The New Jersey Olympic Development Program (ODP) recently started a Club Partner Webinar Series that is being hosted by Lou Mignone, ODP Youth Coaching Director. The webinar series was created as an added bonus for ODP Club Partners, which consist of a wide range of clubs throughout the State of New Jersey. 

The focus of the first ODP Club Partner Webinar included the six key qualities of a US Soccer player: 

1. Game Understanding and Decision Making 
2. Responsibility and Recognition 
3. Growth Mindset and Winning Mentality 
4. Technical Execution 
5. Physical Execution 
6. Learning Ability 

Among the benefits of being an ODP Club Partner are: 

Use of New Jersey ODP and NJYS Young Olympians Branding 
2. ODP Club Partner Designation on NJYS Website 
3. Opportunity to Recommend Players for New Jersey ODP 
4. Access to ODP and Club Development Opportunities 

New Jersey ODP would like to thank our Club Partners for attending this webinar to learn more about the valuable benefits that our program has to offer. 

The Olympic Development Program is an identification system linked to the United States Soccer Federation and US Youth Soccer. The program offers its players a pathway that could lead to representing Regional and U.S. Youth National Teams. Originally established in 1977, ODP was the first program in the country designed to identify potential youth national team players. ODP players begin initially at the local sector before progressing to the state, regional and possibly national levels. By playing with like-talented athletes, ODP offers the opportunity for players to advance in their personal development and to be scouted by college coaches.
