The Cal South PRO+ Olympic Development Program (ODP) is one of the most successful programs in the country at placing players on U.S. Soccer Youth National Teams. Cal South PRO+ ODP’s coaches and scouts cover the Southern California youth soccer landscape annually to identify the top players in each boys’ and girls’ age group from 12U-17U.
Upon identification, the aim of PRO+ ODP is to then help the players develop and advance to the level they aspire: college, professional, or international teams. Players also have the opportunity to compete for Cal South State Teams that compete at the annual ODP West Regional Championships and other high-level national or international events.
Cal South PRO+ ODP teams have won 38 ODP National Championships, including sweeping all four national titles in 2013 and 2014. No other US Youth Soccer State Association has accomplished a sweep of the ODP Nationals even once. Cal South PRO+ ODP also regularly places over 40% of its players into the U.S. National Team player pools.
