ODP Costs

Print Email
 
Unlike most other youth sports programming, Louisiana ODP is a self-funded program. The costs to ODP participants are determined entirely by the operational charges and expenses incurred by LSA. No profit is realvenue is generated from ODP. These costs are based on an estimate of those charges and expenses and are subject to change. These costs include all coaching compensation and expenses, LSA administrative costs, and charges for the South Region Events. They do not include travel expenses for South Regional Events.

Costs FAQ

What does the cost include?
The costs include the price of training, administration, coaches, equipment, events, and scouting services from the South Region.  Each state is responsible for hosting scouts across training and/ or events.  LSA will be hosting US Soccer and South Region ODP Scouts for player identification purposes during assigned training events.  
 
As members, the ODP survey results illustrated the desire increase training contacts.  Six sessions did not allow for adequate development nor engage the learning of the ODP Player.  Hence, LSA ODP is increasing the training contacts to help its members continue to find additional development opportunities.  
 
Events allow opportunities for competition and collegiate exposure along with South Region Scouting exposure.  Event entry fees are covered by LSA ODP.  
 
Unlike for profit companies, LSA is obligated to our members to make every effort to keep event costs (travel, hotel, meals, et al) at a minimum.  Again, Louisiana ODP is a zero-base program and, by LSA Policy, cannot make a profit.
