Some Recent Players’ Experience with ODP

Emma Fournier (Maple Grove, Minn. and MapleBrook) and Molly Knoblauch (Coon Rapids, Minn. & Minnesota Thunder Academy) recently represented Minnesota at the ODP Interregional Event in Boca Raton, Fla. Nov. 16–22, 2018 where they played with and against the best ODP players in the country.

“Thank you again for the opportunities you’ve helped me experience through ODP. I am so grateful for the new friendships made with amazing players from our region, the challenges that helped my skill development, and the soccer doors this has helped open. I am especially thankful for MYSA’s financial support for the Boca Trip this year. Traveling soccer can be incredibly expensive and this unexpected assistance came at the perfect time for my family.”

– Emma Fournier (2003)

“Being in Boca was a lot of fun! Thank you for making this trip possible for me and making everything fun. Thank you very much! I made some great memories and the experience means a lot to me.”

– Molly Knoblauch (2004)
