Olympic Development Program
The 2020/21 Olympic Development Program cycle will showcase a new structure. The US Youth Soccer National Technical staff has created a new structure based off a scouting network targeted at Player Identification. This new focus means that the state level ODP Program will be making the adjustments accordingly to align themselves with the new national structure.
The overall changes mean that at the events, scouts from US Soccer National Teams, MLS, USL, College and other organizations will be there to evaluate and review players for selection.
SC Youth Soccer ODP will be making changes to staffing, evaluations and player selections.
Changes to the 2020-21 SC Youth ODP Cycle:
Player identification will employ the Jungo app referral from club coaches as well as direct player referrals from our clubs.
ODP will use district locations for technical trainings.
There will be a central location for tactical training.
Players will be required to pay for the training in advance of program but if a player cannot attend and provides notice (72hrs) in advance via email then missed sessions will be refunded at $25 per session. Coaches will take attendance at each session. Staffing for the sessions will be assessed by the player pool within the district so notification in advance of player absence helps control expenses.
