Indiana Olympic Development Program Opportunity for MCUSC Players
Dear Parents and Players:
The Indiana Olympic Development Program (ODP) goals are to provide for the unfolding of ideas about the game of soccer, to provide the players confidence and ideas to solve problems the game presents them, and to provide opportunities for the gradual growth and advancement through challenging, creative, and positive training and playing environments.
The following opportunities are available for players to tryout and be invited to join the Indiana State Pool for 2018-2019 in their respective age groups. Eligible age groups for the fall are 2004 (players not in high school), 2005, 2006 and 2007.

For those players born in 2008, 2009, 2010, the ODP is excited to continue "Junior Olympians: An Introduction to the Olympic Development Program" for the 2018-19 season. Junior Olympians is designed to be an introduction for players born in 2008 (11U) and 2009 (10U) into the ODP system and training environment that they will encounter in future years. The Junior Olympians program will educate and train the parent and player on the mission of the US Youth Soccer/Indiana Soccer ODP, while supplementing their club soccer schedule. The curriculum consists of age appropriate training sessions that mirror the recommendations of the US Soccer's National Curriculum and uses the Long Term Player Development Model (LTPD) lead by our National Licensed Coaches.
The Winter Phase (AKA Phase 2) of the Junior Olympians Program is taking place this Fall on December 8, December 9, December 15, December 16, January 5 and January 6. Cost for each session is $30.
