New Mexico ODP

The New Mexico Youth Soccer Association Olympic Development Program (ODP) is a player identification and development program. It provides age-eligible players an opportunity to represent New Mexico at the US Youth Soccer Region IV level and beyond. Player development provided at Olympic Development Program events is intended to complement training at the club level. The program is aimed at Elite level club players only. Once invited there is no cost for players to participate in ODP Pool training sessions.

The Young Olympians Program (YOP) serves as an introduction to ODP. YOP caters to players in three age groups; players born up to two years below the youngest ODP age group as well as the same age of the youngest ODP age group. YOP training pools are trained by the ODP coaching staff in a competitive training environment with the emphasis on player development and evaluation. The YOP training sessions take place during the spring season and in the summer. The program is aimed at age eligible Elite level and High level competitive club players.
