Mountain District 5 Olympic Development Program Overview  
WHAT IS ODP? PA West/US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program or ODP as it is commonly called is a national identification and development program designed to identify youth soccer players throughout the country, to represent their state (PA West) association, Region, and the United States in soccer competition. ODP pools are formed at the state and regional levels, made up of the best players in various age groups. At the state association level, pools of players are identified in each eligible age group, brought together as a team to develop their skills through training and competition. From the state pools, players are identified for regional and national pools and teams. PA West ODP is one of 15 state associations within US Youth Soccer Region I.
   

WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF ODP?
  1. To identify a regional pool of players in each age group for possible inter-regional and international competition.
  2. To provide high - level training to benefit and enhance the development of players at all levels
  3. Through the use of carefully selected and licensed coaches, develop a mechanism for the enhancement of ideas and curriculum to improve all levels of coaching.
