U11-U12 Young Olympians Program - Birth year 2003 and 2004

This program was specially designed to edu-train the parent and player on the mission of the US Youth Soccer/NJYS ODP, while supplementing their club schedule.  The curriculum consists of specially designed age appropriate training sessions that mirror the recommendations of the US Soccer's National Curriculum and using a Long Term Player Development model (LTPD) led by our Nationally Licensed Coaches.   
 


Olympic Development Program

The US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program has been in existence since 1977. It was the first program introduced to help identify potential national team youth players through an organized series of trials which began at the district or local level, progressed through the state, region and finally the national level. 


The ODP Program has some interesting and meaningful stories.

These profiles are just a small part of what ODP is about.

Enjoy their stories.

David Howarth  -   For many New Jerseyans, playing youth soccer is a rite of passage. Snacking on orange slices during halftime or watching a swarm of kindergarteners chase a ball up and down the field represents familiar memories for many families.  

Allison Deluca  -  Junior Allison DeLuca of Flemington made it all the way to the National Pool and won’t stop until she’s a member of that team.

Gianna Pittaro  - ODP 2000 player starts path to follow in her mother’s footsteps.

Sloan DePiero and Katie Lindacher  -  The College of New Jersey women’s soccer team co-captains, Sloan DePiero and Katie Lindacher, achieved what many youth soccer players dream about - playing collegiate soccer.

Alec Lam - A superior goalkeeper and respected role model.

Don Nicol - shares experience of first International Friendly.

Trip to South Africa, Experience of a Life Time

March 2014, six NJ U17 (1997) USYS ODP players were selected from Region I’s 12-state player pool for a team competing at the Future Champions Gauteng Cup in Johannesburg, South Africa

Vinny Masitti, offered a recap of his journey

 

“Being chosen to represent New Jersey for the Region I ODP Future Champions Tournament in South Africa was a great experience. It was an incredible learning opportunity to play against soccer players from different countries and learn about their different cultures. 

 

The Future Champions group also showed us their country. We went on a tour to see where Nelson Mandela grew up, visited the stadium where the 2010 World Cup was played, took a trip to a lion zoo and even went on a team safari.

 

Without this opportunity, I doubt I would have ever traveled to this part of the world. It was truly an experience of a lifetime.”


Tyler Miller, a former ‪‎NJYS ODP standout, talks with Big Apple Soccer about his youth career here in NJ and offers advice for today's players.  The Woodbury native was a Big 10 "Goalkeeper of the Year" at Northwestern and is currently a U-23 Men's National Team contender.
