ODP Player Assessment Criteria

WHAT DO ALABAMA ODP COACHES AND SCOUTS LOOK FOR?

Coaches assess players in their performance of the Key Qualities of a US Soccer Player for their Position Specific Role.

 


WHAT IF MY CHILD IS NOT FAMILIAR WITH THESE QUALITIES, ETC.?

In each Alabama ODP ID & Training Center coaches run training exercises and games where they teach these qualities with special emphasis on the positional role a player is in.  This approach also teaches a style of play focused on purposeful possession which helps players develop.  To learn more about this way of playing click here.
