Wisconsin Olympic Development Programs (ODP) for 2013-2014
There will be a few changes in Wisconsin Olympic Development Program for 2013-2014 as we look to improve our programming. A description of each age group’s programming with associated costs, follows.
2002 and 2003 birth years
This is Wisconsin’s “Developmental” age program and can span a player’s first two years in ODP. There are no “cuts” at this age group. Trainings are primarily geared to improving a player’s skill set during three separate seasons. Trainings consist of six 90 minute dates in the fall, six 90 minute trainings in winter, and six 90 minute trainings in spring. Fall and Spring trainings are outside on Mondays. Winter trainings are indoors on Sundays. You may sign up for any combination of fall, winter, or spring, ($135.00 per season), but you must attend one session to be eligible for regional camp in July of 2013. Trainings are done within the WYSA districts. Milwaukee, Madison, Appleton (and possibly Southwest, Northwest and Midway districts, depending on numbers of registrants.) Regional camp is open to all players at this age group.
If you choose to attend regional camp in July. (approx. Cost $500.00)
1999/2000/2001 birth years
1997/1998 birth years
As these players are beginning to look forward to post high school and college soccer, they begin their ODP experience with a series of tryouts in late summer. (Cost $60)
From this tryout a pool team of approximately 30 players is chosen. These players train from November to April, for 90 minutes about two times per month, on Sundays, mostly in Madison, Milwaukee, and Fox Valley. They may also participate in a weekend indoor college showcase event in March, a “Preparing for College Soccer” seminar. (Cost of approx. 10 trainings- $360)
State teams of 18 players for Region II camp are chosen in April and attend camp in July. (Cost-approx. $450)
Players who participate will be eligible for recommendation to regional team coaches and would attend Region II events on the invitation of regional coaches.
ODP is primarily geared to those players with aspirations and the desire to compete and play soccer during and after their high school experience. The program becomes progressively more competitive with smaller and smaller pools and teams. Only those players with the will and desire to compete will succeed. Trainings are conducted by the highest level of coaching available, with many college coaches on staff. Regional staff is equally qualified. Trainings are geared to improve the skills of the individual player, as opposed to club soccer, which is often more geared to competitions and matches. While the purpose of ODP is to train the individual player, ODP players are still required to participate at the club level within WYSA in order to participate in ODP.
