as to how to make the right choices when choosing a college.  "We simplify the college search process by eliminating 100+ hours of college research with just the click of a button so that families can focus on colleges that really fit their needs,” said Tim Twellman, Choose It Right’s SVP of Student-Athlete Services.

Eligibility

Any soccer player registered in Missouri Youth Soccer Association is eligible for consideration in the ODP provided he or she meets the age requirement for the established age group. Tryouts are open to all players. If a player is not registered with MYSA, they will be registered when they sign up for tryouts.
