2013 ODP Camp Registration
2013 Camp dates are as follows:
Players must make either their initial or full camp payment by April 16, 2013. If a player has not made their initial camp deposit by this date, it will be assumed that you do not wish to continue to participate on the MSA State Select Team to attend the Regional ODP Camp team and your position will be offered to a player in the “Alternates” pool. The camp cost is $575 or 2 payments of $295 deducted monthly on the date of the initial payment. Payment includes camp training gear.
To All Boys ODP Players,
The Region III Boys ODP has recently implemented important changes to the program. Some of the new features of the Region ODP are:
1. The creation of a new position of ‘Region III Technical Director’ whose role is to focus on the technical aspects of the program and apply more player development components into region camp and region pool events.
2. Every year the region invites foreign teams to camp to provide international competition and a global flavor for our players. Our players need more exposure to the international game to fully develop and they can now get it both at region camp and when invited to region team trips abroad.
3. The implementation of a region wide playing system and training standard. All our Region Teams and State Teams will follow the US Soccer playing style of 4-3-3 and training curriculum. Each region camp will have a theme and all the states and pool games will be trained on the thematic topic. In this way, all the players at camp benefit from the experience and leave camp with more knowledge, having learned how to play their position within a possession oriented system in accordance with the US Soccer philosophy.
4. The creation of a Region III Coaching Manual that ensures consistent training of the highest standards and best practices for all State and Region Teams.
5. The camp schedule and format will integrate all camp activities for optimal instruction, from the morning games, to the afternoon lectures, late afternoon training sessions and pool games at night. The objective is for everyone, not just those who get selected to the region pools, to benefit and grow as soccer players.
ODP players who come from states that don’t have any US Soccer Development academy clubs, as well as players who come from clubs that are not part of the US Soccer Development Academy will benefit in many ways from these new changes. The ODP training curriculum will expose them to unique training methods. The ODP is a true player development environment where game results really are secondary and individual player development is the overriding goal. The ODP doesn’t have to deal with the pressures to win that exist in club soccer and our state and region staff can focus their attention on purely developmental aspects of the game. And lastly, quality players from states such as OK, AR, MS, LA, AL, and TN and players from the non-academy clubs in FL, GA, NC, SC, STX, and NTx have a much better chance of being selected to the region pools than in the past.
Please feel free to contact your state association’s Technical Director if you have any questions about ODP. We look forward to seeing you at Region Camp.
