The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

SCOUTING PROCESS

ODP Scouting  Procedure

PLAYERS MUST BE REGISTERED IN ORDER TO BE SCOUTED

We are excited to kick off the 2020-2021 Olympic Development Program (ODP) cycle

 

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.

DE ODP players are selected to represent the state from scouting opportunities, training sessions or games. The State Association trainers and scouts are recognized for their ability to identify and develop players with superior skills.

Players may also be identified during club, high school, or league play by State, Regional, or National coaches. There are several ways that players can stand out. We want to help you develop your skills and abilities and learn to put yourself at the service of the team to help the team win games. How do you win soccer games?

Score Goals - Create Goals - Prevent Goals

Focusing on what matters most will help simplify decisions and increase your influence on the game.
