The Vermont ODP U12 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 players technical ability and understanding of small group tactics. Goalkeepers will receive field skill training, team training, and limited individual training. 

Players born in 2007 and 2008 with a strong soccer background looking for a unique training environment to supplement or enhance their club team experience.

(1) Technique, (2) Tactics, (3) Fitness and Athletic Ability, and (4) Attitude

Trainings will begin in May and finish in June.  All players will participate in a one day U12 Festival in June, 2019 in Lancaster, MA and a 4 day U12 East Region ODP Camp in July 2019.

U12 FALL ODP for the FALL OF 2018


The goal of the U12 Fall ODP Training is to provide a competitive, next-level training environment for competitive players born in 2007 & 2008.  Through training sessions and one-on-one coaching, the ODP aims to provide self-assurance, self-confidence, and the necessary habits-of-mind to enable every player to progress to the next level.  The goal is to also identify those players eligible for ODP consideration for the 2019 season. 

This is a six week program held at the Tree Farm Recreational Facility in Essex Jct, VT.
