JUNIOR ODYSSEY DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY
The Junior Odyssey Development Academy (Junior ODA) is an innovative and engaging opportunity presented by Odyssey in Central New York. This Academy is developed with skill development paired with pure fun for the younger soccer player as its focus. As part of the Odyssey Difference, Junior ODA is a program where soccer skills are taught through enjoyable and engaging soccer themed games and activities. Motor skills, cognitive abilities and peer relationships are also formed through Junior ODA which helps prepare younger players for both on and off the field experiences.
The youth players that enroll in Junior ODA will be engaged in creative situations which allows them to additionally foster their decision making skills. This program has an emphasis on the importance of working to improve individually and not how a Junior ODA player compares to another player. The Junior Odyssey Development Academy program is held in the fall, winter and spring of each year. This program is for boys and girls who are ages six to ten years old.
The Junior Odyssey Development Academy is not only designed to help the younger player become familiar with the game, but also to prepare them for future competitive soccer experiences. The fun and love of the game gained through this Academy are evident at the end of each training session. As each training session is completed, the Junior ODA Players always ask for extra time to stay and train with our professional coaches and the new friends they’ve made. The confidence and pure enjoyment exhibited by the Junior ODA players personifies the mission of the Odyssey Development Academy.

Michael Mauro Conveys How The Odyssey Difference Starts at a Young Age for Proper Player Development...
"The key to fostering a passion for the sport of soccer is to make each youth training session highly engaging, while candidly teaching the foundations of soccer that will benefit these younger players both on and off the field. The Junior Odyssey Development Academy successfully accomplishes this perfect combination of making soccer enjoyable through activities that foster teamwork and personal growth."
