New Jersey ODP Hosts Memorial Day Interstate Tournament

The New Jersey Olympic Development Program (ODP) recently hosted its first Memorial Day Tournament against Eastern Pennsylvania ODP teams. The tournament was assembled by New Jersey ODP to give teams and players the opportunity to further prepare for the upcoming US Youth Soccer ODP East Region Tournament while also providing ODP coaches the opportunity to further assess the players.

“Initially, we added the tournament to the calendar to add more value to this year’s program," said James Galanis, NJYS Director of Technical Operations. "The COVID pandemic restrictions eliminated interstate travel and stopped us from playing against other states as scheduled this winter. This was a great opportunity to give to our teams the opportunity to test the progress we have made through training with the restrictions on interstate play lifted.”

The tournament was held at multiple locations in New Jersey, with games ending before noon to give families the opportunity to enjoy their weekends.

“Our team collaborated with an objective to facilitate meaningful game experiences for the players,” said Lou Mignone, New Jersey ODP Coaching Director. “The matches offered high quality play and an appropriate degree of challenge for the ODP players of New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania.
