About WY ODP Soccer
Wyoming's Olympic Development Program (ODP) is a state program that aims to bring the best available players in the state together, to compete only at regional ODP events. Wyoming is part of US Youth Soccer's West Region. Wyoming ODP program provides ODP only training events, separate to 307 trainings and events, and competes in regional ODP events, primarily between August and January each year. ODP provides soccer programming for players aged 12U - 17U and players are selected to the ODP program through ODP tryouts, which are a separate event to Wyoming 307 Select Soccer tryouts. Players may be invited to ODP tryouts at any time during the year if approached by Wyoming ODP Staff Coaches who may be scouting a variety of soccer events and tournaments throughout each season; however, all players must attend ODP tryouts to be considered for selection to the ODP program. ODP teams will have a maximum of 22 players selected in each age group in both genders, in the knowledge that a maximum of 18 can be selected for a competitive ODP event. Each ODP team will have an assigned Head Coach and Team Manager, with a minimum of a USSF C License or a United Soccer Coach Advanced National Certificate which will be appointed by the WSA Technical Director, and management of the ODP program will be handled directly by Wyoming ODP staff.
Our Vision & Values
The Olympic Development Program is a national process for identifying and developing the best youth soccer players. The process promotes players to the U.S. National Teams, which represent the United States in international competition, such as the Youth World Cup and the Olympics. The main ODP objective is to identify, evaluate and train highly talented male and female youth soccer players. As part of this national effort, Wyoming Soccer Association is dedicated to developing the highest level of youth soccer. This objective must be achieved in an atmosphere of integrity, fairness and impartiality. The player’s physical, cognitive skills, attitude and commitment must be the only criteria for the program
