Pioneering the future of player development.


The Tennessee State Soccer Association (TSSA) is committed to providing Premier Player Development opportunities to our players.  We offer a robust Player Development Program (PDP), which is comprised of Traditional ODP and District Training Centers (DTC).  Traditional ODP and our DTCs are two programs within the PDP that complement each other.  Players may participate in either one or both.  There are no mandatory events in either program.
For the 2018-2019 seasonal year, ODP will include players from U12 (2007 birth year) through U17 (2002 birth year); District Training Centers will accept players from U9 (2010 birth year) through U17 (2002 birth year).  Players have developmental opportunities through local events (DTCs) offered regularly in multiple cities across the state, and additional opportunities to develop through our centralized ODP (most events in Middle Tennessee).  TSSA recognizes that Player Development occurs primarily at the individual club or team level, and our Player Development Programs are designed to complement those endeavors, not conflict with them.
