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 West Region 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.

The Young Olympians Program (YOP) serves as an introduction to ODP (Olympic Development Program). YOP caters to players in Four 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.
