The Louisiana Olympic Development Program will once again take a Boys' Team to London over Thanksgiving week to train, tour and play. LSA is the first state soccer association to partner with an English Premier League club and our friends at West Ham United will host the boys from Louisiana again this fall. 

West Ham is a club founded on the principles of player development and their Academy has turned out such players as Michael Carrick, Joe Cole, Frank Lampard and John Terry. The boys will train at “The Academy of Football” under the direction of the West Ham Academy coaching staff. They will also play games against the West Ham United and Bisham Abbey (British National Sports Centre) Academy Teams and will take in a professional game as well. These tours have been a wonderful experience for the Louisiana ODP Players and their family members who joined us and all of us at Louisiana ODP are fortunate to have partners such as West Ham United who exemplify our passion for the game.
