Earlier this year - U.S. Soccer announced a major overhaul of the youth soccer developmental pyramid with the launch of the Player Development Initiatives. These core objectives are designed to;
  • Develop Skills on the Ball (by improving number of touches, control and confidence)
  • Develop Intelligence (by promoting faster decisions and better awareness)
  • Develop Partnerships Within the Team
  • Provide an Age Appropriate Environment
  • Specific training on roles and responsibilities in the 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11 systems of play


In 2014 - 2015, Ohio South ODP began to transition in aspects of the new U.S. Soccer Player Development Initiatives. This continued for the 2015 - 2016 cycle with an emphasis on the US Soccer Numbering System, Player Profiles and the 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11 game models.

Many of these initiatives are scheduled to be implemented statewide beginning in the Fall of 2016.

Due to many requests and the popularity of this training, Ohio South would like to open up further training opportunities. This Center of Excellence is open to;

  1. Those players currently enrolled in ODP and who wish additional exposure to these concepts
  2. Players not currently enrolled in ODP - but who wish the training to begin to prepare for the  Fall 2016 club season


The Olympic Development Program (ODP) Center of Excellence is 2 hour day camp (Monday - Friday) specifically targeted at those players born 2003 through 2008. Players do not have to be currently a member of ODP to participate in this camp. This is designed to be an additional training opportunity for ALL players with birth years 2003 - 2008.
