NH ODP hosts ME & VT ODP in 9v9 Subregional Tournament

Over the next two weekends, New Hampshire Olympic Development Program will be hosting Maine and Vermont ODP for a 9v9 Subregional Tournament in the Hooksett and Goffstown Sportsdomes. The tournament format is round-robin with New Hampshire having two teams per age group (2012-2007) and Maine and Vermont having one team per age group.

These games will be an excellent opportunity for our NH ODP state pool players to showcase their skills against outside competition, and in front of the State Coaching Staff. NH ODP state pool players have been training together since late November and will continue until early February, which is when the State Team roster will be announced.

What is ODP?

NH ODP is a supplemental program to your soccer team.

The US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP) is a national identification and development program that identifies youth soccer players throughout the country, to represent their state association, region, and the US National Youth Teams in international soccer competitions.

ODP teams are formed at the state and regional levels, made up of the best players in various age groups. At the state association level, a pool of players are identified in each eligible age group and brought together as a group to develop their skills through training and competition. This Training Pool takes place in New Hampshire from November to February. From the state pools a State team is selected to represent New Hampshire to play against other State Teams in regional events. From State Teams players are identified for regional and national pools and teams.

Why ODP?

In 2021, Greta Caulton from our 2005 Girls NH Team was selected out of hundreds of players to be on the East Region ODP team. Greta attended the ODP Interregional Event in November where she played for the East Region and competed amongst the top ‘05 Girls across the country! Based on her play in the tournament, the ODP coaching staff selected Greta to the 23-player roster to represent the ODP National Team for her age group. Greta traveled down to Tampa, FL in January to meet her teammates from around the country and showcase her abilities in front of the national staff, top academies, and college coaches. Her coach…US Soccer Legend, Brandi Chastain. Greta has committed to play at the University of New Hampshire. She is just one of many success stories within NH ODP and its alumni every year.

Players will be evaluated by our NH State Coaching staff, which is made up of 50% college coaches, national licensed coaches, and high-level club/high school coaches from around NH.

ODP Process and Cycle:

The ODP seasonal cycle begins with open tryouts in June.  The open tryouts are to identify and select players for the winter NH State Pool Training Program.  The NH State Pool Training runs from mid-November through February. At the end of this training, the State ODP Teams are selected. State Team training goes from April to June, and ends with the East Region ODP Tournament and summer ODP Identification Camps.

Why ODP?

In 2021, Greta Caulton from our 2005 Girls NH Team was selected out of hundreds of players to be on the East Region ODP team. Greta attended the ODP Interregional Event in November where she played for the East Region and competed amongst the top ‘05 Girls across the country! Based on her play in the tournament, the ODP coaching staff selected Greta to the 23-player roster to represent the ODP National Team for her age group. Greta traveled down to Tampa, FL in January to meet her teammates from around the country and showcase her abilities in front of the national staff, top academies, and college coaches. Her coach…US Soccer Legend, Brandi Chastain.

A statement from Greta on her ODP National Team selection:

“Ever since I was very young, I’ve always dreamed of someday being on the US Women’s National Team. I wrote a note to myself in the sixth grade, saying I hope to someday make it there. But, I was aware of the journey, and I knew I had to start soon. Everyone has to start somewhere. That’s why I’d like to thank all of my New Hampshire ODP friends, for setting the bar so high during my first few practices for NH ODP. I was only in eighth grade during this time, and this was my first time training with an elite group of girls. This helped me realize that I’m done dreaming about someday being on the national team. This could be real.

And since then, I’m so glad that I started. Friends and peers often ask me how I’m not jumping up and down about this news. Obviously I’m ecstatic for my accomplishments, but I also try to be humble about it. This wasn’t just news emailed to me out of the blue. I worked day and night for years to make it here, and I’m so glad the work paid off.”

NH ODP Partners with Local Colleges to Provide Overnight Soccer Experiences

ODP ResidentialThe New Hampshire Olympic Development Program (ODP) is excited to announce our partnership with St. Anselm’s Women’s Soccer and University of New Hampshire Men’s Soccer programs to provide an overnight soccer camp experience for our ODP players. As a coaching staff, we strongly encourage developing youth players to attend a residential soccer experience, preferably at a university, to support their growth as a soccer player and individual. Fortunately, we have two local college programs that are offering exceptional overnight camps in which youth players will be instructed by high-level college coaches and current players.

“I would like to thank Coach Joel Bancroft of St. A’s and Coach Marc Hubbard of UNH for creating an outstanding opportunity for our ODP players to attend a residential soccer camp and learn from the top coaches and players within our state, region, and country. I recommend all ODP families to take advantage of these camps because the overnight experience is incredibly beneficial for a young player’s personal growth and development. We look forward to building on these partnerships in the future including our ODP players attending St. A’s and UNH soccer games, hosting training sessions ran by college coaches and players, and receiving educational information for our ODP players interested in the college game,” stated NH ODP Program Director, Brad Campion.

“The week of our overnight camp we look forward to every year! When we launched our camp four years ago it was with a clear focus. Can we share our amazing campus with our community? Can we attract the top players in our beautiful state and region to our program? Can we use as a platform for youth players of New Hampshire to gain an understanding of what it’s like to compete at a high collegiate level as well as additional exposure to collegiate coaches and programs in our area. Over 90% of our current roster has attended camp. Whether it be at Saint Anselm or another program we have been incredibly successful helping youth players make connections and find the right fit for their collegiate academic & athletic experience.“
