About the USL Super Y-League:
Founded in 1999, the Super Y-League is dedicated to the progression of future professional players. Averaging 700 teams since 2004, the Super Y-League has steered the course for development of elite clubs, players, and coaches. Affiliated with US Soccer, the Super Y-League ODP Program has opened countless doors for players to be identified for U.S. National Team Programs. The Super Y-League contains the youth academies of Major League Soccer clubs, USL PRO clubs, Premier Development League and W-League clubs. The league also serves clubs looking to develop the game from the ground up. Top youth academies such as Weston FC, Mass Premier Soccer and TSF Academy have been members of the league for several seasons. USL’s Super Y-League has revolutionized youth player development in North America.
The Super Y-League ODP Philosophy
To identify players for U.S. National Team Programs, within their natural environment during competition on their club team during the Super Y-League season.
The Super Y-League ODP system was started in 2003 to recognize a pool of players in each age group for identification to U.S. National Team Programs; and to utilize the clubs system in the United States to identify players.
How do I participate?
Contact a local Super Y-League club in order to become a part of the Super Y-League ODP system. Players will be scouted during league play by the national scouting system of the Super Y-League, which is comprised of all of the coaches within the clubs of the league.
Program Description History
In 2002, the Super Y-League, through US Soccer and the United States Olympic Committee, was granted ODP programs to identify players for U.S. National Team Programs. The first selection process began during the 2003 season to identify players for Regional Team selection events, where U.S. National Staff Coaches scouted players for National Team Programs. In addition to many players being identified for U.S. National Team Programs, top players are identified by leading college and university soccer programs throughout the United States.
The Super Y-League ODP Selection Process
During the regular season players are evaluated during their games by the opposing team coaches for tactical, physical and psychological characteristics that will determine their ability to attend the ODP National Camp typically held in February and March. Through the scouting system, the combined nominations will be used, along with proportional allocation in conjunction with Director of Coaching recommendations, to determine invitations to the ODP camps. The overall number of games and teams will also be factored into this process.
What are SYL ODP National Camps?
The top players chosen by the scouting system in each age group per geographic division of the Super Y-League will attend the ODP National Camp. These camps are attended by U.S. National Staff Coaches to identify players for U.S. National Team Programs, as well as many of the nation’s top collegiate coaches. The camps are typically held in Florida during February and March.
What are the Benefits of Participating in the Super Y-League ODP system?
- The selection of players within their natural environment on their club teams within league play, as opposed to an open-tryout system. Many players do not participate in the open-tryout ODP system operated by state associations, and other players do not perform well in the open tryout process.
- Exposure to the U.S. National Staff and Team Coaches.
- Exposure to professional and collegiate scouts.
- There is no cost to be scouted or to try out. The scouting system is built into league play and contains no additional ODP fees. Only those selected to attend ODP camps will incur camp fees.
