The Olympic Development Program (ODP) is a national program to identify and develop youth players to represent their State, Region, and country in soccer competitions. ODP teams are formed with each of the 55 US Youth Soccer State Associations and four regions, made up of the best players in the 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 skill through training and competition. From the state pools and subsequent teams, players are identified for regional and national pools and teams. The Olympic Development Program works in conjunction with club soccer and players are permitted to participate in both. Players should see it as a great honor to represent their state association as well as their club team as they strive to become a better player.
What is the Purpose?
1) To identify a pool of players in each age group from which a National Team will be selected for 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, to develop a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and curriculum to improve all levels of coaching.

Congratulations to all players that have been selected to the US Youth Soccer Region II ID Camp in Saginaw, Michigan. Everyone's efforts throughout the year has been greatly appreciated and every player that has been involved in the program this past season has the potential to be a great player. Only so many players can move onto the next level and we wish those that have been selected by Regional and National coaches the best of luck at ID Camp.
Selected players will receive an email from Jessica Eberle at US Youth Soccer Region II with details regarding the camp and have 24 hours to select the invite. Kentucky Youth Soccer covers the camp fees but families are responsible for transporting the children to and from camp.
