WYS Olympic Development Program

Description and Purpose: The US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program is a national program that is designed to identify and develop talented, committed youth soccer players to represent their state, region, and country in soccer competitions. It is also intended to aid in the preparing and showcasing of the players as student-athletes for exposure to collegiate soccer programs.

The goal of WYS ODP is to allow athletes to obtain and sustain a level of competition that can permit them to compete outside the state and possibly lead to participation in collegiate soccer at various levels.

Birth years for 2014/2015: players born in the years 1996 - 2003 are eligible

WYS ODP Objectives: Identify, evaluate, and train highly talented youth soccer players. As part of this national effort, the Wyoming Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (WYS ODP) is dedicated to developing the highest level of youth soccer within the state. This must be achieved in an atmosphere of integrity, fairness, and impartiality. The player's physical and cognitive skills and attitude must be the only criteria for participation in the program.

To achieve these objectives WYS ODP will:

  • Provide players the opportunity to train with highly skilled coaches from Wyoming and other states

  • Improve the soccer technical/tactical skills and knowledge of Wyoming’s players

  • Educate and provide players with the skills and tools to compete at the collegiate level

  • Provide health education and injury prevention sessions for improving the overall athlete

  • Organize teams that may participate in regional and national ODP specific competition, (if there are enough players in an age group to field a team.)

Participation: The US Youth Soccer/WYS ODP is for youth soccer players under 19 years of age as defined by USYS, and is open to all players regardless of race, color, creed, sex, or national origin. Participation in WYS ODP is open to any youth player, regardless of affiliation (or lack thereof) as long as the proper fees are paid and the player is within the program age groups.

Being a member of WYS ODP does not affect a player's ability to participate with their club team. WYS ODP participation, whether at the state, regional, or national level, is concurrent with club team participation and provides additional training and playing opportunities. Club players should be allowed by their club coaches to attend all WYS ODP functions.

Program Fees: includes training sessions, friendly games and scrimmages (when available) and training gear. Players receive ongoing evaluation from the WYS ODP coaching staff. Program withdrawal date is August 1, 2014 to receive a full refund of any fees paid.
  • WYS ODP offers a sibling discount for each additional child/step child, after the first, who registers for the program. You select this discount after registering your first child at the program's regular fee. There is no sibling discount for additional training sessions.

Financial AssistanceAssistance is available to make WYS ODP participation possible, regardless of the ability to pay.
