U19 MNT- 3 players from FCDallas did ODP help them?

Post by FusionFC2011 on 18/04/16, 03:32 pm

I will post our success stories here for our Girls and Boys who have made National team and pools- I will post in the ODP section as isn't that the goal of ODP to get players better in an ODP training pool to make the regional pool, then to make the National pool, and then the National Team? The question is ??? Are they being helped or developed significantly from ODP or is it the Club Coaches, private lessons, and self determination to succeed.....wonder how many of these players go to ODP from U11-U18? Has ECNL and DA and clubs done most of the work??

I am sure ODP does give players who are in it new and different coaching and in some cases better coaching but the talent level in the ODP is not the best of the best. It is players that need upper level coaches coaching them and giving them the basic technical and tactical skills that they do not get from their club coaches. One would assume though that the top 5-6 clubs are already giving that to the top players and top teams in their club. The rest of the players in the top clubs well they fend for themselves and parents have to find good coaches scattered in the mass of coaches in the top clubs who can teach the basic skills and tactics or they should also do maybe ODP or private lessons.
Lots to think about.
