What is D-ODP?

About Developmental ODP (Olympic Development Program)

The Virginia Youth Soccer Association is pleased to announce an innovative new program designed for U11, U10, and U9 players, both boys and girls. Developmental ODP or D-ODP is a new and exciting state-wide program that will replace the successful VYSA Academy and is designed to allow younger players the opportunity to be trained by many of the top coaches on the VYSA state staff and to be exposed to the best practices that the Olympic Development Program employs.

D-ODP will train players and expose them to the benefits of US Youth Soccer's Olympic Development Program. Not only will there be quality training with other high-level players in your district but there will also be an opportunity to compete with and against the better players from around the state and East Region (East Region encompasses 15 states in the Northeast part of the US).
VYSA’s Technical Director Gordon Miller commented saying, “It will be good to get the younger players into this new program where we can start to identify and train them using the same high-quality techniques and age specific training practices that we’ve been employing in the ODP for years now. It will give them a taste of what the expectations are at the highest level in the state.”
