The Indiana Olympic Development Program serves 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.
How To Participate.
You must be identified and invited to join the Indiana Olympic Development Program. Players must be formally invited to participate in State Pool Training through the tryout process. Indiana ODP tryouts are open to any soccer player
Each player is fairly evaluated in the four components of the game (technical, tactical, psychological, and physical), their creativity and problem solving ability, their ability to contribute to the team, an individual’s versatility as a player, and the ability to be competitive within the current State Pool.
How ODP Tryouts Work
For the 2023-2024 season, players born from 2007- 2013 are eligible to tryout for the ODP State Training Pool. Please note that high school players will not try out until after October 29, 2023. Players should attend both tryout sessions on the date they register to attend if their schedule allows. Players identified during tryouts will be invited to join the state pool.

The Indiana Olympic Development Program Coaches go to tournaments to identify players and also watch league and high school games to identify players through direct participation with their club and high school teams. Players identified through the scouting program will be invited directly into the State Pool in their respective age group.
Recommendations from ODP State, Regional & National Coaches
Indiana ODP solicits recommendations from coaches around the state, region and nation who have seen players in their normal playing environments. If a player is recommended directly to the Indiana Olympic Development Program the player will either be invited directly into the State Pool or will be asked to attend an Evaluation session (tryout) for further evaluation.
