OLYMPIC DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
ODP INFORMATION FOR PARENTS AND PLAYERS
Welcome to the Louisiana Soccer Association Olympic Development Program ("ODP")! We thank you for the time and commitment you have made to be a part of this elite program. This information packet describes the purposes of ODP and its focus upon the growth and development of youth soccer players of Louisiana. Also included are a listing of ODP events and a fee schedule. The event and fee information is preliminary and subject to change.
First and foremost, ODP is focused entirely upon the development of each individual player. Unlike the club soccer environment, ODP is not motivated by team achievements. Rather ODP is dedicated to making certain each individual player reaches his or her full potential as a soccer player and an athlete. ODP is also designed to give the elite player the best possible exposure at regional ODP events and major college showcase tournaments while complimenting a player’s club commitment, not an easy task!! ODP is the only elite player development program that can claim members of Major League Soccer and Women’s Professional Soccer, as well as a majority of current and past US National and US Youth National team members, as alumni.
Should you have any questions about ODP in Louisiana please do not hesistate to contact LSA Technical Director, Mark Godwin at MarkGodwinDOC@lsa-soccer.org
