Boys and girls born in 1999, 2000 and 2001 are eligible for participation in the 2016 Minnesota US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program. The program is open to all players; however, competition for selection is tough. There will be two identification sessions. Players are encouraged to attend both sessions.
At the conclusion of the process, approximately 24–30 players will be selected for each (birth year and gender) state pool for further Minnesota US Youth Soccer ODP training.
US Youth Soccer ODP has played a meaningful role in player development in the United States providing top players valuable experience and a platform to improve. US Youth Soccer ODP is an excellent opportunity for each player to challenge themselves by playing with and against other players from different parts of the state, region and for a selected few nationally. There is always good competition, and when you're able to evaluate players in these scenarios, you have a better idea of how they will fare as they attempt to reach the next level in their soccer career.
Registration and payment includes two tryout shirts. Questions may be directed to Chato Alvarado at 952-252-1688 (800-366-6972) or email@example.com.

After the Spring Festival, a pool of approximately 36 players (2002 & 2003 age groups) and a pool of approximately 45–50 players (2004 age group) will be identified for further training and potential selection to a regional event in 2016.
