ODP 101

The ODP 101 Program is for players within the birth date range of January 1, 2002 to December 31, 2004. This program is designed to provide additional technical training to those players seeking new challenges and help identify youth soccer players in Michigan. The identification process will help our ODP Staff in its efforts to design and implement appropriate demands and objectives.

The curriculum will be designed specifically for youth players; therefore, your sons and daughters will be assured a proper, age specific learning environment. The plan is for the ODP 101 Program to be offered in each seasonal year. The program is for the serious, competitive player, seeking to make the first step into learning about the MSYSA ODP Program.

ODP101 parallels a similar program to the traditional ODP process of a three-day evaluation plus additional Pool Training throughout the season.  Hence, the program helps introduce young players to the ideas and concepts of traditional ODP by facilitating the playing experience with new coaches and new players. 

Important Notes:

ODP101 uses the calendar year for participation.  For exmple if your son/ daughter is born in 2001, you will be with the 2001 Player Pool.

ODP101 Calendar begins in August and finishes the following June.
