U12 Fall Development Program Participants

U12 Training Program (Boys & Girls)
The Vermont ODP U11/U12 ODP Select Development Program is dedicated entirely to individual player development.  The coaching philosophy is player-centered with clear, concise and honest feedback.  ODP provides an efficient developmental training environment where players have the opportunity to excel. The primary focus is to provide training that will improve each player’s technical ability and understanding of small group tactics.  Goalkeepers will receive field skill training, team training, and limited individual training
