OYSA & Portland Timbers
Olympic Development Program


The Olympic Development Program (ODP) is a national program which is designed to identify and develop talented, committed youth soccer players to represent their state, region, and country in soccer competitions.  It is also intended to prepare and showcase the players as student/athletes for exposure to professional and collegiate soccer programs.  It is clear that the Portland Timbers and Oregon Youth Soccer Association (“OYSA”) ODP program have similar objectives for the Elite Player in their geographical area and will work together to achieve this mission.

Through a collaborative effort between the Portland Timbers and OYSA ODP Program, Oregon will have a nationally recognized ODP program and the Portland Timbers MLS franchise with a cutting-edge youth development and academy system.  In addition, this will provide an integrated pathway to developing necessary home-grown talent to support MLS objectives and lessen the future cost for the organization identifying and paying for players from outside the market and even the country.
