The mission of the South Texas Youth Soccer Association Olympic Development Program (ODP) is to identify and train the elite player. This includes providing opportunities for potential region/national players to represent South Texas at upcoming US Youth Soccer Region III events. ODP is a supplement to club and high school soccer, giving players opportunities to play with and against the best, while also providing them exposure at the regional, national, and international levels. ODP tryouts offer players the opportunity to challenge themselves and showcase their talent in a unique environment. The ODP State Staff is comprised of coaches at the club, high school, and college levels. All coaches are nationally licensed and are committed to enhancing the development of each player.
