Eastern New York to Host Our Third Annual ODP Sub Regional in Colonie


By Randy Vogt, Director of Public Relations, Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association

March 15, 2023-The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) is very pleased to announce that our Third Annual ODP Sub Regional will take place on April 29 and 30 at Afrim’s Sports Park in Colonie. Hosting are the North and South Olympic Development Program (ODP) teams from Eastern New York. Because the geographic region of our state association is quite large, we feature both North and South ODP teams.

The Under-12 to Under-17 boys will be playing on Saturday, April 29 while the girls in those same age groups will be competing on Sunday, April 30.


This Player ID Tournament includes seven state associations in 2023 as Connecticut, Eastern Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey and New York West will be coming to take on the best from Eastern New York.

“This is our third year of regional classification. College coaches and regional coaches will be scouting the players participating a month before the ODP Regional ID Tournament, making the coaches’ job a little easier in evaluating these great players,” explained Eastern New York ODP Director Jim Volpe.

ODP is the highest level of play in each state association and Eastern New York has a particularly strong ODP. Crystal Dunn and Allie Long are Eastern New York ODP graduates and current Women’s World Cup champs.
