What Makes an Olympic Development (ODP) Player?
Many young soccer
players are probably wondering what it takes to become an "elite"
player at the State, Regional or even National ODP level. While some players
have good technical skills, others have speed, and still others can kick the
ball a long way or are strong in the air. Is it any one thing, that makes a
player get noticed? The answer of course is yes... and no!

Is the ODP program
for you? Have you read “What Makes an ODP Player?” The Minnesota US Youth
Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP) is a program that offers supplemental
training and a competitive opportunity to the best identifiable talent in
certain birth years. ODP is not an alternative to club play. All ODP players
play for an MYSA club.
