Alabama Soccer Association's Olympic Development Program identifies, trains, and provides opportunities for the top level players and those players striving to reach elite levels to progress up the pathway to the highest level of play. Players participating in Alabama ODP compete for a personal invitation to the USYS Regional Invitational Identification Camp held each summer for the top players in our Region. Individual players (Teams will no longer attend) will receive direct invitations from the Region to attend the camp.

ODP acts as a supplement to club soccer, giving players opportunities to play with and against the best, while providing them exposure at the regional, national, and even international levels.


WHAT DO COACHES AND SCOUTS LOOK FOR?

Players are evaluated based on their performance in the Key Qualities of a US Soccer Player and the Position Specific Roles. Alabama ODP ID Center's training sessions teach a style of play focused on expressing these Key Qualities through a purposeful possession approach to playing the game. To learn more about this way of playing click here.

Our Alabama ODP Scouting & Coaching Staff is comprised of coaches at the club and college levels who are nationally licensed, skilled evaluators of talent who are committed to the development of each player and the game of soccer.

Alabama Soccer Association understands that conflicts will arise. Players must register for each State ID Center. For Showcase Events, 14-22 players for each age groups will be selected to represent Alabama as a 'State Team'. For any age group where there is a deep pool of talent, and especially the younger age groups there may be more than one team.


MISCELLANEOUS

  1. The state reserves the right to add or release players at any time.
  2. AHSAA players are allowed one "evaluation" per month based on AHSAA rules during their high school season. For clarification, please contact AHSAA for questions. Players interested in participating in ODP full-time during the spring season instead of playing high school soccer should see Alabama Elite.
