Many Olympic Development Program Events Moving to VSTC!

The US Youth Soccer ODP Philosophy

To identify players of the highest caliber on a continuing and consistent basis, which will lead to increased success for the U.S. National Teams in the international arena.

Purpose
The US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program was formed in 1977 to identify a pool of players in each age group from which a National Team will be selected for international competition; to provide high-level training to benefit and enhance the development of players at all levels; and, through the use of carefully selected and licensed coaches, develop a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and curriculum to improve all levels of coaching.

Events
There are several training sessions for the ODP Program.  The players selected for the District Pool and the State Pool train throughout the state.  They have a variety of events including the InterDistrict Scrimmages and
prestigious Virginia Friendlies. where ODP players will host players from neighboring states.  

To be able to train with different and other high level players and coaches from all around the state adds a great deal to the overall development of the player and we are very proud to announce that some of these events will be held right here at the Virginia Soccer Training Center.
