Young Olympians Registration Announcement

The NJ Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP) will begin programming for its Young Olympians program (birth years 2009-2010) in October. Sessions are hosted regionally (south, shore/central and north) to facilitate participation throughout the state. Click here for registration links and details. Sessions will be covered throughout the state by a consistent core of coaches with regional sessions (south, shore/central and north) being hosted to facilitate state-wide participation. This effort will establish consistency in training session and related player evaluations.

The Young Olympians Program, designed specifically for players born in 2009 and 2010, is an introductory stage for players who aspire to play at a high level. Young Olympians provides a path to participate in ODP. Players' abilities will be assessed and the sessions will be segmented so that players are training with others of like ability. The Young Olympians program will focus on improving the player's technical ability and tactical awareness while exposing players and parents to a US Youth Soccer and NJYS ODP environment.

The Young Olympians Program includes training sessions, camp and a festival featuring small-sided games. Pre-registration is required. To ensure a proper training environment, registration will be limited to fifty (50) players on a first come first served basis. If demand exceeds capacity, NJ Youth Soccer will create a wait list and seek solutions for those individuals desiring to participate.
