The New Mexico Olympic Development Program is here to help players reach their full potential!
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.
New Mexico YOP
The Young Olympians Program (YOP) serves as an introduction to ODP. YOP caters to players born up to three years below 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 over four weekends in March and April.
