Alabama Elite

Alabama Elite is a spring training and event program for high school aged players who want something more than the typical high school soccer experience. Players selected for the program are committed to their development and getting to the next level as a player. Alabama Elite serves as an affiliate program with AL ODP–meaning ODP Pool Players are automatically eligible for Alabama Elite and vice-versa.


The Alabama Elite program takes place during the spring season. Tryouts are held towards the end of the fall season prior to the spring.

Training takes place three nights per week on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings. As an affiliate program of AL ODP, training closely follows the ODP Style of Play with emphasis placed on decision making when in possession. Our game schedule is comprised of friendly games and tournaments with some being out of state.

The Alabama Elite Staff is comprised of coaching professionals from different backgrounds ranging from USSF Coach Educators to college professors.

Kevin Laux M.S.S. – Technical Director of ASA
Gavin Owens – Technical Programs Assistant of ASA
Oleg Sinelnikov, P.H.D – Professor of Sport Pedagogy at Univ. of Alabama
